URSA GLASSWOOL, URSA AIR
Built in 2008, with a budget of over 15 million euro, the Pfizer-Universidad de Granada-Junta de Andalucía Centre for Genomics and Oncological Research (GENYO), is a mixed centre with stakes held by the Regional Ministry of Economy, Innovation, Science and Employment, the Regional Ministry of Equality, Health and Social Policies, the University of Granada and the pharmaceutical company Pfizer. GENYO was conceived as a place for excellence research in genomic medicine, studying the genetic basis of human diseases – especially cancer –, placing special emphasis on genetic disorders related to inheritance and reactions to certain medicines.
GENYO was created as a space for multidisciplinary investigation where different professionals from the health, academic and business worlds interact. Their work allows new illnesses to be diagnosed, prevented and treated, on the base of joint and coordinated application of first-class knowledge on different aspects of genetics.
URSA feels especially proud to have taken part in this project, where 6,500 square metres of URSA GLASSWOOL were used, a glass mineral wool with no facing. This material was used to insulate interior partition walls in the new complex.
Furthermore, developers of this new project also counted on URSA AIR P6085, employing 1,500 square metres of this mineral wool panel faced with reinforced Kraft aluminium at the external side and a micro-perforated reinforced aluminium layer at the internal side, for the construction of ducts.
