Common elements in hearing and touch

Hearing and touch, two of our senses represent two distinct sensory systems that both rely on the transformation of mechanical force into electrical signal. Recent studies have demonstrated that there are common genetic determinants that contribute to touch and hearing. We show that an important component for mechanotransduction in auditory system is present in sensory neurons and regulating pain and touch detection.

A journey into the Quantum World

I could try to convince you that my research in quantum physics is paving the way for breakthrough innovations that could revolutionize our technologies. But, let's face it, that's not why I'm doing it. Instead, I will take a different approach and show you why I find the quantum world fascinating and why it challenges the very meaning of what reality is. Have you ever heard of "Schrodinger's Cat"? Great, let me introduce you to a quantum fish.

Malaria, Mosquitoes, and Maths

Juan Estupiñán (PhD student)
Malaria is a disease that affects millions of people each year. Despite the efforts since the start of the 20th century, we haven’t been able to fully eradicate it. In my talk, I’ll give you a historical overview of how mathematical models supported the eradication campaigns of the past and how they can help us to combat malaria in the future.
