Researchers from the University of Granada are participating in a project that will make it possible to manufacture facemasks made of ‘non-woven’ textiles that offer more effective protection against SARS-CoV-2.
The study, published recently in the prestigious journal Science Advances, and in which researchers from the University of Granada participated, shows that the mitochondria electron transport chain adjusts its energy efficiency to adapt to the body’s needs. This metabolic adaptation mechanism explains mitochondria’s ability to modulate to stressful situations, such as those produced by intense physical exercise.
The mapping exercise was carried out on 12,571 scientific papers published between 1970 and 2020. The last four months saw 1,009 publications, marking a historic high in this field of research.
An international team of scientists, of which the University of Granada is a member, has developed a new nanoparticle-based artificial retina prosthesis that can be injected into the eye. Thanks to this important scientific finding, published recently in the prestigious journal Nature Nanotechnology, blind rats had their vision restored for 8 months without the need for surgery.
The UGR Induction Sessions for the 2020-2021 academic year, organised by the Vice-Rectorate for Student Services and Employability at the University of Granada, will be held online on 7 October 2020.
The Plan for the Adaptation of Teaching and Learning in the Academic Year 2020-21 to the Health Measures deriving from the Covid-19 Pandemic is now available in English. It covers the adaptation of teaching, learning and assessment; work placements, internationalization and mobility programmes; undergraduate and master's dissertations; research activities; doctoral theses defences; the academic calendar; quality assurance systems; and measures and funding to support the implementation of this Plan.
The second application period for UGR master’s degrees is now open and will run from 15 June to 16 July 2020. In the 2020-2021 academic year, the University of Granada will offer over 100 master’s degrees, including 7 fully online degrees, 10 blended learning programmes, 9 international double degrees, 4 Erasmus Mundus programmes, 5 bilingual programmes (Spanish-English) and 3 taught completely in English.
The Virtual Open Days will offer prospective students comprehensive information on undergraduate degrees and admissions at the University of Granada.
The University of Granada has published a series of guidelines, which are available in English and Spanish, to ensure that both our students and teaching staff are aware of the steps involved in the different types of remote assessment exercises employed at our University.
