These devices will help treat patients affected by COVID-19. It is believed that between 3 and 7% of infected people will require mechanical ventilation systems. Read More
Ernestina Badal, professor at the Department of Prehistory, Archeology and Ancient History at the University of Valencia, has participated in research published today in the prestigious journal Science that confirms that fishing and shellfishing contributed significantly to the subsistence economy of European Neanderthals about 100,000 years ago. The work, in the Portuguese cave of Figueira Brava, prooves that the human relationship with the sea and the subsequent appearance of a symbolic material culture began earlier than previously believed.

The genomic analysis has been carried out by the Joint Unit on Infection and Public Health of the University of Valencia and the Foundation for the Promotion of Health and Biomedical Research of the Valencian Community Fisabio, the Research Group in Molecular Epidemiology, both led by Fernando González Candelas, Professor of Genetics and researcher at the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2SysBio) of the University of Valencia and CSIC, and the Fisabio Sequencing and Bioinformatics Service coordinated by Giuseppe d’Auria and Llúcia Martínez.
It has been developed by researchers from UPV and INCLIVA. Among its advantages, it is very simple for patients to use, allows better monitoring of their progress and helps to adjust the medication more precisely. Read More
The GREAT research group has analysed the digital competence of students of Early Childhood and Primary Education.
The research group “Ensenyament, aprenentatge i tecnologia” [Teaching, learning and technology] (GREAT) of the Universitat Jaume I has designed and implemented a training process in educational robotics to reduce the gender gap in computational thinking of the students of Early Childhood and Primary Education. The conclusions of this UJI research on digital competence have been published in the Journal of Information Technology Education: Innovations in Practice. Read More
The study concludes that a combination of Artificial Intelligence algorithms and the interpretations of radiologists could make it so that, in the USA alone, half a million women do not have to undergo unnecessary diagnostic tests every year. Read More
