Informative talks: The informative talks ‘Science and beers’ will deal with the yeast cell cycle, telomerase, CO₂ due to the use of inhalers, quantum computing and phenology.
Main Event ERN 2023 -UPV-UV-Workshop-” Science and beers”
The two public universities of the city of Valencia, the UV and the UPV, will jointly celebrate the central event of the ERN in a public space. The researchers of both universities will interact with citizens through the following:
- Informative talks: The informative talks ‘Science and beers’ will deal with the yeast cell cycle, telomerase, CO₂ due to the use of inhalers, quantum computing and phenology.
Cristina Ros, predoctoral researcher in the Cell Cycle Regulation in Eukaryotes group at the Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (BIOTECMED) of the UV, will give the talk “Yeast: from the cane to the laboratory, deciphering the Cell Cycle”, at the which will explain the mechanisms of regulation of the entry point of the cell cycle, which his doctoral thesis investigates and its importance to guarantee the integrity of the genome and avoid diseases such as cancer.
Carlos Romá Mateo (INCLIVA Cellular and Organic Physiopathology of Oxidative Stress Research Group) will address in his speech “Telomerase and the turn of the molecular ham” “how research in the field of aging has contributed like few others to making us depressed knowing to the most intimate details caused by the ravages of age”. In his talk, he will discuss María Blasco’s research, “which gave us a ray of hope by discovering the mysteries of telomerase and its effect on aging and cancer, no less”.
The talk by José Baeza (Fisabio) is “Sustainable healthcare: how to reduce CO₂ emissions with a simple gesture” and in it he will present the conclusions of the study, which highlight that the use of a pressurised inhaler emits 33 times more CO2 (a gas greenhouse effect) than a dry powder-based inhaler, within an initiative to reduce CO2 emissions that are emitted as a result of the use of inhalers for pharmacological treatments, which are prescribed to patients with respiratory pathologies.
Israel Griol Barres, StartUPV responsible technician and associate professor of the Department of Business Organisation: “Detecting signs of the future through quantum computing”. His research has consisted of creating a system capable of predicting major future changes in a sector, by detecting small signs or current weak signals. Although most similar systems use structured data to make these predictions, the proposed system uses natural language processing from documentary sources such as scientific, journalistic and social media articles. On the other hand, quantum computing represents a new paradigm.
Francesco de Bello, CSIC researcher at CIDE (Centre for Desertification Research), will explain the keys to deciphering what is happening with plants and flowers around the planet, which seem to lose their regular rhythm and advance in flowering. In his talk, “What is phenology? Deciphering the flower conspiracy”, an open app developed by its research team suitable for obtaining answers to these questions will be presented.
