Authors suggest the risk-benefit balance of vaccination is not as clear in the case of minors, as the disease is usually mild or asymptomatic in this group of the population. Read More
The University of Valencia and the Biotechvana company of its Science Park have participated in the development and validation of a new pandemic simulator that helps predict their evolution in different epidemiological scenarios. The system, called LOIMOS, has been developed in the context of COVID-19 and its results are limited to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, although they could be applied to the study of other pandemics. The work is published in journal microLife.
A study by the University of Valencia (UV) shows the little representation that female doctors and nurses have had in cartoons on COVID-19 which depicted people from the health field. The work, carried out by Martí Domínguez and Lucía Sapiña, from the research group Two Cultures Observatory of the academic institution, also highlights the stereotypical interpretation of the medical and nursing profession.
The School of Engineering of the University of Valencia (ETSE-UV) led a study of four European scientific institutions which verified that during the first wave of COVID-19, women around the world saw their research diminished, especially in the 25 to 45 age group. Published today, Wednesday, in journal Plos ONE, the largest study to date on scientific productivity analysed 2,329 journals on the Elsevier platform, with more than four and a half million articles from more than five million researchers.
The affordable technology created at the Biomaterials and Bioengineering Laboratory of the UCV can also be used in glasses, helmets, plastics masks or the screens used in cars and counters. Read More
The most complete studies on the variants of the coronavirus that dominated the first waves in Spain have just been published in Nature Genetics. The study was carried out by the SeqCOVID consortium, which includes more than 50 Spanish institutions led by the University of Valencia, the Institute of Biomedicine of Valencia (IBV, CSIC) and the Fisabio Foundation.
Researchers at the Universitat Jaume I in Castellón have found that emotional intelligence played a significant role in the impact of the stress generated by the pandemic on work performance. Specifically, the study shows that those with greater emotional intelligence have been able to minimise the influence of the epidemiological situation and have shown better levels of job performance and less counterproductive work behaviours.
