Institute presentation

At the CNIO, world-class basic and translational scientists are working on closely related projects focussing on stem cell biology, stem cell aging, mouse transgenesis, and epithelial cancers. Importantly, a total of five groups at CNIO are working on pancreatic cancer ranging all the way from basic science to clinical investigations. The CNIO has unrestricted access to a nation-wide tumour bank as well as fresh human samples.

The state-of-the-art CNIO building provides a superb infrastructure and outstanding networking capabilities. The animal facility within the CNIO is certainly one of the best in Europe and provides ample space and expertise to establish breeding colonies as well as generation of new genetically modified mouse strains necessary for the proposed project. Therefore, the CNIO harbours a very stimulating environment to successfully seed and advance research activities from basic science to clinical investigations.

The Stem Cell & Cancer Group (Christopher Heeschen)

The Stem Cell & Cancer Group is integrated into the most recently established Clinical Research Program, which will ensure timely clinical translation of our findings.

The Epithelial Carcinogenesis Group (Paco Real)

The Epithelial Carcinogenesis Group, within the Molecular Pathology Programme, works on the study of the cell biology of pancreatic and bladder cancer and aims to apply basic knowledge at the clinical level.
