Refugee crisis as a public health challenge

Refugee crisis as a public health challenge

05.07.2019
20 June marked the World Refugee Day. According to the latest estimates from 2018, over 70 million people worldwide were forced to leave their homes and countries by a variety of causes. Anita Zalisz, student of the JU MC Institute of Public Health and volunteer at a refugee camp in Syria working with children, shared her insights into the issue of migrant crisis in the context of public health. The article below was originally published in Polish on the blog of the JU MC Institute of Public Health.

Returning soldier effect

Returning soldier effect

17.06.2019
For quite some time, people believed that male-to-female sex ratios at birth increase after outbreaks of war. Some argued that it was caused by a natural drive towards equilibrium: that human societies have a natural way of replacing men they lost in armed conflicts. Are they right? And how would that work? In the article below, Dr Ilona Nenko from the JU MC Institute of Public Health talks about a possible explanation of this phenomenon.

Using plants to resolve humanity’s environmental problems is a natural and cost-effective approach we call phytoremediation. Living plants can clean soil, water and air of hazardous contaminants – but how do they do it? Dr Paweł Jedynak from the JU Faculty of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Biotechnology told us more about this useful technique.

Scientists produced 'Armoured Enzyme' Crystals

Scientists produced 'Armoured Enzyme' Crystals

04.06.2019
A team of scientists from the Jagiellonian University and Aalto University in Helsinki have succeeded in placing enzymes into protective protein cages which were then assembled into crystals. The enzymes still function, but are shielded from harsh environmental conditions by the cages. The pioneering research was conducted at the JU Małopolska Centre of Biotechnology.

How do we teach a machine to feel? How can we show it the difference between good and bad? What obstacles do we still need to overcome on our way to designing artificial intelligence comparable to our own? We asked these questions to Dr Błażej Sajduk from the JU Institute of Political Science and International Relations.

JU researchers make “impossible” nano-sized protein cages with the help of gold

JU researchers make “impossible” nano-sized protein cages with the help of gold

09.05.2019
An international group of researchers from the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology at the Jagiellonian University have produce a super-stable artificial protein ball that apparently defies the rules of geometry and may have applications in materials science and medicine. The results of the research will be published in the forthcoming issue of Nature.

Drug resistance – a global problem of the 21st century

Drug resistance – a global problem of the 21st century

25.04.2019
Diseases and other health related issues are indiscriminate and can affect everyone, no matter their age or environment. Currently, one of the most serious threats to our health is the risk of infection by harmful microbes that have become resistant to commonly used antibiotics. We asked Prof. Jadwiga Wójkowska-Mach from the JU MC Department of Bacteriology, Microbe Ecology and Parasitology to tell us more about the underlying causes and consequences of drug resistance.
