Universidad Europea researchers are rewarded at the University of Oviedo National Sports Medicine Research Awards

The awards granted to the group of Universidad Europea researchers recognize their research in medicine related to physical exercise

On November 15, the University of Oviedo School of Sports Medicine granted two awards to a group of researchers from the School of Sports and Exercise Sciences. The awards, organized in collaboration with Liberbank, recognized two research projects with the first and second prizes.

First prize went to the group of researchers coordinated by professor Alejandro Lucía, from the Universidad Europea and the Hospital 12 de Octubre Research Institute, for its study on the 'Effects of a physical exercise program in pediatric patients with solid tumors'. The second prize was for the study on the ‘Effects on physical condition of an intradialysis exercise program in patients with chronic kidney disease’ led by professor and main author Margarita Pérez Ruiz.

Since 2013, Universidad Europea researchers have won first or second prize, and this year they were rewarded with both recognitions. La Universidad Europea would like to express its admiration for researchers Helios Pareja, Zoraida Verde, Elena Santana, Luis Miguel López Mojares, Catalina Santiago, Félix Gómez, Julio Padilla, Patricia Vázquez, Alejandro Lucía and Margarita Pérez for their consistency in physical exercise-related research to scientifically prove the benefits of sport in people with or without pathologies.
