Recerca Biomèdica en Tumors Digestius a Vall d'Hebron Institut de Recerca

Our laboratory’s main area of interest is the study of molecular events underlying the tumour formation process in the digestive system, especially in colorectal cancer.


Focusing on tumours in the digestive system, the group is working on diagnosis and prognosis tools in this type of condition, in order to get closer to early and more effective treatment. It is also studying the genetic and epigenetic causes and some of the mechanisms that occur in tumours, in order to increase the knowledge of the peculiarities of this type of cancer. In short, it is gaining deeper knowledge of the molecular mechanisms responsible for tumour formation, allowing diagnosis and treatment to be improved.
