The sky in a pond

It was like finding the laws that govern the movement of planets inside a pond. Because that is where Euglena gracilis lives, a unicellular organism, which has allowed a group of scientists of mathLab and of Sensing and Moving Bioinspired Artifacts laboratory (SAMBA) at SISSA, in association with the National Institute of Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics – OGS, to rebuild the motion in three dimensions of single cells, using a very original approach, which looks to Space.

SISSA's new website

It is with great pleasure that we announce that the new SISSA website is online. This is the fruit of a participatory process which involved the School’s personnel through its delegates. They have all been working with passion to achieve such a high level result. The website, developed by Sissa Medialab, has been renewed in the graphics and presents a new organization, which makes it more user friendly and clearer. We would like to thank all the people who contributed to this important result, in particular Isabella Brumati and Andrea Delise who supervised the project.

FARE fundings for three SISSA scientists

Time maps, reading patterns, innovative numerical methods in fluidodynamics. These are the topics of the research projects led by Domenica Bueti, Davide Crepaldi and Gianluigi Rozza at SISSA that were just awarded by FARE – Framework per l’Attrazione e il Rafforzamento delle Eccellenze per la Ricerca in Italia. These fundings represent vital additional supports for ERC - European Research Council grant holders based in Italy. Three out of fifty projects awarded are carried out at SISSA: two in neuroscience, one in mathematics, for a total budget of 640,000 Euros.
