Raúl Zamora Ros

Private foundation of the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute and of the Catalan Institute of Oncology

Raúl Zamora Ros is part of the team of researchers from the private foundation Bellvitge Biomedical Research institute (IDIBELL). He received this award for his research work in the field of clinical research, and in particular for his research work “Dietary polyphenols and their effects on obesity markers”, which assesses the association between exposure to polyphenols and obesity markers, as well as their effect on health parameters and weight loss during a slimming treatment.

 

 

 

Salvador Aznar Benitah

Catalan Institute of Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA) and Biomedical Research Institute of Barcelona (IRB Barcelona)

Salvador Aznar Benitah, from the Catalan Institute of Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA) and the Biomedical Research Institute of Barcelona (IRB Barcelona), was chosen for his extensive work in the field of basic research, and in particular for his research on the “Impact of dietary fatty acids on metastasis-initiating cells”. This project aims to delve into recent discoveries on metastasis-initiating cells with high levels of the fatty acid receptor CD36. The research team hopes to obtain essential information on the mechanisms of metastasis and how they are influenced by diet. This point is important since Western diets have a large intake of fatty acids, and metastasis is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths.
