International SCIENTIFIC WORKSHOP and POSTGRADUATE COURSE: Electroporation-Based Technologies and Treatments  

Ljubljana (SLO), November 15-21, 2020. The postgraduate course, intended both for novices and experts in electroporation, deals with cell membrane electroporation, its mechanisms and applications in biology, medicine and biotechnology. The basis of the phenomena, current applications and future prospects will be main topics of this international meeting. Emanuela Signori will participate as invited lecturer, giving a talk titled: "DNA Immunization Protocols by Electrotransfer".



75th Anniversary MU-Plovdiv  

The Medical University of Plovdiv has organized a scientific symposium entitled “Molecular and Personalized Medicine”. The session will be conducted on-line on 30.10.2020. Duration of each lecture will be up to 30 min. The symposium is planned in the occasion of the festivities for the 75th Anniversary of MU-Plovdiv.

Prof. Blagoi Marinov, Vice Rector of Research of Medical University of Plovdiv and Prof. Victoria Sarafian, former Vice Rector and currently Full Professor and Head of the Department of Medical Biology, have invited Emanuela Signori as official guest lecturer. Title of the talk: "MU-Plovdiv and University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome + CNR-Institute of Translational Pharmacology: a story of friendship and fruitful scientific collaboration". Since 2006, time of the first visit of MU-Plovdiv delegates in Rome, a long story of collaboration has started, with mutual scientific and cultural impact. Lecturing, mentoring PhD students and working on joint projects was a challenge that both sides faced with enthusiasm and professionalism. In this lecture, the important stages of this relationship will be re-traced, highlighting the scientific progress and advancements in studies on the mechanisms of onset and development of colorectal cancer (CRC) – a topic within the scope of research of all partners.



Toulouse-France, September 3-6 2019.

9th COURSE: “Possible Biomedical Applications of Electromagnetic Fields to cancer: from Biology and in silico to clinical perspectives”

The relation of EMF with cancer is two-sided: on one hand the International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified them as “possible carcinogens,” though we lack a strong experimental support for that, and, on the other hand, they can be used as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool for certain types of cancers. As often occurs, the situation is far more complex and multidimensional, since the effects of EMFs on biological systems depend on the physical parameters of the field and the type and physiological conditions of the biological system. Presently, there are well established techniques, like hyperthermia, electrochemotherapy, thermal ablation, etc., that have already entered into the clinical use, whereas much remains to be understood regarding the therapeutic use of EMFs themselves for treating cancer. A primary target of the Course will be to shed light on this hot and controversial issue, starting from what is best established in terms of biology and clinical applications, to the analysis of different theoretical perspectives and future research needs.

Prof Gregor Sersa and Prof Maria Rosaria Scarfì have invited Emanuela Signori to give a lecture in the field of DNA immunization by electroporation

Dead-line for applications extended to February 15. COST action MyWAVE provides grants for trainees.
