Scientific research conducted by teachers on the Degree in International Physiotherapy

The teachers on the Degree in International Physiotherapy combine their teaching work with scientific research. On the UB Campus, you will have the opportunity to train with a team of expert teachers, who are up-to-date with all the latest advances in the field of physiotherapy and who lead pioneering research.

The director of the degree, Mariano Gacto, has published the study “Sensitivity to Change of Mobility Measures in Musculoskeletal Conditions on Lower Extremities in Outpatient Rehabilitation Settings”. The study demonstrates the consistency and sensitivity of these measures and concludes that they can reliably be used to obtain coherent and sensitive measurements of changes in patients’ mobility during the recovery period.

Another recent example is the publication: ‘Lung and Liver Responses to 1- and 7-Day Treatments with LASSBio-596 in Mice Subchronically Intoxicated by Microcystis-LR’, which professor Vinicius Oliveira participated in. The paper is a toxicological study into therapeutic intervention using anti-inflammatories on pulmonary and hepatic lesions.

Another example is the study ‘Discourses on the Toxic Effects of Internal Chemical Contamination in Catalonia, Spain)’, conducted by professor Araceli Muñoz, which takes an in-depth look at one of her usual areas of research: health, risk and internal contamination. The aim of this publication is to show that human exposure to toxic elements in the environment and contamination requires greater attention.

In short, the leading role of scientific research is one of the characteristic features of the degree course which, in addition, is taught entirely in English. Choose innovation and quality, studying at the UB Campus. University enrolments open on 19 and 20 September.
