Research centres : Instituto de Investigaciones Biomédicas August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS). Barcelona.

Gustavo Egea Guri

Professor of Cellular Biology in the Medical Faculty of the University of Barcelona, and a research member of the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS) and the Institute of Nanosciences and Nanotechnology (IN2UB) of the University of Barcelona. Spokesman and treasurer of the Spanish Cellular Biology Society (SEBC).

In his scientific career he has studied the mechanism of acetylcholine liberation, the subcellular compartmentation of protein glycosylation processes in tumour cells, and the molecular mechanisms determining the architecture of Golgi's apparatus and how it interacts with the actin cytoskeleton in eukaryote cells. Recently he commenced a new line of research into the pathophysiology of Marfan's syndrome, centring on the traffic of receptors for TGF‑b and the assembly of the extracellular matrix in vascular smooth muscle cells from the aorta of murine models and patients affected by Marfan's syndrome.

He was awarded the Prize for Young University Researcher (2002) and the August Pi i Sunyer Prize (2010) by the Catalonia Regional Government. He has worked in several national and international centres, such as the Biozentrum of the University of Basel (1987-88), the Severo Ochoa Molecular Biology Centre (Madrid, 1993), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (Heidelberg, 2001), the Mario Negri Sud Institute (Chieti, 1998) and the Curie Institute (Paris, 2009). His teaching activity centres on Histology and Microscopic Organography in the degrees of Medicine and Biomedical Engineering, and in several master's degrees in the University of Barcelona.
