The GLAM project, of which IBEC’s Biomimetics for Systems for Cell Engineering group leader Elena Martínez is a partner, is supporting the 3rd Festa StandupPaddle (SUP) in aid of leukemia research in Barcelona on 24th April.
Via the crowdfunding platform “Mi grano de Arena” (My grain of sand), GLAM is collecting donations in for the event, which will involve stand up paddle boarding races, family activities, and much more. All donations made on the website and 75% of the money collected on the day will be forwarded to the Josep Carreras Foundation, a Barcelona-based organisation aiming to make leukaemia a 100% curable disease.
The GLAM project, funded by H2020, aims to design and develop a new diagnostic tool to detect biomarkers from biofluids obtained in a non-invasive manner, focusing on urine and genitourinary cancers. It is coordinated by Leitat and involves partners from Spain, the Netherlands, Israel, Belgium, Serbia and the UK.
