The postdoctoral researcher of CRETUS María Celeiro of the Department of Analytical Chemistry, Nutrition and Bromatology of the USC, received an honorable mention last Thursday, September 26 at the ceremony for the award of Ernesto Viéitez 2019 Research Awards of the Royal Galician Academy of Sciences.

María Celeiro, in a team with María Llompart in the LIDSA group, receives this recognition for the development of an in-situ methodology for the monitoring of emerging pollutants in waters. The effectiveness of its method allows the detection and analysis of 43 chemical substances present in cosmetics in the waters of rivers near the Galician-Portuguese coast within a period of only 23 minutes.

The RAGC awarded the 2019 Research Prize, to the genetic study on chestnut in southern Europe that is being carried out by the Agronomy Group of the Lugo Campus of the USC with the participation of researchers from the National Institute of Agricultural Research of France-University of Bordeaux, of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Institute of Italy, of the Universities of Córdoba and Extremadura and of the Alava Genetic Resources Recovery Center.

Another of the winners was the researcher Juan Cuñarro Gómez, of the Singular Center for Research in Molecular Medicine and Chronic Diseases (CiMUS) of the USC, who identified a new target for therapies against obesity and metabolic syndrome in general.
