Satisfaction. That word perfectly sums up what the members of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) feel about the recent inauguration of Association’s new headquarters on Calle Cristo de los Milagros. The ceremony was attended by the highest representative of the organization in Salamanca, Ángel Losada, who was accompanied by the National President of the AECC, Ramón Reyes, as well as the authorities from the town, the province, and the Junta de Castilla y León. In addition, the representatives of different groups that collaborate with the association, were present. Researchers also attended the event, among them those of us who are part of the technical committee, formed almost two years ago, to support the provincial committee. Whenever they require assistance, I will be there for them.
This new space will improve the support provided to thousands of cancer patients and their families. Ángel Losada said: “we wish to help and provide support to all those committed to making sure that cancer does not interfere with anyone’s life. Evidently, there are many factors involved in providing support; we work on three fronts: prevention, research and support for patients and their families, and in this regard, it is clear that an accessible space, a space where the different professionals and volunteers can work collectively, is essential”, I agree with his words and thank the National President, Ramón Reyes, who highlighted the exemplary structure of Salamanca, with an outstanding research ecosystem. We must applaud the high level of cancer researchers at this hospital, its research center, and the University of Salamanca who, as Reyes reminded us, are working in Salamanca” at the forefront of cutting-edge international cancer projects”.
Through the projects developed at the AIR Institute and BISITE, we are doing our bit in artificial intelligence and are already working on developments that can help at the biomedical level. One example is the advanced analysis of biomedical signals and the analysis of genomic data, but also the classification of medical images to identify and classify blood cells. AI can also be of great use in the medical field.
