The BIB website details the bioinformatic activities of 40 partners and over 80 research groups.
The association aims to respond to the needs of all stakeholders involved in bioinformatics.
Bioinformatics Barcelona Association (BIB) launches its website www.bioinformaticsbarcelona.eu, which aims to be a reference in the bioinformatic sector at national and international level, and to become the platform for communication and interaction among BIB's partners. Through this website, the association has enhanced its digital presence to become a meeting-point facilitator of initiatives and a think tank for the bioinformatic community.The portal contains sections on the BIB partners and their research groups in the bioinformatic field, and on education and training (including our master program), job offers and internships, news, activities and news clipping, as well as a section with specific information on the association itself.
Como parte de la actividad de su "aceleradora" EIT Health lanza dos iniciativas dirigidas a ideas de negocio, PYMEs, spin-offs y start-ups ups innovadoras del ámbito de la salud: los premios "Business plan aggregator" y las convocatorias de ayudas "Head start" y "Proof of concept".
The Jury of the Award for Biomedical Research of the Banco Sabadell Foundation has recognized Núria López-Bigas, leader of the Biomedical Genomics group of GRIB (UPF-IMIM) and coordinator of the Elements of Biocomputing subject in our MSc Programme, as the winner of the 2016 prize, endowed with 50,000 euros. In this eleventh edition there have been a total of 53 candidates with profiles of basic research, clinical and epidemiological. The jury decided to give this prize to Núria López-Bigas, for her contribution to the development of new bioinformatics methods to study cancer genomes. Her work opens up new avenues for the classification of cancer patients according to their tumors carry mutations and thus advance the implementation of the most appropriate individualized for each patient therapies.
" This award helps to give visibility to the Biomedical Research and lets the society know the people who do research. It is a social recognition of the work we do and it is an honor for me that the research done in my group has been recognized" said Núria when knowing the news." In Barcelona, high quality biomedicine research is made with leading research groups in this field to develop high-impact projects for society. For me, it is a luxury to do research in this environment and appear next to the remains of scientists who have been honored with this award".
President of the jury, Carlos Lopez-Otín, Professor at the University of Oviedo, said " The Banc Sabadell Foundation renews once again its commitment to research and scientific talent to recognize and support the most outstanding young in the field of biomedicine."
