La Stazione Zoologica inaugura un ciclo di incontri per celebrare la figura di eminenti studiosi e naturalisti che hanno contribuito al prestigio dell'Istituzione napoletana. Il 4 dicembre 2019,  in occasione del 50esimo anniversario della fondazione dell'Associazione Campana Insegnanti di Scienze Naturali, si ricorda la figura di Artuto Palombi che ne fu promotore e che lavorò alla Stazione per oltre 30 anni lasciando una collezione di preparati microscopici e un fondo di estratti presentato al pubblico per la prima volta.

Immagine SZNThe workshop Genomic for a Blue Economy aims at identifying the state-of-the-art of methods, potential challenges, and future directions in the characterization of marine natural compounds and their applications as biotechnological and pharmaceutical products. The huge biodiversity hosted in the oceans stimulate the research for bioactive molecules from marine bioresources for applications in the field of biotechnology.

To exploit these promising biological resources and avoiding impoverishing marine resources, new strategies in the pipeline and a new cohort of cross disciplinary trained scientists are needed.

Systems biology approaches, such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, are now being adapted to update natural product discovery platforms.

The two days workshop is organized in 4 sessions:

Session 1 - Omics technologies for drug discovery

Session 2 - Innovative OSMAC approach to improve marine secondary metabolism

Session 3 - Synthetic biology and pathways reconstruction

Session 4 - Panel discussion: Genome mining for drug discovery: state of the art and future paths

The institutional review visit that the Open University carries out every three years, aiming at assessing the quality of the PhD Program, in terms of training and research offered to PhD students according to the Quality Assurance Agency, UK standards; assigned the following judgments to the categories:

• student research environment: High confidence

• research degree policy and procedures: High confidence

• strategic commitment and fit: High confidence

The Open University also commended the investments for the new facilities and the new sites opening, the management and oversight arrangements of the PhD program, the students’ engagement in the institutional life, the transparency in the recruitment procedures and the excellent training opportunities offered to all students.
Roberto Danovaro, President of the Stazione Zoologica comments: This result makes us proud and encourages us to continue in improving and increasing our investments in the training of excellent young scientists of European level.
