CELL ENGINEERING AND APPLIED ZOOLOGY UNIT
The unit is mainly formed by two research groups, Cell Engineering and Therapy, led by Dr. Bernat Soria. On the other hand, Applied Zoology and Biophysics, led by Dr. Trinidad León.
The Institute of Bioengineering of the Miguel Hernández University has different groups of Cell Engineering and Applied Zoology:
Our group is interested in knowing the effects of climate change on the global biology and physiology of different animal species in a conservation context. In this way, we use both biological and biophysical techniques to understand the different physiological, endocrine, biochemical, morphological and genetic responses. Behaviors and responses are analyzed to quantitatively evaluate the adaptive capacity of each species to the different environmental anomalies linked to climate change. Knowing these answers, we will be able to analyze more in depth the survival capacity of the animal species.
