‘BiSC’ study (Barcelona Life Study Cohort)

In collaboration with ISGlobal and the Hospital de Sant Pau, we participated in the ‘BiSC’ study that aims to understand the effect of air pollution on placental function and the growth, cardiovascular and brain development of the fetus.

In vitro and in vivo evaluation of neuroprotective therapies in an intrauterine growth restriction animal model.

The main objective of this project is to characterize the structural injury secondary to intrauterine growth restriction and to describe potential neuroprotective therapies. For this, both studies will be evaluated at two levels. In a first level, basic histological techniques will be used. At a second level, a neurosphere culture will be developed for the first time in intrauterine growth restriction as an in vitro model. The cultivation of neurospheres will help us to delve into the pathophysiological mechanisms derived from growth restriction and, at the same time, to clarify the neuroprotection mechanism of the tested therapies.
