Giulio Regeni was a scientist like us. We hope his cruel death may serve to focus our attention on the need to respect human rights.
SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies, was founded in 1978 and is a scientific center of excellence within the national and international academic scene. Located in Italy, in the city of Trieste, it features about 65 professors, approximately a 100 post-docs and 250 PhD students. Situated on the scenic Karst upland, the School is surrounded by a 25 acre park, and offers a stunning view of the Gulf of Trieste.
The three main research areas of SISSA are Physics, Neuroscience and Mathematics.
The campaign on energy saving "M'Illumino di meno " is being held again this year. This is the fourteenth edition of the initiative, created by the radio programme "Radio2 Caterpillar"...
Following the success of the Data Science Proposal for the “Dipartimenti di Eccellenza”, which got funded by MIUR (Ministry of Education, University and Research), SISSA will host a first workshop along this new research direction.
“We are using an experimental approach based on a set of RNA drugs we recently developed in our lab. The aim of this new project is to cast light on specific aspects of this method which still need to be clarified, along a pathway which – in the future – might turn this approach into a cure for patients suffering from Dravet Syndrome”.
Four SISSA projects have been recently awarded MIT-FVG Seed Funds. They will support collaborations and exchanges between faculty, research scientists and students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MIT and their counterparts at SISSA for the next 20 months.
The appointment with "Scienza e Virgola" is back. Organized by the Master in Science Communication "Franco Prattico" (MCS), the event will be an opportunity to deepen themes addressed by popular science books and to meet their authors.
SISSA awaits more than 500 students in the final two years period of high school. The Student Day is dedicated to young people who are deciding the future of their studies. Students can move independently in the School and attend seminars, conferences, interactive workshops, meetings with researchers, creating their own path in a personalized way.
