The research activity financed by the Foundation encourages cross-sectional and translational research, as is shown by the increasing investment in basic and clinical research projects, and in co-ordinated projects, which involve a network of different institutions.
Every two years since 2006, the Fundació La Marató de TV3 has issued a public call for proposals for diseases with the aim of involving civil society in choosing the theme of the programme. The call is open to associations representing patients or their families, as well as research bodies, scientific societies and professionals in the health field that are in the Register of Legal Associations of the Department of Justice of the Catalan government.
