Curiosity, intuition, passion, creativity, tenaciousness: these are just some of the aspects that describe those fellows who have decided to rely on development and knowledge, making science their job.
Thanks to its network spread all over the Italian country and to the great variety of research topics, the Cnr plays a key role facing the challenges that are at the hearth of the international agenda of the research: healthcare, demographic changes and wellness, food safety and sustainable agriculture, energy and environmental protection, accessibility of resources, intelligent transport. This section offers a showcase of their work.
Thanks to a 7000-year old ice core, the Idpa-Cnr and an international team have discovered that an alpine glacier is now accelerating due to atmospheric warming. The deepest part of the Mt. Ortles glacier (Eastern Italian Alps) has indeed started to move for the first time since the period of the Tyrolean Iceman. The study has been published in The Cryosphere
Our personality may be shaped by how our brain works, but in fact the shape of our brain can itself provide surprising clues about how we behave – and our risk of developing mental health disorders – suggests a study published in Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience. The international research team involves Italian scientists from with Ibfm-Cnr, University Tor Vergata and University Magna Graecia
Cnr-Isasi Researchers reveal an innovative possibility to identify sick cells in the blood stream, not visible by standard techniques. The result has been published in a Nature Publishing Group Journal Light: Science and Applications. The effectiveness of the technique has been demonstrated also for the recognition of possible oceans’ contaminants
