mi+dtv: Tres noticias en tres minutos: El oro español de la ciencia europea

22 November 2013

This week mi+dtv will discuss the election of two Spanish scientists onto the Steering Committee of two European Technology Platforms; the mechanism of perception of certain colors by the colorblind and new potential applications of stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood.


José Antonio López reviews three scientific news. First he speaks about two Spanish scientists who have been voted onto the Steering Commitee of the European Technology Platforms  (ETPs) Net!Works and ISI. These fora aim to develop research and innovation agendas as well as roadmaps for action at European level. The following topic is colorblindness. Does the fact that a colorblind person is able to correctly name the color of an object imply that he sees it like an ordinary person? This and other questions are the basis of the book ‘Psychology of color, colorblindness, principles and applications’. Finally the speaker discusses stem cells derived from the umbilical cord and their undeniable potential in cell therapy. Multidisciplinary researchers have originated epithelial tissue from stem cells stem cells derived from the umbilical cord.
