A new understanding of entanglements in polymers applications to rheology and processing
In the type of research I propose, I look at polymer phusics from a different angle: I consider the statistics of a system consisting of a set of interactive conformers belonging to all the chains put together at once. The ...
Modular magnetite-filled nanomicelles for multimodal imaging-guided development of effective anticancer vaccines
Tanto las células cancerosas como muchos de los patógenos que causan enfermedades crónicas han desarrollado mecanismos para evadir al sistema inmune. Por lo tanto, es necesario desarrollar nuevas tecnologías que nos permitan ...
Application of enzymes in Nitrogen-13 radiochemistry; biocatalytic synthesis of PET radionuclides with biomedical interest
La instalación generalizada de ciclotrones biomédicos a nivel mundial ha suscitado un gran interés entre la comunidad científica, que ve la tomografía por emisión de positrones (PET, del inglés Positron Emission Tomography) ...
Interventional programmes to improve cognition during healthy and pathological ageing: Cortical modulations and evidence for brain plasticity
(Ageing Research Reviews, 2018)
A growing body of evidence suggests that healthy elderly individuals and patients with Alzheimer’s disease retain an important potential for neuroplasticity. This review summarizes studies investigating the modulation of ...
Chemoenzymatic synthesis and immunological studies of Xylosylated N-glycans
Glycosylation is one of the most common post-translational modifications in eukaryotic cells. It changes during cell development and differentiation and it is tissue and more importantly, species specific. While core ¿-1,6 ...
Network dynamics in nanofilled polymers
(Nature Publishing, 2016-04-25)
It is well accepted that adding nanoparticles (NPs) to polymer melts can result in significant property improvements. Here we focus on the causes of mechanical reinforcement and present rheological measurements on favourably ...
Mesophase structure and behaviour in bulk and restricted geometry of a dimeric compound exhibiting a nematic–nematic transition
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-07-28)
We present structural studies of a dimeric compound composed of a central heptyl spacer linking two mesogens consisting of terphenyl units at which two adjacent fluoro groups are attached to each central ring. The terminal ...
Changes in brain activity during language learning in adults measured by magnetoencephalography
The main goal of this thesis was to characterize language-related short-term learning changes in the adult brain. Previous studies have mainly used longitudinal and cross-sectional designs and therefore they captured brain ...
Motility Control of Symbionts and Organelles by the Eukaryotic Cell: The Handling of the Motile Capacity of Individual Parts Forges a Collective Biological Identity
(Frontiers Media, 2019-09-10)
Motility occupies a decisive role in an organism's ability to autonomously interact with its environment. However, collective biological organizations exhibit individual parts, which have temporally or definitively lost ...
Merging Generative Linguistics and Psycholinguistics
