EMBL Barcelona is a new research unit focusing on Tissue Biology and Disease Modelling. We aim to go beyond the molecular and cellular scale, integrating gene circuits with a tissue-level quantitative understanding of tissues and organs, both healthy and diseased. The Bernabeu group recently joined EMBL Barcelona. The main goal of the lab is to understand blood-brain barrier (BBB) organization and function, in health and disease. To this end, we will build 3D in vitro vascular models that recapitulate BBB structure. We will use this model to study vascular dysfunction in cerebral malaria. We aim to identify the parasite and host factors that trigger brain vascular damage, and understand the molecular mechanisms of BBB disruption. Our interdisciplinary team has strong collaborations with malaria research sites in endemic countries. The final goal of the team is to validate results obtained in in vitro studies in blood and tissue samples from cerebral malaria patients.

In addition to widely used mouse/human stem cells, we also utilize stem cells of unconventional model organisms to study the diversity of developmental processes and tissue functions among species. We have recently started a new collaboration project with Barcelona Zoo, Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE) and Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG) to establish new induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines from diverse animal species.Thus, we are looking for a specialist researcher who can establish iPSC lines from diverse animal species.
