Coinciding with World Cancer Day on February 4, the Minister of Science and Innovation Diana Morant met with researchers from the IMIM-Hospital del Mar and the Barcelona Biomedical Research Institute of the CSIC to find out the results of a study for the early detection of pancreatic cancer, published in the journal eBioMedicine. This study was carried out through the Associated Unit "MECHANISMS OF TUMORIGENESIS AND TUMOR PROGRESSION", an Associated Unit of I+D+i to the CSIC formed by researchers from the IIBB and the IMIM-Hospital del Mar. This study is part of the activity carried out at the IIBB studying the molecular bases of cancer, one of our areas of interest.
