Incoherent Light Sources for Speckle Reduction in Double Pass Ocular Imaging

Donatus Halpaap

The double pass technique is a well-established method to evaluate the optical quality of a patient’s eye, being capable of determining its aberrations as well as scattering. It is based on imaging a point source onto the retina, where the light is reflected and recorded by a camera after its second pass through the ocular media. For double pass imaging, …

Neurociència, Neuropsicologia i Aprenentatge

Marta Molins Sauri

Actualment la neurociència és un dels temes amb més auge arreu del món. Cada cop més, en un món ple de canvis constants, està guanyant terreny. El neuromàrketing, neuroeconomia, neuroarquitectura, neurodidàctica… fins a arribar a la neuroeducació. La recerca sobre com es desenvolupa i com aprèn el cervell és quelcom amb un potencial increïble per tenir un profund impacte en …

Chiral Magnets Derived from Schiff Bases.

Júlia Mayans Ayats

Research in coordination chemistry clusters of paramagnetic 3d or 4f cations has been a key field in the search of Single-Molecule-Magnet (SMM) response. Single Molecule Magnets are systems where it is possible to obtain permanent magnetization. Contrary to conventional bulk magnets, 3D  magnetic order in not necessary, and the phenomenon has a  purely molecular origin.  Single Molecule magnets are interesting …

Cdc5 kinase regulation and implication in FEAR network

Yolanda Moyano Rodríguez

Dividing cells require of a strict regulation of cell cycle in order to complete it correctly and obtain two healthy daughter cells genetically identical. Mitosis is a highly conserved and regulated process in eukaryotes. Mitosis is divided in four different phases: prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. My research project is focused in mitotic exit regulation, concretely the mechanisms that ensure …

Study of the capability of rRNA to be a marker of viable wine yeast cells

Mercè Sunyer Figueres

Cells in Viable But Not Culturable (VBNC) cell state do not have the capacity of growing, but can be metabolic active. Some wine yeasts in VBNC state have an important role during alcoholic fermentation, affecting the quality of final wine, thus it is important to detect and quantify them as a part of viable cells. VBNC state difficulties the discernment …

La petja d’Irene Polo 75 anys després

Mar Casas Honrado

Irene Polo Roig (Barcelona, 1909–Buenos Aires, 1942) fou una de les primeres periodistes de la història de Catalunya que omplí les pàgines de les principals capçaleres barcelonines a la dècada dels 30 del segle XX i que, en canvi, per la seva condició d’exiliada i, sobretot, de dona, va caure en l’oblit. En el darrer tram de la seva curta …

Ageostrophic motions in the Brasil-Malvinas confluence region

Marta Masdeu Navarro

Any ocean perturbation tends towards an equilibrium situation where the vertical balance is hydrostatic and the dominant horizontal forces are pressure gradients and Coriolis force, the so called geostrophic balance. Any motion that represents a desviation from this balance is named ageostrophic. At spatial and temporal scales of order 10-100 km (mesoscale) and longer, these desviations are small except within …

Deployable Architecture. Deployable arches based on regular polygon geometry.

Natalia Torres Londoño

This research discusses a deployable-arch-structure design that is built using articulated bars, commonly called a scissor-system, and is based on the regular polygon geometry. The deployed-arch shape can be determined by inscribing regular polygon geometry in a circle. It is defined by the: a. number of bars required, b. position of the pivots, c. pivot-point distances, d. bar length, and …

Influencia de las prácticas de liderazgo pedagógico en las prácticas pedagógicas docentes: caso en Chile de las Unidades Técnicas Pedagógicas

Guilllermo Rodríguez Molina

Los liderazgos en las organizaciones son sin duda un objeto de estudio que atrae por las múltiples áreas en las cuales se enfoca el fenómeno a estudiar. Además, se presenta como un desafío ya que se deben buscar aquellas lagunas que las diversas investigaciones y evidencia empírica han dejado. Durante años se ha dicho que los buenos liderazgos escolares son …

Biochemical and evolutionary characterization of the GNA gene family in Apicomplexa

Marta Cova

Glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchors represent one of the major carbohydrate modifications described in apicomplexan parasites such as Plasmodium and Cryptosporidium. Due to their important roles for the survival and pathogenicity of these organisms, GPI biosynthesis is a potential target to tackle relevant clinical and veterinarian infections caused by apicomplexan parasites. The generation of the UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc) precursor, needed to feed GPI …
