Scientists have used microgels for the first time, developed using gold spheres, in order to better the treatment of breast cancer. Investigators at the universities of Granada and Malaga have managed to transport an antitumor drug in these hollow microcapsules and have successfully tested this on cultures of tumour cells.
Researchers from the University of Málaga have designed the first European soil biodiversity digital map. The information it contains can be useful when making decisions about the soil by helping to manage it in a sustainable way and to optimize its use. It can be consulted on the site of the European Environment Agency.
Researchers from the University of Malaga have developed a 3D simulator to test olfactory robots that detect gas leaks. They recreate closed space conditions where they can check if the robotic devices work well before they are used in the field.
Researchers at the University of Malaga have, for the first time, measured lexical richness and vocabulary in oral expression in Spanish. This has been possible thanks to the design of an algorithm guaranteeing very reliable results. One of the conclusions they have reached is that, when we speak, we don’t use more than 2,500 words.
