Vent'anni di tradizione per il Master in Comunicazione della Scienza (MCS) della SISSA, il più autorevole e longevo in Italia in questo settore, che ora mette a frutto l'esperienza maturata nel campo dei media digitali e si rinnova, anche nel nome. Da quest'anno MCS è intitolato al giornalista Franco Prattico, uno tra i suoi fondatori scomparso l'anno scorso. Ma non è l'unica novità del 2013.

Mentre si moltiplicano gli allarmi meteo in tutta la penisola, le statistiche non ci fanno pensare bene per il futuro a livello globale: mostrano infatti un aumento costantedegli eventi climatici estremi negli ultimi decenni. In questo quadro, il delicato rapporto "triangolare" fra società, scienziati e giornalisti svolge un ruolo cruciale e fa sorgere una domanda: "come si comunicano i dati sul rischio climatico?"

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".

The group led by Giovanni Bussi at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste has just received considerable financing to study RNA, a molecule with several functions, important in the biology of the cell. In the project, the method of computer simulations will be used.

During the Summer School on Dopaminergic Neurons, organised by SISSA and CBM, the most innovative approaches to treat Parkinson's disease will be handled. Internationally known speakers and several researchers will be participating. Within the activity of the school, the results of Dopaminet, a European project involving SISSA and CBM, will be illustrated.

SISSA is once again a reference point in the Italian scenery of science communication and journalism: an article entitled "Il racconto pubblico della scienza" (the public dissemination of science) by Nico Pitrelli, co-director of SISSA Master's in Science Communication and of SISSA Master's in Digital Science Journalism, has been published in the journal "Il Mulino".
