JU scientists to work on a catalytic converter for diesel engines

22.02.2019
The development of an effective structural catalytic converter to reduce the amount of nitrogen oxides in fumes emitted by diesel engines and remove soot particles from them will be the goal of a joint effort of Polish and Chinese researchers. The project, headed by Prof. Zbigniew Sojka from the Jagiellonian University Faculty of Chemistry, will be run within the framework of the first bilateral grant competition organised by the National Research and Development Centre (Poland) and the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China.

JU astronomers among creators of a new sky map

20.02.2019
An international team of more than 200 astronomers from 18 countries has published the first phase of a major new radio sky survey at unprecedented sensitivity using the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) telescope. The survey reveals hundreds of thousands of previously undetected galaxies, shedding new light on many research areas including the physics of black holes and how clusters of galaxies evolve.

6 anti-vaxxer myths

21.01.2019
The last few years marked a dramatic rise in distrust towards vaccination. A somewhat substantial portion of the general population became suspicious of the procedure, as it’s one of the very few performed on healthy people, particularly children. Additionally, vaccination is quite often administered involuntarily. These misgivings are further deepened by various anti-vax movements which seek to downplay the benefits of vaccination and change the policies that regulate it.

Do beetles rule the world?

17.01.2019
The earth is dominated by humans, whose activity contributes to the rapid decline in biodiversity on our planet. Yet, if we put members of all catalogued species together, every fourth of them would be a... beetle! What is the reason for the fact that these insects constitute such a large proportion of living beings on our globe? We asked Dr hab. Stanisław Knutelski from the Department of Entomology at the JU Institute of Biology and Biomedical Studies to shed more light on this issue.

To sleep or not to sleep - that is the question

04.01.2019
We intuitively know that sleep is important for our health and wellbeing. Probably all of us have experienced the negative consequences of its shortage, such as impaired concentration, slower reaction times or inability to engage in more strenuous activities. It’s estimated that over a quarter of Poles suffer from a chronic shortage of sleep. It has also turned out that sleep deficiency has a negative impact on the periods of rest.
