Dr. Eduard Batlle explains the complexities of Colorectal Cancer in an IDIBAPS Seminar

Colorectal Cancer (CRC) is one of the leading causes of death by cancer worldwide. Dr. Eduard Batlle leads the Oncology Program and the Colorectal Cancer Laboratory at the Barcelona’s Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB), where they study the initiation of CRC and its progression from the early stages to the formation of invasive tumors. On Monday June 17th he offered an IDIBAPS Seminar titled “Understanding Colorectal Cancer as a Stem Cell hierarchy”. The Seminar was presented by Dr. Cristina Nadal, IDIBAPS investigator at the Molecular and translational oncology team that collaborated with Dr. Batlle in some of the results he presented. The Seminar turned out to be one of the recent sessions with the highest participation from the audience.
