'We investigate the patterns and mechanisms of genomic variation in disease'

Genomes and Disease lab has participated at Ciencia Singular open day of CIMUS to bring science to everyone.

The PhD student Paula Otero has received the extraordinary award of the Biomedical Sciences degree from the University of Lleida in a ceremony chaired by the dean.

The Association Vigo contra el Cancer of Vigo organizes the VII Race Vigo Against Cancer this Sunday on Vigo. This year 90% of the earnings will support the project OCTOPUS, in which our Translational Molecular Oncology group participates (http://genomesdisease.tech/translational-molecular-oncology), and the other 10% for activities with the children hospitalized in Oncology at the Hospital Álvaro Cunqueiro of Vigo. OCTOPUS is a translational and multidisciplinary project focused on advances Lung Cancer using NGS and liquid biopsy (more info at https://proxectooctopus.org/). If you would like to participate, donations are welcome at http://vigocontraelcancer.es/.

Today, Sara Lafuente has presented a poster about the crabs that we find inside the cockles while Alicia L. Bruzos presented the effects that colchicine has on the integrity of DNA.

Today, three PhD students from Genomes & Diseases lab have presented their preliminary results at VI Edición Investigación Biomédica del Cáncer en Galicia (IBCG)

Dra. Martínez-Fernández, Head of Translational Molecular Oncology, has been awarded with a project “Ideas Semillas” of the Spanish Society of Against Cancer (AECC). These projects are aimed to support new innovative opportunities for cancer research. Our project is focused on deciphering new molecular mechanisms in immunotherapy response in lung cancer. The awards ceremony took place the past 24 th September at Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid on the occasion of the World Cancer Research Day (WCRD 2019) with the presence of the Queen Letizia of Spain.

Seila Díaz Costas was awarded an Assemble Plus project to asses the disseminated neoplasia of Irish cockles at the National University of Ireland Galway. After spending one month in the lab of Prof. Mark Johnson, Seila and Alicia come back to G&D with plenty of new samples to analyse.

Andrea Varela y Miriam Álvarez, estudantes de Comunicación Audiovisual da UVigo, presentan su video sobre Scuba Cancers al concurso de GCiencia y quedan finalistas.

Today at the International Society for Evolution, Ecology and Cancer Conference Martín and Alicia have talked about their preliminary results on their PhD projects. Alex Cagan has sketched them during the talk, take a look at the draw

Today, Adrián Báez from the University of Cambridge is visiting Genomes & Disease lab to consolidate our collaborations and talk about an age-old cancer genome

Genomes and Disease lab has taken advantage of #DNAday to bring genomics to students so they could understand how important science is.

This year our group changes it's name !!!
