The wide adoption of synthetic biology and genomeediting technologies has enabled a heretofore unprecedented response to the appearance of Zika
virus in the Americas. In concert, these technologies have led to several advances in the study, diagnosis, and prevention of the mosquito-borne virus. To explore
the union of urgency and collaboration that has typified the rapid response, The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to share their research into
understanding and combatting Zika virus, and to explore the lessons learned. Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions,
and seek advice on topics related to their research.

Topics to be covered:
-Disease detection with paper-based diagnostic tests
-Using gene drives to selectively eradicate vector species

Webinar Time: 71 min

While it is well established that DNA damage can increase the risk of cancer, changes to the epigenome or the chromatin architecture are equally
important. DNA damage triggers a redistribution of DNA-binding proteins around the site of damage, resulting in localized and temporary alteration of
chromatin structure. However, repeated cycles of DNA damage and repair may lead to permanent changes in the epigenome, thereby promoting the
onset of diseases such as cancer. This webinar will examine how we may be able to develop effective new therapeutic options for cancer treatment by
targeting proteins responsible for chromatin modifications.

During the webinar, the speakers will:
Highlight the mechanisms of tumorigenesis and genomic instability resulting from copy number gains
Explain the different forms of DNA damage that lead to genomic instability and tumorigenesis
Investigate how understanding genomic instability can inform the development of cancer treatments

Webinar Time: 61 min

Dai millisecondi ai milioni di anni. Il tempo scorre con un ritmo uguale per tutti, ma gli scienziati che si affacciano a questa variabile la affrontano in modi diversi.
La maggior parte delle reazioni chimiche si svolgono rapide, in frazioni di secondo. All’altro estremo gli studiosi delle scienze della terra sfogliano pagine di un libro in cui le storie parlano di milioni e milioni di anni e gli astrofisici che ragionano su miliardi di anni. Nel mezzo si muovono biologi e biotecnologi, che a seconda dell’area di ricerca affrontano le rapidissime reazioni enzimatiche o i tempi più lunghi dell’evoluzione.
Come si relazionano tutti questi ricercatori con il concetto e la variabile del tempo? Come la misurano? Qual è l’impatto della dimensione temporale nella comprensione dei meccanismi che regolano la natura?
Ne parliamo con fisici, geologi, chimici, biologi in due pomeriggi all’Università di Milano-Bicocca.
Gli incontri sono aperti e gratuiti per tutti gli insegnanti delle scuole medie e superiori. Si richiede gentilmente la registrazione per motivi organizzativi.

Note tecniche
Gli incontri non prevedono costi di partecipazione per gli insegnanti.
Verrà rilasciato un certificato di partecipazione.

Exosomes encapsulate and transport a wide variety of molecules generated by their cell-of-origin, a process now thought to be a form of cellular signaling.
Exosome signaling is common across cell types and species, but it is of particular interest in diseases with an inflammatory component. While exosome isolation and analysis is useful to understanding the mechanisms behind these multifaceted diseases, exosomes may also be exploited for their therapeutic potential. The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to review the current knowledge on exosomes in inflammation, and to explore the potential for exosome-based therapeutics. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are related to their research.

Topics to be covered:
-The exosomal cargoes released during inflammation, and their potential as therapeutic targets
-How inflammatory diseases are uniquely suited to exosome analysis

Webinar Time: 79 min

Helen Mayberg – Professor of neurology and psychiatry, Emory University
Rita Balice-Gordon – Head, Neuroscience Research Therapeutic Area, Sanofi, Inc
Kerry Ressler – Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
Mariela Zirlinger – Scientific Editor, Neuron

Treating neurological and psychiatric disorders is a major challenge. Defining the pathophysiology of disease will require an understanding of how brain circuits normally operate, how they interact with the environment, and what goes wrong on an individual basis.

In this webinar, we will hear how neuroscience is shaping translational approaches to psychiatry and neurology. Kerry Ressler will describe his work on fear in animal models and how this research can be translated to understanding fear-related disorders in humans. Helen Mayberg will share her efforts in identifying biomarkers for treatment selection in major depressive disorder. Rita Balice-Gordon will discuss the challenges associated with designing clinical trials and addressing brain disorders from a circuits perspective.

Join the discussion to hear how industry and academia are tackling these issues.

Webinar Time: 65 min
