Vascular biology and signalling group

The Vascular Biology and Signalling lab is located in the Bellvitge Institute for Biomedical Research (IDIBELL) in Barcelona, and is part of the Molecular Mechanisms and Experimental Therapy in Oncology Program (OncoBell). The group is affiliated with the Catalan Institute of Oncology within the Program Against Cancer Therapeutic Resistance (ProCURE) and also belongs to the CIBERONC a consortium dependent of the Instituto de Salud Carlos III. The main aim of our research is to understand the physiology of blood vessels and their role in disease towards the development of therapeutic strategies to target the vascular compartment.
