Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) is an international cancer research centre of excellence with the mission of fostering translation of scientific breakthroughs into novel and more effective ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
- Basic Research – As the main activity of the CNIO, basic research is carried out in two Research Programmes: Molecular Oncology and Structural Biology. At least three groups of the Molecular Oncology Programme are also envolved developing projects related with SARS-COV-2, such as 1) SARS-COV-2 diagnostic test by phi 29 polymerase amplification, aimed to develop novel detection kit (COVI-PHI) for the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2 infection. 2) Study of pulmonary fibrosis associated to OVID-19 infection, which is one of the most important sequels of the disease 3) Systematic evaluation of ACE2 modulation by drugs approved for medical use.
Research proposals in basic research should be focused on generating knowledge and discoveries that can advance the fields of molecular oncology, structural biology and biocomputing.
