Center for Genomic Regulation

The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) is an international biomedical research institute of excellence whose mission is to discover and advance knowledge for the benefit of society, public health and economic prosperity. The CRG believes that the medicine of the future depends on the groundbreaking science of today. This requires an interdisciplinary scientific team focused on understanding the complexity of life from the genome to the cell to a whole organism and its interaction with the environment, offering an integrated view of genetic diseases. The CRG is a unique centre in Spain, based in an innovative organization research model. Group leaders at the CRG are recruited internationally and receive support from the centre to set up and run their groups. An external Scientific Advisory Board, made up of 12 world leaders in the different areas, evaluates them. The result of evaluations conditions the future of the CRG scientists, no matter whether they have open-ended or time-limited contracts. This ensures the mobility and the renewal of the workforce.

During our 2nd Community Meeting, around 80 EU-LIFE members presented main results of the 7 Working groups we have established, focusing on Grants, Science Communication, Translational Research, Technology Transfer, Training, IT and Indicators of Excellence. In addition to sharing best practice and benefiting from each other’s expertise and experience in all these domains, we have initiated several joint actions which were presented during the meeting.

This first EU-LIFE scientific workshop brought together basic scientists and clinicians from EU-LIFE institutes (and collaborators) to explore and discuss new directions in cancer biology by integrating clinical needs, new discoveries in cancer biology, omics technologies, drug discovery pipelines, and latest computational and modeling approaches. The workshop provided an opportunity to forge new scientific collaborations within EU-LIFE and found the basis for future joint activities and projects.
