Assumpció Malgosa

Assumpció Malgosa

She works in the study of human remains of both archaeological and current contexts, so the field of research is both physical and forensic anthropology. The studies she performs are very holistic and range from the osteological description to molecular studies (DNA), including paleodemography, paleopathology or paleodiet; all this to reconstruct the lives of individuals and the population from their remains, mainly skeletal. In the forensic field, the analyzes are directed at the identification.

 

Keywords: anthropology, skeletal remains, ancient DNA, paleodiet, paleopathology, diseases, antiquity, forensic anthropology, forensic DNA, identification

Ernest Marco

Ernest Marco Urrea

He is a member of the Biodegradation of Industrial Contaminants and Waste Valorization Group. His main research interest is the biological treatment of soils and groundwaters contaminated with chlorinated compounds. His research focuses on the application of techniques to assess the biodetoxification potential of contaminated groundwaters ; the understanding of the physiology, biochemistry and genomics of organohalide-respiring bacteria; and the application of this knowledge to implement projects to remediate groundwaters contaminated with chlorinated compounds in collaboration with different remediation companies.

Jean Didier

Jean-Didier Maréchal

Professor Maréchal's field of expertise is the development and application of molecular modeling methods. Its main lines of research are located in the interface between chemistry, biology and materials science (eg. nanomolecules) and include the design of new (bio) catalysts and drug design. One of the singularities of its group is to work intensively with biosystems that mediated its activity thanks to transition metals. His team has created different software recently as a new molecular design program called GaudiMM and a free and extensive platform for Multiscale computing called Tangram.

Joaquim Martí

Joaquim Martí Clua

His research interest has focused on the generation, differentiation and neuronal death during the development of the central nervous system. The goal of his research group is to determine how several rodent spontaneous mutations alters the normal growth of encephalic regions. They also analyze the effect of neurotoxic agents exposure during the prenatal and perinatal life. Highlight his interest for the histological characterization of animal models of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. From a methodological point of view, he works on cytochemical and immunocytochemical procedures. The use of tritiated thymidine autoradiography and electron microscopic are extensive.
