A lesser known work in Goya’s Black Paintings, focusing on the aging and death of a C. elegans nematode

Research Areas

  • The physiology mediating dietary, environmental, and neuroendocrine interventions influence on aging rates
  • Survival analysis and competing risk models
  • Complex systems analysis and reliability theory
  • High-throughput imaging ( The lifespan machine )

Research Environment

Our group is a member of the Systems Biology programme at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), giving us excellent colleagues and access to all of the CRG’s world-class core facilities.

The city of Barcelona is a technical and biomedical hub with many research institutes, the IRB, the photonics institute, the Barcelona Supercomputing Center, as well as several universities including the UPF , UB, and the UAB and a small but lively biomedical startup ecosystem. Barcelona also has a thriving makers scene, which is great for the members of our group building custom high-throughput imaging apparatus.

The CRG itself occupies the fifth and sixth floors of the biomedical research building PRBB, located on the beach a short walk from the heart of downtown Barcelona.
