Verità per Giulio Regeni

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 - official video (full length)

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.

The Neurobiology of Beauty

«Today we know that our experience of beauty is linked to the activities of specific parts of the brain, and there is one area located in the emotional brain activity in which always correlates with the experience of beauty. Those who speak of reductionism or simply ignore this evidence, thinking that beauty is a matter only for philosophers, connoisseurs and art historians are committing a serious mistake».

Designing the university of the future

They come from the best scientific institutes in the world: Oxford University, America’s Princeton, Geneva’s CERN and Germany’s Max Planck. These are the members of ISAC, the International Scientific Advisory Committee, a pool of international revisers gathering world famous scientists will be spending three days at Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA). From 20th to 22nd November they will attend presentations, take part in meetings and debates and explore the institute’s research and organisation. What is their goal?

Not Only Physics

"Not Only Physics" is a series of informal meetings – not only for physicists – with former SISSA PhD students in Physics who are now employed outside academia, in major national and international companies. The two appointments are planned on 17 November and 1 December in SISSA.

Under the flag of knowledge

“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.

From field potentials to single channels

One of the core aims of Neuroscience is to discover the neurobiology underlying human health, improving the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of brain diseases. Modern technologies allow investigating neurobiology at the single molecule level, including transmembrane proteins such as membrane ion channels. This will be the subject of "From mV to pA, from field potentials to single channels - Thank you Andrea!”, the lecture by prof. Lucia Sivilotti from UCL, UK, that celebrates SISSA professor Andrea Nistri’s retirement.

Laser beams for superconductivity

A laser pulse, a special material, an extraordinary property which appears inexplicably. These are the main elements that emerge from a research conducted by an international team, coordinated by Michele Fabrizio and comprising Andrea Nava and Erio Tosatti from SISSA, Claudio Giannetti from the Università Cattolica di Brescia and Antoine Georges of from the Collège de France. The results of their study have recently been published in the journal Nature Physics.
