On September 2nd 2020, the IN-FET consortium organised a science outreach event at the Science in the city festival, focusing on Nanotechnologies and Nanoelectronics to Cure the Brain. Michele Giugliano (SISSA), Pierpaolo Palestri (IUNET-UNIUD), and Luca Selmi (IUNET-UNIMORE) gave three brief talks chaired and moderated by Valentina Perrera (SISSA).

Check the festival's website to discover the programme or watch again our event below!!

In the June 24th 2020 issue of the Italian Panorama magazine, the IN-FET project was featured, with a brief interview to Michele Giugliano (SISSA) on future novel treatments for Parkinson.

The Webmagazine of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia gave coverage to the IN-FET project!

On February 13th 2020, Michele Giugliano (SISSA) contributed to the SISSA for Schools programme, participating to the Open Day for School Students.

Watch again the coverage of the event by the Italian National Broadcasting TV (RAI), where Michele Giugliano was very briefly interviewed !!

Openings: Two postdoctoral positions in cellular electrophysiology and neurobiology.

Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately at the Neuroscience Area of SISSA - the International School for Advanced Studies, in the lab of Neuronal Dynamics head by Dr. Michele GIUGLIANO.

Both positions are covered for up to 38 months each, on an EC-Horizon 2020 funded project called “Ionic Neuromodulation For Epilepsy Treatment (IN-FET)”. This project combines neurobiology, nanotechnologies, electrochemistry, and electronics together towards a novel breakthrough technology in brain modulation.

At SISSA, we aim at experimentally validating novel routes for cellular and microcircuit stimulation or suppression, in collaboration with a consortium of partners which includes IBM Research Zurich, the University of Geneva, the University of Sheffield, and the Inter-university consortium for Nanoelectronics.

We thus search for experts in in vitro electrophysiology (substrate-integrated microelectrode arrays) and patch-clamp recordings (dissociated cell cultures, acute and organotypic brain tissue slices) with a strong background in quantitative data analysis and an interest for interdisciplinary research.

The deadline for the application is 28/05/2020 and this link to apply.
