· The Jagiellonian University in Krakow awards Dr. Rubí, director of the Statistical Physics research group, with the Gold Plus Ratio Quan Vis' Gold Medal, for his outstanding achievements in the field of thermodynamics of nanoscopic systems.

· A theoretical study explains the “natural selection” of proteins. Researchers from Nanosystems Statistical Physics-Complex Matter Group, lead by Giancarlo Franzese, presented the first computational study that mimics the natural selection of proteins in water under different environmental conditions, aiming to design amino acid sequences able to express their functions at specific temperatures and pressures.  Pysical Review X.
