Environment - May 25

The University of Valencia and the Andean Condor Foundation (Quito, Ecuador) will work together to improve the conservation of biodiversity in Ecuador, a country where almost 40% of vertebrate species are in some category of threat. Both organizations have signed a strategic collaboration agreement that seeks to optimize efforts for the management of natural resources in the Andean country.

Health - May 10

An international study coordinated by the MELIS-UPF researchers Andreas Meyerhans and Juana Díez has identified Schlafen 12, a new HIV restriction factor that could pave the way for new strategies for curing the infection.

The Neurobiology of Sensory Systems group at the MELIS-UPF will train one of its doctoral candidates contributing their expertise in human inner ear organoids and genetic alterations causing vestibular disorders.
