Orquesta de Cámara de la UGR
La Orquesta de Cámara de la UGR tiene su origen en el programa “Música de Cámara en la Universidad”, un ambicioso proyecto auspiciado por María José Osorio, titular del Vicerrectorado de Extensión Universitaria y por el catedrático de piano y Premio Nacional de Música Guillermo González. En una primera fase, en la que se contó con varios profesores invitados, se realizaron numerosos encuentros con alumnos que formaron grupos de cámara y ofrecieron conciertos públicos.

La orquesta fue constituida en mayo de 2007 e hizo su presentación oficial bajo la batuta de su director titular Gabriel Delgado el pasado 5 de Junio. El objetivo de la Orquesta de Cámara de la UGR es la difusión de la música clásica en la comunidad universitaria y en la ciudad de Granada, así como la representación de la Universidad allí donde vaya. Su programa de formación garantiza a sus integrantes una actividad académica y actuaciones públicas, cursos de formación específicos, becas de intercambio con otras formaciones orquestales y actividades formativas diversas, dentro y fuera de España. Se trata de una orquesta joven que está dando ahora sus primeros pasos.


Proyecto propone soterrar vías estación gana Premio ThyssenKrupp Arquitectura

– Proyecto propone soterrar vías estación gana Premio ThyssenKrupp Arquitectura

Un proyecto que plantea el soterramiento de las vías ferroviarias y la integración de la estación de trenes con su entorno, liderado por una licenciada en arquitectura en la Universidad de Granada, ha sido el ganador del Premio ThyssenKrupp Arquitectura 2007.

Esta X Edición del Premio solicitó propuestas de ideas para la reordenación del espacio hoy ocupado por las instalaciones ferroviarias de Granada, incluyendo la construcción de una nueva estación ferroviaria terminal del AVE.

Tras la reunión plenaria de debate, celebrada hoy en Granada, el Jurado del Premio ThyssenKrupp Arquitectura 2007 decidió otorgar el Primer Premio, dotado económicamente con 30.000 euros, a la propuesta Blanco, verde y rojo, del equipo liderado por Eva López de la Fuente.

Eva López es natural de Ceuta, estudió la licenciatura de arquitectura en Granada y actualmente ejerce como profesora en la Escuela de Arquitectura de la Universidad de Innsbruck, Austria.

En rueda de prensa, el presidente ejecutivo de ThyssenKrupp Elevator del Sur de Europa, Africa y Oriente Medio y presidente del jurado, Javier del Pozo, explicó que a la fase final del premio accedieron 14 proyectos, la mayoría de los cuales planteaba el soterramiento de las vías ferroviarias a su llegada a la estación de trenes.

Del Pozo dijo que el proyecto ganador ha captado bien el concepto de Granada y su entorno, ha integrado de forma adecuada las instalaciones con su contexto y ha abordado además el problema de la sostenibilidad con éxito.

Por su parte, el decano del Colegio de Arquitectos y secretario del jurado, Emilio Herrera, explicó que del proyecto ganador se valoró sobre todo la solución que da a la división histórica que afecta al entorno de la estación a causa de las vías, mediante su soterramiento, y a la integración que propone de todo el conjunto mediante espacios libres.

Por último, el alcalde de Granada aclaró que si bien el concurso no es vinculante, éste ha planteado una serie de ideas muy interesantes que podrían ser propuestas por el Ayuntamiento a la Comisión Tripartita -Consistorio, Junta y Ministerio de Fomento- que decidirá cómo será la futura estación ferroviaria de Granada.

Rafael Escuredo se alza como mejor líder político andaluz, según un estudio de la UGR

– Rafael Escuredo se alza como mejor líder político andaluz, según un estudio de la UGR.

Una encuesta realizada por investigadores de la Universidad de Granada afirma que el líder político andaluz más valorado es Rafael Escuredo, ex presidente de la Junta de Andalucía. Los encuestados destacan la honradez como el mejor atributo de liderazgo.

Un grupo de investigadores de la Universidad de Granada ha desarrollado un trabajo sobre La calidad del liderazgo político en Andalucía. El objetivo general del proyecto consiste en correlacionar la opinión social y ciudadana sobre los líderes políticos de Andalucía con el importante papel que éstos, y su actividad política desempeñan en la vida democrática. De las 1.200 entrevistas telefónicas desarrolladas en toda Andalucía, se deduce que el líder político andaluz más valorado, con casi un 7, es Rafael Escuredo.

Vídeo: Rafael Escuredo se alza como mejor líder político andaluz, según un estudio de la UGR.

Le siguen José Rodríguez de la Borbolla con un 5,8 y Manuel Chaves, con un 5,6. El líder del Partido Popular, Javier Arenas, no logra el aprobado, obteniendo una puntuación de 4,8. Le supera también el candidato de Izquierda Unida Diego Valderas con un 5,1 de valoración.

Consultados acerca de los atributos y actitudes (honradez, formación y capacidad, ideales y convicciones, etc.), destaca la percepción de que Manuel Chaves es el líder político que en mayor medida los representa. Sobresale en su perfil el carácter cercano de su liderazgo, valorado por un 32,8% de los encuestados. Javier Arenas le sigue en valoración de las distintas características de los líderes, destacando su capacidad de comunicación según el 17,6% de los encuestados.

