Gene crucial for growth of Ewing sarcoma uncovered

Researchers at the Institut de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu in collaboration with those at Centre for Genomic Regulation have discovered that RING1B is a critical gene for the development of Ewing sarcoma, a rare type of developmental cancer that presents in bones and soft tissues.

  1. Researchers discover a new genetic disease of the nervous and cardiac systems

    The study, led by Dra. Àngels Garcia-Cazorla (Institut de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu), and scientists from IRSJD, IDIBELL and CIBERER, is published in the prestigious journal 'Acta Neuropathologica'.

  2. Institut de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu and ICFO create a joint lab to improve neonatal and paediatric health care

    The new joint laboratory will advance the use and development of photonic technologies to understand, diagnose, monitor and treat paediatric diseases.

  1. Dr Maria Rubio awarded a scientific excellence grant from the European Research Council (ERC)

    This financial award will fund an intervention in several primary care centres in Catalonia and is designed to encourage people with diabetes and cardiovascular disease to begin and comply with the pharmacological treatments as prescribed by their physician.

  2. Reproduce various stages of Ewing's sarcoma in mice

    Researchers at Institut de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu reproduce various stages of Ewing's sarcoma in mice to explain its resistance to medication.

  3. The european ImmunAID project starts its clinical phase

    The ImmunAID project aims to develop new diagnostic signatures for systemic auto-inflammatory diseases (SAID). Ultimately, the aim is to offer better care for these rare disease patients. Systemic auto-inflammatory diseases (SAID) are a complex and poorly understood group of rare diseases.

  4. Gate2Brain, the “key” to transporting drugs into the brain and improving their effectiveness

    Gate2Brain technology is based on a research line developed at IRB Barcelona and breakthroughs made jointly with the University of Barcelona and the Institut de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu - SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital.

  5. Care robotics can help patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD)

    An IRSJD research team develop a robotic wheelchair helps to improve the physical condition of people with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

  6. Kids Corona Project presents the preliminary results

    A study made by SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital · Instritut de Recerca Sant Joan de Déu reveals that 17% of children who have had contact with a sick person have become infected. Children have a similar prevalence of COVID-19 antibodies to adults, but more than 99% have mild symptoms.
