Two million euros of the Marató will go to researchers at PRBB
More than two million euros, out of the seven million collected by the Marató de TV3, will go to research projects from the centres at the PRBB, some of them in collaboration with other centres, such as the CSIC and the CNIC.
159 groups from all over Catalonia have applied for the grants of the Fundació “La Marató de TV3”, which this year has given the money collected from particular individuals, entities or companies to the study of cardiovascular diseases. From these projects, only 26 were selected, and 6 of them are from researchers at the PRBB.
The projects that will receive funding– between 200,000 and 500,000€ each – are directed by Roberto Elosua (IMIM-Hospital del Mar), Cristina López (CEXS-UPF), Miguel Valverde (CEXS-UPF) and Mariano Senti (IMIM-Hospital del Mar ), James Sharpe (CRG), Antonio García de Herreros (IMIM-Hospital del Mar) and Jaume Marrugat (IMIM-Hospital del Mar) and Nino Kuenzli (CREAL).
