Spanish news. A team of researchers from the University of Warwick (United Kingdom) has discovered how cells respond to fasting and activate the autophagy process. "Understanding the molecular mechanisms of activation of autophagy genes during fasting will help us use interventions to activate autophagic pathways to maintain normal body weight and promote healthy well-being," says lead author Professor Ioannis Nezis.

Polish news site. "This research is very promising as it suggests vaccines will prevent the spread of the virus," said Lawrence Young, professor of molecular oncology at Warwick Medical School, in response to the Science Media Center in the UK. "You cannot spread the virus unless you are infected, and this research shows that the vaccine blocks infection in people who have no symptoms but can pass the virus on."

German financial news site reports: "A study by Warwick Business School, in which 2,800 investors participated, found an even greater difference in performance between the two sexes over a period of three years. While annual investment returns for men averaged 0.14% above the performance of the FTSE 100, women outperformed the index by a respectable 1.94%. In short, women's returns on investments outperformed men by 1.8%." (March 2021) Also in Focus, Yahoo! Finanzen , Borsen News
Schools do not play a significant role in the spread of Covid-19 in the population -- this is the result of the study carried out by the epidemiologists of the University of Warwick, in Great Britain. See also EUROPA PRESS. (Feb 21)
Researchers have detailed a mechanism in the distinctive crown of SARS-CoV-2 that could help scientists quickly find new treatments for the virus and quickly test whether existing treatments are likely to work with mutated versions as they are developed. The team, led by the University of Warwick, in the United Kingdom, as part of the EUTOPIA community of European universities, has simulated movements in almost 300 protein structures of the spike protein of the Covid-19 virus using computational modeling techniques, in an effort to help identify promising drug targets against the virus.
