The UAB Research Park has brought over 80 people in the presentation of the Bioindustrial Community for Bioeconomics (BBCAT), a proposal to promote innovative projects which can improve the efficiency, competitiveness and sustainability of bioproductive processes.
The UAB received €34.4M from the Horizon 2020 programme for 73 projects in the 2014-2017 period. This data makes it third in funding for Spanish universities, following the technical universities of Catalonia (UPC) and Madrid (UPM).
The device contains living cells and mimics the structure and physiological conditions of the blood–retinal barrier; it also enables testing molecules in vitro and studying diseases such as diabetic retinopathy.
Researchers at the UAB, in collaboration with Purdue University (USA), have shown that heat flow behaves similarly to a viscous fluid when studied at nanoscale.
