The Royal European Academy of Doctors was created in 1914 and nineteen Nobel Prize winners are part of it. It is dedicated to research and dissemination of knowledge with the aim of contributing to the cultural, scientific, economic and social development of the local community and the European Union. Its scientific research work is interdisciplinary and its Academics are chosen from among the most outstanding researchers in areas as diverse as Law and Economics, Medicine and Psychology, Physics and Engineering, or Geography and Anthropology.
The RAED has chosen Dr. Manel Esteller as a Member for his exceptional contributions to Biomedical Sciences, especially for his findings in epigenetics, particularly in cancer, with discoveries that have revealed the mechanisms of this pathology, as well as making possible new diagnostic tests and the approval of new drugs for their treatment.
The official admission ceremony as an Academic will take place this Thursday, September 28th, at 6:30 p.m. in the Assembly hall of the Fomento del Trabajo building, Via Laietana, 32 principal, in Barcelona in an event open to the public. Dr. Esteller's speech will be titled "A Personal View of Epigenetics: From Biology to Medical Application" and will end with a glossary by Dr. Carol Moreno from the Department of Hematology at the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau.
