First in physics, first in neurosciences, second in mathematics. The aggregate data issued by ANVUR - the Italian National Agency for the Evaluation of the University and Research Systems – prove beyond doubt SISSA’s absolute prominent role in these research areas within the national panorama.
On Tuesday 28 February 2017, Adele La Rana, from University of Rome “La Sapienza”, will give a seminar on the history of gravitational waves studies, focusing on the origin of the first experimental activities in Italy aimed at detecting gravitational radiation. “The Birth of Gravitational Wave. Research in Italy: Insights into a Scientific Frontier Adventure” is one of the “History of science” seminars organized by SISSA Interdisciplinary Laboratory.
On Saturday 4 March 2017 SISSA will host the first edition of the 6 x ½ hour Telethon relay, a non-competitive fundraising event. All proceeds will be donated to Telethon Foundation to support research that leads to cures for rare genetic diseases. The event is organised by BNL - Paribas and SISSA in collaboration with RunningWorldTrieste.
Participants will have to be at least 18 years old on 4 March 2017. Teams may consist of 6, 3 or 2 members, either only men, only women or both.

SISSA invites all undergraduate and graduate students to attend the Summer School on Atomistic Simulation Techniques in Trieste. The school, organized by the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) and CNR-IOM DEMOCRITOS Simulation Centre, will be held from 14 to 30 June 2017.
In 2017 the School will be entirely focused on quantum mechanics and in particular will be devoted to electronic properties of materials, chemical- and bio-molecules.
Congratulations to the four authors of the paper "Who Activates the Nucleophile in Ribozyme Catalysis? An Answer from the Splicing Mechanism of Group II Introns", published on the Journal of the American Chemical Society. One of the images associated to the paper has been selected during the night in the Biophysical Society competition "Art of Science 2017".

Statistical learning and its applications to biomedicine by Dr. Toni Giorgino
Empathy and emotional awareness do not affect our moral decisions. This is suggested by a new study published on Social Neuroscience and led by SISSA neuroscientist Marilena Aiello. Our choices do not depend on our empathy. The difference, instead, lies in our emotional reactions, more pronounced in more empathic people. In particular if we opt for uncomfortable decisions for a greater good.
