Sapienza Beyond Barriers

venerdì 05 maggio, 15:00
Aula Amaldi
CU013 - Edificio di Fisica “Guglielmo Marconi” - Piazzale Aldo Moro 5, Roma
Venerdì 5 maggio, presso l'Edificio di Fisica, si terrà la conferenza “Sapienza senza barriere" organizzata da Patrizia Campolongo, Silvia Ferrara e Fabio Sciarrino, junior research fellow della Scuola superiore di studi avanzati. L'evento si ispira al tema del Corso interdisciplinare 2016-2017, che è appunto quello delle "barriere". Il convegno si propone di presentare ricerche interdisciplinari di avanguardia condotte da giovani studiosi della Sapienza. Dopo i saluti del rettore Eugenio Gaudio e di Irene Bozzoni, direttrice della Scuola, il direttore generale dell’European molecular biology laboratory, Iain Mattaj, terrà una lezione magistrale dal titolo "EMBL: European excellence through collaboration and interdisciplinarity". Successivamente i giovani studiosi della Sapienza, insieme ad alcuni fellows della Scuola, presenteranno in formato TED o tramite dialoghi, apparentemente antitetici, le loro ricerche di avanguardia che abbracciano, con approccio interdisciplinare, le quattro le classi accademiche della Scuola. Le conclusioni saranno affidate a Patrizia Campolongo, Silvia Ferrara e Fabio Sciarrino.

A GERSHWIN EVENING WITH ENRICO PIERANUNZI

Saturday, Feb. 18 – 5:30 pm
Aula Magna, Rectorate Building - CU001
Piazzale Aldo Moro 5, Rome

Enrico Pieranunzi, an outstanding ambassador of Italian Jazz around the world, will hold a concert to commemorate the eightieth anniversary of George Gershwin’s death, together with his brother Gabriele on violin and renowned clarinettist Gabriele Mirabassi.

Jazz history owes much to George Gershwin, one of the first non-Afro-Americans to reach success in this revolutionary musical genre. Gershwin had the bright idea of mixing two different and incompatible traditions to invent symphonic jazz, two clear examples of which are the “Concerto in F” and “Rhapsody in Blue.”

The three Italian musicians, who grew up on jazz and classical music, will pay tribute to the brilliant, brave and still relevant vision of Gershwin, who first followed the path of “hybridization,” claiming that “in music, everything is possible,” not such an obvious statement.

The concert will begin with “Variations to a Theme by Gershwin” by Enrico Pieranunzi, followed by a selection of Gershwin’s music transcribed by Enrico. Longer songs like “An American in Paris” and “Rhapsody in Blue” will alternate with shorter, but less fascinating compositions such as “Songs” and “Preludes”.

Tickets: Full price: €15-20, Reduced: €12-16, Under-30: €8, Under-18: €5

MicroRNAs – small genes with large impact on biology and medicine

Two tiny genes which encode not proteins but RNA were discovered in the 90’s in roundworms. These genes were named “microRNAs (miRNAs)”. Many years later it was found that hundreds if not thousands of different miRNAs are active in almost all animals and plants, and that they play fundamental roles in regulating the activity of almost all normal protein encoding genes. Nowadays it is clear that miRNAs are important for most biological functions and miRNAs have been implicated in many human diseases. miRNAs also offer new avenues to interfere with gene activity for medical therapy. While in the early 2000’s perhaps 20 papers on miRNAs had bshed, this number has now grown to tens of thousands.  In my lecture I will give an overview about what we know about miRNAs. I will also discuss they key problem how to identify biologically important targets of miRNAs. Finally, I will present what I think are the remaining fundamental open questions about miRNAs. 13 April, 11.00 a.m.   Aula Magna Patologia Generale

CircularRNAs- new molecules with mysterious functions

While in plants and animals all RNAs which serve as messenger RNAs to translate DNA into protein are linear molecules, a few years ago we and other labs showed that human/animal cells also express thousands of circular RNAs (“circRNAs”). The circular form makes circRNAs resistant to enzymes which in cells normally attack the free ends of linear RNAs to degrade them. Therefore, circRNAs are much more stable than linear RNAs are thus may serve unusual biological functions. Very fresh data indicate that circRNAs can also be powerful, entirely new biomarkers. We now know that circRNAs are produced by specific, context-dependent splice reactions which can lead to high expression of circRNAs in mostly neural or muscle tissues. In my lecture, I will present biochemical and computational methods to identify, quantify, image, and perturb circRNAs expression. I will also discuss what we currently understand about circRNA biogenesis and functions.  14 april, 16.00 pm  Aula Magna Anatomia

Towards quantifying the activity of all genes in each cell of our body

Over the past decades it has become clear that changes in gene expression not only drive the development of an embryo to an adult animal but that these changes also key in understanding diseases such as cancer, neurodegeneration, and metabolic malfunction. Methods to quantify gene expression on a genome-wide scale have been developed with great success over the past 20 years. However, almost all of these methods require large input material and therefore can only be used to study gene expression averaged over many (potentially different) cells. In recent years, miniaturizations of sequencing reactions are leading to a revolution. Microfluidics devices coupled with nontechnology enable the inexpensive quantification of the activity of thousands of different genes in each of thousands of individual cells within a few minutes of runtime. In my lecture, I will explain the principles of these methods, show data from our lab where we apply and optimize this method, and comment on applications. I will also specifically comment on the unprecedented challenges that these data pose for data analyses and the urgent need of interdisciplinary education and collaborations to exploit the enormous potentials of these new technologies. 12 April, 15.00 p.m. Aula Magna Anatomia

Student Opinion Survey

All students are invited to participate in the Student Opinion Survey on the teaching performance of our Faculty teachers for the current academic year which will conclude with a suitability exam or test. Access to questionnaires for the first semester teaching will remain open until 30 September 2017, while to 28 February 2018 questionnaires for the second semester teaching may be filled in.

The Survey will be carried out using the Infostud (Student Opinions) platform and concerns all teaching, concluding with a suitability exam or test. Maximum student participation is hoped for as by filling in the questionnaire, students are participating in the ongoing changes which our university is committed to in bringing about positive and fundamental improvements.

The importance of the Survey 
With the beginning of the new semester, the importance of student opinions arises and the need for each student to express their evaluation of teaching performance so the Faculty will be able to assess the results and any eventual changes. All “attending” students are urged to fill in the online questionnaire by accessing the Infostud system – Student Opinions. The questionnaire is anonymous and is managed by a system that does not memorize user credentials. The results can also be consulted at Rilevazioni Opis.

When and how
It is strongly advised to fill in the online questionnaire during the lesson periods using the Infostud platform, the best moment has been identified when a half or two thirds of the lessons have been taught. The survey concerns all teaching carried out in semester II of the present academic year which will conclude with a suitability exam or test.  It must be remembered that students enrolled in the Bachelor or Master Degrees in all medical studies are seen as “attending students”.
