We are honored to inform you about the International Workshop on Essential metals in brain development and neurodegeneration that will be held on May 21-22 2012 in Trieste (Italy).
The Workshop aims at gathering together researchers with different backgrounds, who are interested in the role of essential metals in brain development and neurodegeneration. Speakers are encouraged to address important open problems, stimulate discussion and interaction among participants.
7 - 9 May, 2012 / Meeting Room VII Floor
The focus of the workshop is to connect people with a background spanning from Physics of Soft Tissues, Continuum Mechanics and Applied Mathematics. The workshop is supported by the projects MathLCEs and BrainIFEM, and will cover three specific applications in the areas of biological tissues in pathological conditions, and synthetic tissues.

We all agree on this: the discovery of this new particle, announced last 4th July at CERN, is of historical importance. But are we sure of its real identity?
The director of SISSA, Guido Martinelli, comments on this news explaining why this discovery is "somehow disappointing".
The scientist, for years a professor of physiology at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste, was appointed scientific director of the European Brain Research Institute (EBRI) in Rome, the foundation at the leading edge of brain research established by Rita Levi Montalcini in 2005.

While studying Parkinson's disease, an international research group led by SISSA scientists in Trieste made a discovery which can improve industrial protein synthesis for therapeutic use. They managed to understand the use of RNA when it is not involved in the protein-coding process: the protein synthesis activity of coding genes can be enhanced, for example, by the activity of the non-coding one called "antisense".
