This academic year, more than 2,600 new international students from over 70 countries will complete studies at the UGR, thanks to the our active participation in an extensive range of international mobility programmes.
A study conducted by researchers from the University of Granada (UGR) recommends spending more time standing to increase energy expenditure and combat the negative health effects of a sedentary lifestyle. The research has also quantified exactly how many extra calories we burn when we remain standing: 45 kilocalories more, per six-hour period, than when lying or sitting.

A study conducted by researchers from the University of Granada (UGR) has found that, in contrast to scientific thinking to date, higher levels of physical activity are not linked to a greater volume or activity of brown adipose tissue (BAT). BAT is a thermogenic organ that burns glucose and fats, releasing the energy that is produced in the form of heat.
An international team of scientists demonstrates that polyacrylate hydrogels create the support and microenvironment necessary for the growth and maintenance of cartilage cells (chondrocytes), and could be optimal candidates for use in clinical practice. The results have been published in the prestigious journal Acta Biomaterialia.

An international team of scientists, including researchers from the University of Granada and the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC), has identified five new rapidly-oscillating Ap (roAp) stars. Two of these stars are of particular interest: one of them is cooler than the norm, and the other is the fastest–pulsating roAp star discovered to date: it completes an oscillation every 4.7 minutes.
