The Department of Biomedical Sciences manages the research activity in Biology, Medicine and Public Health. It provides technologies and services to both the public and the private area, with the purpose of promoting knowledge on the fundamental mechanism governing physiological and pathological aspects in living organism, starting from basic research in life sciences to the study of human diseases and of innovative therapeutic interventions. The ultimate aim is to explore new opportunities for ameliorating the health of mankind.
The fundamental activities regard oncology, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, immunology and infectious diseases, epidemiology and health care research, Biology and biomedical technologies. In these areas, some technologies have been developed and they have found a wider use in the different benchmark areas: proteomics, pharmacogenomics, advanced calculus in bioinformatics and system biology, robotic systems for the limbs’ rehabilitation, molecular diagnostics and imaging.
On September 1st the H2020 European project Prochip led by the Institute for photonics and nanotechnologies (Cnr-Ifn) had started. The goal of the project is to realize by femtosecond laser writing a high-throughput super-resolution microscope in a microfluidic chip smaller than a coin
The 2nd BioMaH Conference is an international interdisciplinary forum of major experts in the field of healthcare sciences, contributing in solving challenging problems in medicine. The second conference edition is designed to facilitate medical, doctors, scientists, and professionals in the field in sharing their needs and in discussing possible research solutions, in an international atmosphere, with keynote, oral and poster presentations
The annual retreat of the Institute of neuroscience is held in Bergamo from 26 to 28 September. Thanks to the extensive program of presentations and poster sessions it will be possible for researchers and staff members of the institute to interact with the different scientific realities that animate the Institute. Within the event a biology training course is organized: 'Spot-ligh in cell biology'.
The First International Workshop on Social Media Analytics for Healthcare (SMA4H) provides a venue to promote collaborations, present and exchange ideas, practices and advances specific to social media use in the particularly challenging area of health applications
The European Mathematical Society (Ems) has entitled this year to Biomathematics. The main objectives of the initative, that is naturally a joint venture with the European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (Esmtb), are to celebrate the huge increase and importance of applications of mathematics to biology and life sciences in the last years and to foster the feedback loop between life sciences and mathematics for years to come
The course, directed by F. Di Rosa (Cnr, Italy) and S. Schoenberger (LIAI, La Jolla, USA), will offer an overview of key cellular and molecular signals required for a durable T cell response, focussing on emerging themes in the field. The course is organized by Cnr- Ibpm
Cnr, founding partner of Ri.Med foundation, is promoting the 12th annual scientific symposium aimed at bringing together cancer immunologists and immunotherapists to discuss cutting-edge basic and translational research observations and recent clinical studies focused on cancer immunology and immunotherapy
Cnr, founding partner of Ri.Med foundation, is promoting the first Ri.MED Research Retreat, a moment of choral presentation of the activities and the reached goals, with an outlook for 2019
School of Neuroscience for PhD students entitled 'Autophagy in healthy and diseased brain' will take place in Italy, at Lake Como School of Advanced Studies in Como, 1-5th October. The topic of the 2018 edition will be Autophagy, and in particular how Autophagy can affect both physiology and pathology in the central nervous system, which represents an important emerging topic in neuroscience
