A group at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology led by Tomas Marques-Bonet (CSIC-UPF), ICREA researcher at the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences at UPF, has participated in the investigation. The study analysed the genetic characteristics of the farthest branch from humans in the evolutionary tree of primates.
The Ministry has issued the call for collaboration-scholarship with the departments for the
academic year 2014-2015.
September 15 is the deadline to apply for one of 11 scholarships of collaboration assigned to the UPF. During this period, students interested in participating may submit a collaborative project in order to be rated and endorsed by the department in accordance with the criteria set out in the announcement.
These scholarships are aimed at grade students in their last year of studies and masters students.
This study by the research centre on occupational health, coordinated by Fernando G. Benavides, which involved researchers from the IMIM-Hospital del Mar, University of Texas (USA) and CIBERESP network, was published in the Gaceta Sanitaria.
