Web e medicina

Venerdì 21 giugno, ore 17.00

La medicina ai tempi di internet: i nuovi modi di fare diagnosi, il monitoraggio delle malattie online, la condivisione dei propri dati e la ricerca di una cura sul web. In un incontro organizzato dagli studenti del Master in Comunicazione della scienza della SISSA di Trieste, si è cercato di capire, con l'aiuto di alcuni esperti, come sta cambiando la medicina nell'era digitale.

Una scuola estiva di neuroetica

16-19 settembre 2013 - SISSA

Un campo di studi nuovo e vitale, la neuroetica sta attirando l'attenzione della comunità scientifica e dell'opinione pubblica. La Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA) di Trieste organizza una scuola estiva, aperta a 15 studenti, per stimolare la formazione e la ricerca in questa nuova area interdisciplinare. La scuola si terrà dal 15 al 19 settembre 2013. Le iscrizioni si chiudono il 29 luglio.

What does your brain tell you?

An exhibition proposed by National Geographic Channel unveil the tricks of our brain and launch the new season of the TV show "Che cosa ti dice il Cervello", (What does your brain tell you?). Among others, also two neuroscientists of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste as well as SISSA Medialab have collaborated on the exhibition, on display in the Galleria delle Carrozze of Milano Centrale railway station.

The exhibition and the new season of the TV show has been presented by Matteo Bordone and Olga Puccioni at a press conference on 12 September.

Challenge your assumptions

"Challenge Your Assumptions": una serata per discutere di nuove tecnologie e tendenze e del loro impatto sul nostro futuro. Il tutto parte da RE-SEED, un progetto per sostenere l'occupazione di giovani che hanno un elevato grado di istruzione e che vede la SISSA partner con l'Università di Udine e Friuli Innovazione.

Guided tours at SISSA: a great success

The time of the year devoted to guided tours at SISSA of Trieste involving students has just ended. The initiative has been a great success: bookings were "sold out" almost from the very start and the schools that took part in the initiative expressed great satisfaction.

The involvement of students and post-doc fellows at SISSA has been a key factor, as they all participated enthusiastically as "hosts" and guides. This is the first time that SISSA experiments with this new formula that will be definitely repeated next season

The secret life of knots

The scientific journal Macromolecules dedicates the cover of this month's issue (available online from June 11th) to a research coordinated by Cristian Micheletti of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA). Micheletti and his colleagues,

that include Luca Tubiana (a former SISSA student, now working at the Josef Stefan Institute of Ljubljana) and Angelo Rosa (a researcher at SISSA) simulated the dynamics of the movements with which a polymer tends to knot.

How do cold ions slide

One of the challenges faced by those who study friction is finding a connection between the phenomena observed within the macroworld and those in the nanoworld.

The stick-slip, a phenomenon observed at every scale when two surfaces slide on one another, could be the starting point to identify such connection. The scientists at SISSA have studied such phenomenon through a system of "trapped cold ions".

A network in Vietnam

SISSA has always kept focus on the international scientific scene. In such a vein, a recent activity was the creation of a network with some research institutes in Vietnam in view of top-level training in the field of Functional and Structural Genomics.

Two professors of the PhD course in Functional and Structural Genomics at SISSA, Giuseppe Legname (SISSA) and Paolo Carloni (German Research School for Simulation Sciences, Jülich), recently went to Ho Chi Min City to organize a Neurobiology course, dealing with both experimental and computational aspects.
