  • Help shrink belly fat

    Some obese people with large amounts of belly fat are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes due to insulin resistance. In this game, we invite you to move the insulin towards the cell receptors so that they glucose transporters are activated. Let's see if you can do it!

  • Develop a drug in this race against time!

    Would you like to participate in the process involved in developing a drug from its initial design up to when it is brought onto the market? You'll need to find the best candidate and carry out animal and human testing before the drug can be approved and sold.

  • Reading the book of our DNA

    How can we find new technologies which will help us analyse the genome quickly and more cheaply? In the video, scientists explain to us why they are close to coming to a solution where the method will be available in everyday medicine which will help improve treatment. 

  • What my genes say about me

    Did you know that how you perceive tastes depends on your genes? That and many other traits. Learn how DNA passes on its message, factors that influence how it works and recent advances in genetics which mean we can now carry out more personalised studies. 

  • Identifying cells responsible for the origin of metastases

    Until now, treatment for colorectal cancer was aimed at treating all the cells in a tumor in the same way. Researchers at the Colorectal Cancer Laboratory of the Institute for Research in Biomedicine in Barcelona are developing a technology to identify some stemcells and their genes in a colon tumor, that are to be responsible for metastases.

  • Do we speak the same genome?

    In this video, researchers explain to us a new project which attempts to unify the method used in different laboratories to read the information written in genes. The aim is to made advances in the techniques which will help us discover more about the genetic base of diseases which should help us prevent, diagnose and treat them. 

  • Research a new cure for bowel cancer!

    Do you want to investigate a new cure for the bowel cancer? In this virtual experiment we invite you to do sequencing genetics and to identify genes that could inhibit the proliferation of tumoral stem cells.

  • Can you cure with cells?

    What options for the treatment of disease do stem cells offer us? In the video we'll see how different researchers explain the research project they're working on which aims to produce different cells from stem cells with the aim of developing therapies for regenerating tissue in...

  • Working for a malaria-free world

    Malaria is a disease which causes a great deal of personal suffering, but is also a great social and economic burden on poor countries. The video shows how the disease is spread and how this can be prevented. 

  • HIV, the virus with multiple changing faces

    What is HIV? What does its replication cycle look like? How is it transmitted? This video will provide the answers to these questions, and will give you information on the number of people affected, the different phases of the illness, groups at risk and the reasons why the figures for new infections are rising in groups which are theoretically not at risk.
