Research needs you

[In Spanish] On Tuesday, September 24, the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) celebrated World Cancer Research Day with a conference in which, under the title ‘New horizons in cancer research: from bench to bedside’, the milestones and the future of cancer research were addressed, as well as the latest advances in the study of metastasis -causing 90% of cancer-related deaths-, myths about the disease to overcome, and the process leading from making a discovery to its application in patients. The event was aimed at the general public and was held at CaixaForum Madrid with the support of “la Caixa”.

The researcher and theoretical physicist at Columbia University Raúl Rabadán gave the keynote lecture ‘The Genomic Revolution in Cancer’, in which he focused on how the era of Big Data and the interaction between different disciplines such as oncology, physics and engineering is revolutionising cancer research.

Afterwards, a round table was held with the participation of the CNIO Director Maria Blasco, CNIO researcher Manuel Valiente, oncologist Yolanda Fernández of the Central University Hospital of Asturias, and former patient and ‘CNIO Friend’ Mila García Calvo.
