“We study the different genetic and epigenetic alterations associated with the clinical and pathological behaviours of paediatric tumours, with the aim of identifying new biomarkers and therapeutic targets that allow advances in the treatment”

Cinzia Lavarino Coordinator of the Translational Genomic Research Group of the SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital Research Institute (IRSJD)

“By means of fortnightly telemedicine sessions, specialists from SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital give their point of view on the cases being treated by our colleagues in Hospital King Faisal de Kigali (Ruanda) and we provide them with the tools that we possess in Barcelona. The relationship with the team, which is comprised of good doctors, is magnificent. ”
