We tell you all the news in the field of science.
A research team from the University of Jaén has developed a chemical compound that eliminates pathogenic micro-organisms from any type of utensil and prevents them from evolving and generating resistance. This not only stops real-time infections, but also prevents the future development of more aggressive bacterial strains. In addition, the new formula does not contain harmful agents for the environment.Read more
A research team from the University of Malaga creates a new model of prosthesis, coated with branching macromolecules which is more compatible with the body and more durable. Experimental results suggest the novel prosthetic surface may considerably improve the existing prosthesis, making them adhere better and be more resistant.Read more
A research team from the Institute of Materials Science of Seville (a CSIC -Spanish National Research Council- and University of Seville joint centre) has designed a fluid that works like a luminous ink to obtain very sharp images of damaged tissues, organs and cartilages in diagnostic tests. This new compound, still in the laboratory phase, reduces adverse effects on the human body because it allows lower amounts to be injected and the dose to be targeted only at the affected area.Read more
A research team from the universities of Seville and Almeria applies a mathematical system to anticipate the consequences of a seismic catastrophe in order to have valid data for decision-making in urban planning. This tool may also be used for risk and climate change management, as well as for floods and other natural disasters.Read more
A research team from the universities of Seville and Cadiz has developed NeuroPod, an automaton that simulates the activity of a six-legged insect. The model, which walks, trots and runs, uses efficient and cost effective materials. It could therefore pave the way for the creation of prostheses or structures for the rehabilitation of spinal cord injuries at a reduced cost compared with those currently in use.
