UGR scientists study the role of Mediterranean reservoirs as producers of greenhouse gases

A team of scientists from the Department of Ecology at the University of Granada (UGR) has conducted the first-ever study of the carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions of 12 reservoirs located in Granada, Jaén, and Córdoba in Andalusia, Southern Spain. Their study demonstrated that reservoirs are important producers of greenhouse gases, contributing to the radiative forcing of aquatic ecosystems.

Spanish scientists explain how the mitochondrion regulates energy production

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.

Scientists restore the vision of blind rats for 8 months thanks to artificial retina

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.
