A study led by CREAF and with the involvement of the UAB demonstrates that new forests growing in farmlands abandoned during the rural exodus, are capable of capturing more CO2 from the environment.
A study by ICTA-UAB published this week in the scientific journal PNAS points to growth as a key element which explains how all living beings function. According to the research, many of the most important characteristics of life are governed by universal laws.
The ICN2 is expanding its collaboration with the global network of Microsoft Quantum Labs in furtherance of the goal of developing a scalable quantum computer - a vastly more powerful informatics tool based on radically different physics principles. The ICN2 laboratories will provide atomic-scale measurements, analysis, and modelling of new materials.
The ClearFarm project will design a sensor-based platform capable of informing on the state of welfare of farm animals. It will thus help producers optimise the production process and consumers have more information on the origins of these animal products.
A UAB project to advance in the search for an effective therapy for Parkinson's disease has been chosen by the crowdfunding platform Precipita. Funding will go towards further studies of the SynuClean-D molecule, which has already proven to be efficient in stopping and reverting the neurodegeneration causing this disease in cell cultures and a simple animal model.
CERTA recently put into practice the first pilot and demonstration plant for the packaging of liquid foods treated with ultra high pressure homogenization (UHPH). This technology, the result of the university research, makes it possible to offer a more stable preservation of juices, dairy products wines and broth in cartons at room temperature and without using additives.
This article reflects on what use is given to drugs and considers what strategies could be used to avoid their serious adverse reactions. Read more
