Celifast Project receives the second prize in the Ideas Generation Program
Monday, 02 December 2013
The team composed of researchers María Isabel Pividori, Ona Illa and Jean-Didier Maréchal from the Chemistry Dept. and Jofre Ferrer from IBB have been awarded the second place in the Ideas Generation program from the PRUAB.

Awarded with 1500€, the Celifast project proposes the development of  a Point-of-Care biosensor for the rapid diagnosis of Celiac Disease using a drop of blood. The baseline technology has already been tested using clinical samples and has shown a sensitivity of 100%. Its great advantage is giving real time results, thus becoming a faster and less invasive alternative to the currently available tests for gluten intolerance. It is hoped that the diagnostic’s Point-of-Care approach will have a positive impact – specially for the youngest patients – in reducing the future risk of complications due to a late diagnosis.

On Tuesday 13 November, during a ceremony that took place at the PRBB, La Marató de TV3 has awarded over 11 million Euros to fund 42 cancer research projects (19 individual and 23 coordinated proposals). It is the biggest investment done in research projects in the history of the Marato’s programme. Three of the proposals that have been selected to be funded over three years (one individual and two coordinated projects) come from IBB researchers.
