Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA)

Via Bonomea, 265
34136 Triest

Short description

SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies of Trieste, is an institute focused on postgraduate training and leading-edge research in various areas of Physics, Mathematics, and Neurosciences. SISSA was the first Italian university to offer the PhD degree, and has continued to do so with notable success. Since its founding in 1978, SISSA has prepared more than 500 young people for careers in research and teaching: today SISSA represents one of the leading scientific institutions in Italy and a noted center on the international stage. The Neurobiology Sector of SISSA has worked closely with RIKEN Omics Science Center and its predecessor the Genomic Sciences Center since 2003 using funds of the 6th and 7th EU framework program to develop functional genomics technologies targeting single or isolated neuron populations with an emphasis on uncovering the causes of neurodegeneration. Dr. Gustincich is the director of The Giovanni Armenise-Harvard Foundation laboratory at SISSA.

    Theoretical physicists unveil one of the most ubiquitous and elusive concepts in chemistry

    Even if we study them at school, oxidation numbers have so far eluded any rigorous quantum mechanical definition. A new SISSA study, published in Nature Physics, reverses this state of affairs by providing such a definition, based on the theory of topological quantum numbers, which was hono ... more

    How to separate nanoparticles by “shape”

    In our daily lives, the purpose and function of an item is defined by either its material, e.g. a rain jacket is fabricated of water-proof material, or its shape, e.g. a wheel is round to enable a rolling motion. What is the impact of the two factors on the nanoscale?  The impact of materia ... more

    A periodic table of molecular knots

    Consider a short piece of rope: could you guess which knots are more likely to form if you crumple and shake it? Synthetic chemists have long been working on a molecular version of this problem and, so far, have succeeded at synthesizing half a dozen different knots types using molecular se ... more
