Lectio magistralis: “An algorithm for discovery” by prof. Mauro Giacca
In current times, it is equally complicate for the lay public to understand the progress of science and for the young generations to pursue a scientific career. On the one hand, this difficulty favors the surge of anti scientific sentiments in the society while, on the other, it frustrates the passion for science. I will discuss here a sort of algorithm on how to navigate the complexities of a scientific career. As medical doctors and physicists use algorithms to districate themselves in complex situations, an algorithm based on good principles can be helpful for a passionate approach towards science.

Mauro Giacca, MD PhD, is Professor of Molecular Biology at the University of Trieste, Italy and Professor of Cardiovascular Sciences and Head of the School of Cardiovascular Medicine&Sciences at King’s College London, UK. Until 2019, he has served as Director-General of the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, a United Nations research organization based in Trieste, Italy. A medical doctor by training, he is an expert in gene and RNA therapy for cardiovascular disorders. His research is funded internationally, including two consecutive ERC Advanced Grants, and has led to over 400 publications. He is the founder of two startups to develop novel biological therapies for cardiac protection and regeneration. Prof Giacca is a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, UK and serves as the President of the International Society for Heart Research – European Section.

THE MAJOR TRANSITIONS IN EVOLUTION – Thursday, May 26th – Seminar by Eörs Szathmáry

When: Thursday, May 26th 2022

Time: 6:30pm

Where: Sala Cappella, ex Ospedale Militare, via Fabio Severo 40, and online on Zoom

Language: English

In the course of evolution there have been a number of transitions during which new levels of organization arose and complexity increased. Major evolutionary transitions include the origin of simple cells, emergence of eukaryotes, the origin of plastids (eukaryotic photosynthesis), the appearance of multicellularity, the origin of animal societies, the emergence of human groups with language. All these transitions share a number of features, including the emergence of higher-level evolutionary units from lower ones, the division of labour/combinations of functions, and the origin of novel inheritance systems (such as epigenetic inheritance).

Eörs Szathmáry studied biology at the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest. After finishing his PhD, he served as research fellow at Eötvös University (Budapest), later becoming professor and head of the Department of Plant Taxonomy and Ecology. Szathmáry was guest of the Wissenschafstkolleg zu Berlin, the University of Zürich and the College de France in Paris. He was serving as permanent fellow of the Collegium Budapest (Institute for Advanced Study, 1995-2011). Since 2011 he is the director of the Parmenides Center for the Conceptual Foundations of Science at the Parmenides Foundation in Munich, Germany. His research topics include: the major evolutionary transitions, origins of life and the genetic code, emergence of the human language faculty, levels and mechanisms of biological cooperation, Darwinian neurodynamics and astrobiology. Between 2019 and 2021 he served as Director General of the Centre for Ecological Research in Hungary.

When: Wednesday 27th of April 2022

Time: 6:30pm

Where: in Sala Cappella, ex Ospedale Militare, via Fabio Severo 40, and online on Zoom

Language: English

Ilaria Micheli  is a Professor of African languages and linguistics at the University of Trieste, Department of Law, languages, Interpreting and Translation Studies. In the first part of her seminar Prof. Micheli will offer some suggestions for a better understanding of  Africa and of the richness in terms of different cultures and values it implies. Some brief footnotes will be added referring to the effect of globalisation and climate change on African most fragile societies, proposing a way to help ameliorating their situation through a more careful planning of North-South cooperation, not limited to technical assistance, but rather focussed on a respectful attitude towards different human groups, their lifestyles, their languages and their beliefs.
