The sky in a pond

17 January 2018

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

16 January 2018

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.

Under the flag of knowledge

06 November 2017

“This film is a tribute to good education, which is a fundamental human right. I interviewed five SISSA PhD students from all over the world to present their stories. Their experience is similar to that of many other people who, one day, decided to leave their home to improve their education. Students I interviewed have talent, they have overcome many difficulties, they have worked hard to get good results. All of them are very special people who study in very special institutes like ICTP and SISSA”. This is how Rodrigo de León Ardón comments on the video he has conceived and produced.