La honradez es el atributo del liderazgo preferido por los ciudadanos y ciudadanas de Andalucía, de acuerdo con el 81% de los encuestados. Al tiempo, la mayoría de los andaluces y andaluzas, un 90% de los encuestados, estiman que el líder político debe anticiparse a los problemas antes de que estos surjan (liderazgo previsor). Llama la atención que sólo un 5% estime que los líderes siempre deben tener en cuenta los criterios de su partido a la hora de tomar decisiones, frente a un 21% de quienes opinan que el líder debe responder de sus acciones ante el electorado.

200 investigadores en materia de nutrición trabajan en un congreso en Granada

– 200 investigadores en materia de nutrición trabajan en un congreso en Granada

200 investigadores europeos en materia de nutrición trabajan estos días en un congreso organizado en Granada para crear una base de datos española de composición de los alimentos que se integrará en otra existente en Europa llamada EUROFIR de la que es socio la Universidad de Granada y que se puede consultar en la pagina www.euroFIR.net.

Su objetivo es unificar el registro de los datos de composición de los alimentos europeos y enlazar la información a través de la red para que expertos, legisladores y consumidores puedan disponer de datos fiables , exactos y estandarizados de los nutrientes de los alimentos y que estos datos sean los que consten en todos los etiquetados y publicidad de los productos alimenticios que circulan en Europa.

También se pretende que en estos etiquetados sólo se haga referencia a los beneficios que para la salud tienen los alimentos cuando estén demostrados científicamente.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) may Cause Bladder Cancer

– Human Papillomavirus (HPV) may Cause Bladder Cancer

A new research has revealed that Human Papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease, may cause bladder cancer.

HPV is considered the cause of one of the most important sexually transmitted diseases nowadays, and affects both men and women.

The recent study carried out by the Department of Microbiology of the University of Granada, in collaboration with the Department of Biostatistics and the Urology Service of San Cecilio Hospitalfoudnt found that HPV might cause, in certain subjects, some types of cancer: cervical, anus, vulva, penis, oropharyngeal (the middle part of the throat behind the mouth including the back of the tongue, the soft palate, the side and back walls of the throat) and bladder cancer.

The researchers from Granada have focused their study on bladder cancer and have found some evidence of the relationship between both diseases. Nevertheless, they warn that further research on this matter is needed, particularly in order rule out the assumption that this infection is only a viral colonization and does not cause cancer (that is to say, the tumour appeared before the tissue was infected by the virus).

Jose Gutierrez Fernandez, the lead researcher of the study, explains that, in order to draw this preliminary conclusion, 44 articles related to this matter written by experts from all around the world were analysed.

“Our work consisted in a bibliographic review of the observational case studies published up to July 2005, in order to establish the degree of relationship found between bladder cancer and HPV infection,” Gutierrez Fernandez said

HPV is related to bladder cancer

– HPV is related to bladder cancer

The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is considered the cause of one of the most important sexually transmitted diseases nowadays, and affects both men and women.

HPV is so common in our society that only people who have never had sexual relations can be sure that they have not been exposed to this disease. However, as with other microbes, people infected do not necessarily develop the disease, because, in most cases, it only means the colonization. Only some of the people colonized will fall ill with different processes.

Nevertheless, the development of this disease might have serious consequences: It is probable that HPV is related to bladder cancer, according to a recent study carried out by the Department of Microbiology Departamento de Microbiolog?/A> of the University of Granada in collaboration with the Department of Biostatistics and the Urology Service of San Cecilio Hospital.

Several previous studies point out the possibility that HPV might cause, in certain subjects, some types of cancer: cervical, anus, vulva, penis, oropharyngeal (the middle part of the throat behind the mouth including the back of the tongue, the soft palate, the side and back walls of the throat) and bladder cancer. The researchers from Granada have focused their study on bladder cancer and have found some evidence of the relationship between both diseases. Nevertheless, they warn that further research on this matter is needed, particularly in order rule out the assumption that this infection is only a viral colonization and does not cause cancer (that is to say, the tumor appeared before the tissue was infected by the virus).

Our work consisted in a bibliographic review of the observational case studies published up to July 2005, in order to establish the degree of relationship found between bladder cancer and HPV infection.

Standardization of methods

The study carried out at the UGR points out that the relationship between these two diseases depends on the method used: these scientists found different results depending on whether the research was based on the persons DNA or not. Of the 44 studies reviewed, in 39 the presence of DNA was studied. In the other 7 studies the HPV infection was studied through antigen or antibody detection.

The great majority of these studies use PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) for the analysis. With this technique it is possible to duplicate as many times as desired a fragment of DNA in a test tube, and millions of identical molecules can be created from a single DNA molecule.

The relationship between HPV and bladder cancer might be due to the fact that the microorganism which generates the infection has DNA. Therefore, it acts directly on the cell nucleus and makes the cell cancerous. Moreover, the infection spreads quickly when healthy mucus comes into contact with infected mucus.

The research performed by the UGR points out that there might be a relationship between Human Papillomavirus infection and the appearance of the tumor. However, Gutiérrez Fernández warns that in order to draw a final conclusion, it is necessary to carry out a study with a sufficient number of cases and samples in which a combination of several microbiological techniques is applied to the same subject and sample.
