Mechanics of soft materials and tissues: modeling, simulation and experiments

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.

Higgs Boson disappointing

July 6, 2012

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 sense of "antisense" RNA

October 15, 2012

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".

L’occhio del fotografo

Giovedì 24 gennaio il Laboratorio Interdisciplinare per le Scienze Naturali e Umanistiche della SISSA ha organizzato il secondo degli appuntamenti legati al mondo della fotografia vista come un ponte tra arte e scienza.

A quiz on food

For nearly one year some researchers of the International School for Advances Studies (SISSA), the University of Milan, Alma Mater Studiorum University in Bologna and the University of Perugia have been working on FoodCAST,a project commissioned and financed by the Lombardy Region, MIPAF and ISMEA, to tackle the complex dynamics of food with an innovative and multidisciplinary approach never tried before. Foodly is a game devised and designed by SISSA Medialab, with the collaboration of SISSA Master’s programme in Complex Actions, to make the public familia
