The construction began under the government of Alfonso López Pumarejo, it is organized as an ellipse, divided into five parts, each containing one of the academic divisions and its respective dependencies. From an aerial view, a shape of an owl can be seen, emblematic of a deep connection with wisdom and intuitive knowledge; the buildings were constructed as prismatic blocks, painted white, in order to give an austere and clean look. Some landmarks in the campus are the León de Greiff Auditorium, the Francisco de Paula Santander Plaza known unofficially as the "Central Plaza" or the "Ché Plaza", in honor of Ernesto el Ché Guevara.

The campus has its own stadium, where sometimes matches for the Colombian Professional Football are held. The National University of Colombia, Medellín has two campuses, the Central Campus and Campus Robledo, where 10,447 students study; this site provides 29% of the seats for new students at National. This site has 555 faculty professors, of which 38% are doctors, 44% are master's, 8% were specialists and 10% are Professionals; this site offers 26 undergraduate and 73 graduate courses: 15 PhDs, 28 Masters, 29 specializations. Its history has given Medellín a peculiar character, since it was formed as most of their universities from the classical degrees of Law, Medicine and Sciences; the site grew out of engineering programs, why today, the Medellín has the highest number of engineering programs among the campuses of the National University of Colombia and Colombia in general. Central Campus: Located northwest of downtown, between Cerro Ecoparque the Flyer and the Medellín River, it is since 1938 the headquarters of the National University of Colombia in Medellin when the School of Tropical Agriculture joined the University.

Iontophoresis

Iontophoresis is a process of transdermal drug delivery by use of a voltage gradient on the skin. Molecules are transported across the stratum corneum by electrophoresis and electroosmosis and the electric field can increase the permeability of the skin; these phenomena and indirectly, constitute active transport of matter due to an applied electric current. The transport is measured in units of chemical flux µmol/. Iontophoresis has experimental and diagnostic applications. Iontophoresis is useful in laboratory experiments in neuropharmacology. Transmitter molecules pass signals between neurons. By microelectrophoretic techniques, including microiontophoresis, neurotransmitters and other chemical agents can be artificially administered near living and functioning neurons, the activity of which can be recorded; this is used to elucidate their pharmacological properties and natural roles. Therapeutically, electromotive drug administration delivers a medicine or other chemical through the skin. In a manner of speaking, it is an injection without a needle, may be described as non-invasive.

It is different from dermal patches. It drives a charged substance a medication or bioactive agent, transdermally by repulsive electromotive force, through the skin. A small electric current is applied to an iontophoretic chamber placed on the skin, containing a charged active agent and its solvent vehicle. Another chamber or a skin electrode carries the return current. One or two chambers are filled with a solution containing an active ingredient and its solvent vehicle; the positively charged chamber, called the anode, will repel a positively charged chemical species, whereas the negatively charged chamber, called the cathode, will repel a negatively charged species into the skin. It is used to treat some types of palmar-plantar hyperhidrosis. In the treatment of hyperhidrosis, tap water is the chosen solution for mild and medium forms. In serious cases of hyperhidrosis, a solution containing glycopyrronium bromide or glycopyrrolate, a cholinergic inhibitor, can be used. Iontophoresis of acetylcholine is used in research as a way to test the health of the endothelium by stimulating endothelium-dependent generation of nitric oxide and subsequent microvascular vasodilation.

Acetylcholine is therefore placed in the anode chamber. Pilocarpine iontophoresis is used to stimulate sweat secretion, as part of cystic fibrosis diagnosis. Reverse iontophoresis is a technique by which molecules are removed from within the body for detection; the negative charge of the skin at buffered pH causes it to be permselective to cations such as sodium and potassium ions, allowing iontophoresis which causes electroosmosis, solvent flow towards the anode. Electroosmosis causes electrophoresis, by which neutral molecules, including glucose, are transported across the skin; this is being used in such devices as the GlucoWatch, which allows for blood glucose detection across skin layers.

Cami Privett

Cambria Danielle Privett is an American soccer player who plays as a midfielder. Privett attended UC Irvine where played for the Anteaters from studied Sociology; as a freshman, Privett was named the Big West Conference Freshman of the Year and second team All-Big West. She scored five goals, two game-winners, assisted on five while registering 14 shots, 9 of which were on goal. During her sophomore season, she started 13 of the 16 matches she played in, recording on assist and seven shots, 5 of which were on goal; as a junior, Privett started 15 of the 16 matches she played, scoring 2 goals and 2 assists, with 17 shots, 7 of which were on goal. In 2015, Privett played for the Houston Dash as an amateur player. Privett made the Houston Dash's amateur squad after paying a $75 fee to attend an open tryout. After getting an invitation to attend the Dash pre-season, she cancelled her plans to try out for other squads and focused on making the Dash. Between injuries and the Women's World Cup, Privett became needed in the midfield and made her NWSL debut as a 58th-minute substitute against FC Kansas City on May 2.

Dash head coach Randy Waldrum said of Privett making the squad: "Cami is kind of a dream story where, I think, I’ll go to the open tryouts and pay $75 to go try out, all of the sudden, the next thing I know, a few months I’m playing in my first pro game. You’d never know that around her. Although the language barrier made trainings difficult, Privett was able to score goals, get starts, get minutes, worked on catching up on the "speed of play coming from college... is the biggest difference." Of the difference in styles, Privett said that Kolbotn "play a lot more direct we do here."In February 2016, Privett signed a professional contract with the Dash. She made her season debut for the club in the Dash's 0-0 draw against Sky Blue FC. Privett played in 15 of 20 games for the Dash during the 2016 season, recording 11 starts and tallied 1,059 total minutes. While the Dash had 7 players at the 2016 Olympics, Privett was asked to make a start at the right back position against the Portland Thorns on July 16.

Privett had only played on the outside for one season: when she was a freshman at California-Irvine, she played wide midfield. "We felt like we needed her on the field," Waldrum said. "Missing our national team players, it is about figuring out how we get the best 11 on the field at the same time. If I had put her at center back I have to sit Ellie or Cari. If I put her at holding midfield, I have to sit Amber. All of those players, we need." Privett did well in this position, continued to be utilized as a rotating substitute or starter at the position for the remainder of the 2016 season. During the 2016 offseason, Privett focused on improving her skills as a defensive back continuing her transition from midfield to out-side defensive back to center back; as part of Randy Waldrum's experimentation with the Dash's backline, Privett started twice at the center back position on May 20 at Sky Blue and May 27 vs Seattle. Interim-head coach Omar Gonzalez solidified this back line with Levin-Van Wyk-Brooks-Poliana after a shutout victory in Orlando on June 24, starting a 6-game unbeaten streak for the Houston Dash.

With Morgan Brian suffering from injuries and Amber Brookes playing on the backline, Privett started at the defending midfield position on July 2 at Kansas City, June 8 vs Portland, June 15 vs Washington. On June 22nd vs Boston, she played defensive midfield as a 60th minute sub for Morgan Brian. On March 9, 2018 Privett announced her retirement. After announcering her retirement in March 2018, Privett returned to professional soccer on December 11, 2018 as she signed with EDF Logroño in the Spanish Primera División, she left the team at the end of the season.
