JOINT LAB MEETING: HERMES & IN-FET

On March 30th a joint lab online meeting was organized by HERMES_FET and IN-FET project coordinators Michele Giugliano (SISSA) and Gabriella Panuccio (IIT): representatives from both consortia presented each task, shared their insights and debated their novel approaches to cure epilepsy and brain disorders.

“Almost all people with epilepsy will need to stay on medical therapy to minimize the probability of having a seizure. With HERMES and IN-FET we are trying to make a difference to heal epilepsy rather than treating it.”

NeuroSpritz 2019

On Saturday August 31st another outreach and fundraising event was organized by the NEUROSpritz association, at Priamar Fortress in Savona, Italy. Our project coordinator Gabriella Panuccio was invited to talk about the HERMES project and biohybrid brain regeneration to the public.

NEUROSpritz is a non-profit science-oriented organization born with the goal of reaching out to the public about the Neurosciences. It organizes theme evenings where topics of braod interest and scientific news are presented in an engaging atmosphere by invited experts in the field. It also organizes fundraising events to support scientific research for neurodegenerative disorders.

You may find more from the event and more info on the initiative in the NEUROSpritz Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/neurospritz.it and website https://neurospritz.wixsite.com/neurospritz.

Pint of Science

On May 20th 2019 our coordinator Gabriella Panuccio together with co-PI Gemma Palazzolo introduced the concepts of enhanced regenerative medicine in an informal outreach setting: Pint of Science (Italian chapter).

Pint of Science is a global Science festival where scientists of any discipline communicate and discuss about their latest research with a non-scientific audience in an informal setting, with the aim of making Science accessible to anyone. Events are held in pubs, where, for the price of a beer, everyone may attend the event and directly engage with the scientists presenting their work in simple words.
