The R&D programs of BIOFISIKA are grouped in two main Research Lines and five Research Sublines. This rational combination of independent group abilities and skills in supplementary fields contributes to reduce scientific dispersion and undertake more ambitious and complex research projects. The distribution of the research groups in the different Research Lines respond to the will of BIOFISIKA to create a unique Research and Training program able to exploit all the singularities present in the Center, fostering the complementarities and synergies of the different groups.

Mitochondrial Membranes, Apoptosis and Cancer

Gorka Basañez

During apoptosis, mitochondrial membranes undergo dramatic changes in permeability and morphology. The principal components involved in these processes are the BCL-2 family of proteins, with assistance from an increasing number of mitochondrial protein/lipid effectors. Despite the remarkable ...
