The spin-off of the University of Valencia 2DMatch has just become Matteco, a company focused on the development of advanced materials for the production of green hydrogen and decarbonisation. The leap occurs thanks to the private investment of Zubi Labs, the business factory led by the Valencian Iker Marcaide, joined in this project by the researcher from the Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol) Gonzalo Abellán, both co-founders of the new entity.
The activity, within the framework of the Igualment Fest organised by the Valencia City Council to celebrate gender equality from an artistic, social and cultural perspective, promotes knowledge of the problem of resistant bacteria, as well as the use of phages as antimicrobial therapy. Pilar Domingo, main researcher of the Environmental and Biomedical Virology group at the University of Valencia, will teach the workshop, aimed at children.
The University of Valencia hosts the second edition of the Conference on Labour Culture in Research (J-CLI) on Tuesday, November 21, in the auditorium of the Science Park of the University of Valencia. The act seeks to create a critical social forum to raise awareness of the labour and rights aspects of the science and research sector, promote collective awareness and offer a channel for dissemination and interaction for scientists. The Scientific Culture and Innovation Unit of the University of Valencia collaborates in the activity.
The decline in cavities in children and adolescents is slowing down in Spain, and there aren-t signs of significant improvements in adults either. This is clear from the Oral Health Data Bank Insights (ohdbi), a system developed at the UV for displaying epidemiological data on oral health. The tool was presented by Professor José María Montiel-Company from the Department of Stomatology.
The International Conference -Land Uses to Make a City-, organised by the University of Valencia, has hosted the lectures on urban planning at the Faculty of Law on November 2 and 3. Some of the main conclusions have focused on the difficulties inherent in the intervention of the existing city, the high competitive conflict in the regulation of housing and the analysis of the tertiary uses of the soil among others.
University of Valencia researchers propose a theoretical model that explains the interior of a blazar, the most powerful source of radiation in the Universe.
The Translational Genomics Laboratory of the University of Valencia, directed by the Full Professor of Genetics Rubén Artero, is working on a mouse model that will allow the evaluation of drugs previously identified in Drosophila (vinegar fly) for limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMDD2), a rare genetic disease with no cure that causes progressive atrophy in the muscles of the waist and shoulders.
Researchers from the Institute of Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio), a joint centre of the University of Valencia and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), have studied the mechanism by which the body's antibodies target coxsackievirus B3, which causes serious heart inflammation in humans.
Mauro Stefanon, CIDEGENT researcher at the Department of Astronomy of the University of Valencia, has just been awarded a Consolidator Grant (ERC) to develop an ambitious project that will allow a significant leap in the understanding of the early formation of galaxies. His work, carried out with the help of the James Webb telescope, will provide new information about massive galaxies in the first billion years after the Big Bang.
Gustau Camps-Valls, Francisco J. Barba, Andrés Cervantes, Juli G. Pausas and Domingo Ribeiro Soriano, researchers at the University of Valencia (UV), appear in the Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) 2023, a ranking that, according to the provider of bibliometric data Clarivate Analytics, includes the world's scientific elite in terms of the number of citations of their research works.
UV Professors Esther Roca (Department of Comparative Education and History of Education) and Josep Ribes (Department of Chemical Engineering) are participating in a programme to pair science and policy representatives to work toward a more sustainable energy future.
A study recently published in the International Journal of Microbial Systematics and Evolutionary Microbiology reveals entrenched inequality between men and women in the field of Microbiology, based on an analysis of prokaryotic nomenclature from a gender perspective. The work shows the scarce relationship between feminine eponyms and the contribution of women in this field of biology over the years. The article is a collaboration between the University of Valencia, the CSIC and the Leibniz Institut of Germany.
The La Fe Health Research Institute of Valencia, in collaboration with the company Arthex Biotech, have organised the III Spanish Meeting on Oligonucleotide Therapeutics, SMOT III, at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Valencia on October 26 and 27. The event brings together experts, the cutting edge in research and entrepreneurship, and investment companies to foster collaboration and promote advances in the field of therapeutic oligonucleotides (ONs).
Researchers from the University of Valencia have revealed that social relations during the Copper Age in the Iberian Peninsula went from a first homogeneous phase of great connectivity to a more fragmented and regionalised stage.
From October 16 to 20, Valencia becomes the epicentre of two scientific events held at ADEIT and which bring together world-renowned experts in two interconnected fields: climate change and artificial intelligence. Organised by the University of Valencia, the events focus on the detection and attribution of extreme climate events, such as droughts, heat waves, floods, fires and hurricanes, as well as the application of artificial intelligence in this context.
