Juan Nácher: ’It has been proved that cannabis is a risk factor for the development of schizophrenia’
Juan Nácher Roselló, full professor of Cellular Biology at the University of Valencia (UV), is one of the main researchers of the Spanish Network for Cooperative Study in Mental Health (CIBERSAM), as well as a researcher at the University Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (BIOTECMED) of the academic institution. Since COVID-19, mental illnesses have increased exponentially. In this interview, the expert deals with these disorders from a biological perspective and explains their relationship with neuronal plasticity and inhibitory neurons.
The international scientific collaborations operating the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) has just announced the first observation of the simultaneous production of four top quarks in the same week. The Institute of Corpuscular Physics (IFIC, UV-CSIC) has a prominent role in this finding, considered key to searching for new particles beyond the Standard Model.
A study co-led by Asbel Bohigues, a professor at the University of Valencia (UV), explains that holding opinions in favour of equality (opposed to sexist ones), recognising that gender inequality is a problem and supporting State action to encourage gender equality are three different dimensions within attitudes towards gender equality, and they are not mutually exclusive.
A research group from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) has participated in the development of a new technique based on medical imaging which makes it possible to non-invasively estimate the location of a tumour in the surgical position required for breast cancer surgery.
The IFIC develops a technology to better visualise the distribution of radiopharmaceuticals in the patient’s body
A team from the Institute of Corpuscular Physics (IFIC/UV-CSIC) is developing a photon detection and imaging system that will allow visualising, during a medical treatment, the distribution of the radiopharmaceutical in the patient's body. This technology verifies the final destination of the drug and allows a better estimate of the radiation dose received by both the tumour itself and the vital organs.
