Researchers

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.

A stopwatch for electron motion inside matter

Press release 23/05/2017

A research study conducted at the Institute for Photonics and Nanotechnologies of the National Research Council has been published in the prestigious journal Nature Physics.  An international team of scientists has monitored in real-time the scattering behavior of electrons propagating in a non-conducting material after the interaction with high-energy photons. Their insights could have an important impact for radiotherapy

Epilepsy and Intellectual Disability: a new molecular mechanism unravelled

Press release 15/05/2017

Epilepsy and Intellectual Disability, which usually have their onset during childhood, are in some cases linked to mutations in the gene KIAA1202, which contains the information to produce the protein Shrm4. An international study, published on Nature Communication, coordinated by Maria Passafaro, at the Institute of Neuroscience of the National Research Council (IN-CNR), demonstrated one possible mechanism by which these mutations could cause those pathologies
