The objective of the group is to contribute to improving cancer treatment through preclinical research on in vitro and ex vivo models, biomarker studies for predicting responses and pharmacodynamics and clinical trials.

The group is led by Dr. Joan Albanell, Director of the Medical Oncology Service at the Hospital del Mar, and the recipient of a grant for research intensification.

Dr. Albanell has made numerous contributions to clinical and translational research in oncology, which he performed at the Hospitals Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre (1995-96), the Hospitals de la Vall d’Hebron (1997-2002) and Hospital Clínic (2002-June 2005). He is a member of the Board of Directors of ASEICA (Spanish Association of Research against Cancer), of GEICAM (Spanish Breast Cancer Research Group) and SEOM (Spanish Society of Medical Oncology).

The group, made up of oncologists, pathologists and biologists, is part of the CIBERONC consortium, the Center for Biomedical Research in Red Cancer, and is a group recognized as a group consolidated by the AGAUR, the Agency for Management of University an Research Grants.

It is structured in three laboratories or research areas:

  • Research in breast cancer, led by Dr. Joan Albanell
