New support for our scientific project about a rare type of childhood leukaemia

Raul Torres is a member of one of our research groups in our Campus Clínic-UB of the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute. He just received a support of the "Lady Tata Memorial Trust" to continue his project in our center. We want to know a little more about him and his work ...

Raúl Torres is 36 years old and is from Madrid. He loves music, sport, cinema and handicrafts and is a member of one of the research teams at the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute's University of Barcelona Hospital Clínic Campus.

He is a researcher specialised in the study of DNA, cell biology and genome engineering, and describes himself as being friendly, hard working and having a keen sense of curiosity and perseverance. He has just been awarded financial support by the Lady Tata Memorial Trust to continue with his project at our centre. Today we wanted to get to know a little more about him and his work.

- You have recently been awarded a considerable amount of funding to continue with your project for another year. What do you think about that? How do you feel?

The fact is that it is great recognition not just for me but for all the work that is being done in the laboratory of Dr. Pablo Menéndez. It is a very promising line of research and with it we hope, in the future, to be able to elucidate key questions concerning the oncogenic processes involved in infantile leukaemia and be able to transfer this knowledge, with great caution and in the medium to long term, to clinical treatment. Obviously I am very happy and very pleased to have received this support.
