Alma Mater PhD story telling

Suleman Khan Zadran talks about his PhD project on the development of a potential innovative treatment using an engineered bacteriophage vector to target GD2 on tumoral cells. This vector is retargeted to bind specifically to GD2 expressing cells and promotes the lethal photosensitization of neuroblastoma tumor cells following light irradiation. These results pave the way for innovative and minimally invasive therapeutic approaches to treat neuroblastoma and other GD2 expressing malignancies.

GHAIA will promote excellence in pure and applied mathematical research.

European researchers from Italy, Spain, and France will have the extraordinary opportunity to visit the worldwide leading Universities in the US and Taipei, as well as to receive some of the best researchers from South America.

Emerging technological problems call for the development of a new integrated framework of geometric and harmonic analysis, which unify in an original picture problem strongly influenced by symmetries and coming from different mathematical and technological fields. In this way, we will be able to contribute to some of the biggest challenges of this century: data analysis, models of brain functionality, human and artificial vision.

The final goal will be to obtain new geometrical instruments of machine vision, to be applied to develop new products for the measurement of industrial processes and satellite guidance.

List of the Universities: Princeton U., MIT, Johns Hopkins U., U. Houston, Washington U. St. Louis, Columbia U., U. of Maryland, U. Buenos Aires, U. Western Australia, U. California, Yale U., U. of Pittsburgh, U. Texas, WPI, Stanford U., U. Illinois, Academia Sinica, Queen's U., U. Kingston

The CMB-B2F2 Joint Seminar Series

We want to start a new joint series of seminars that are highly interactive and include “meet-the-speakers” sessions. Our PhD students will have the opportunity to interact and network with inspiring scientists who conduct topquality research in life sciences. The aim is double: to talk about high-level science data, on one hand, and about career choices and work-life balance, on the other.

A 30-min scientific talk followed by a 15-min Q&A session. The speaker, in addition to the title of the speech, will provide a picture and a short bio (2-3 lines) with the link to her/his webpage to be published on the websites of our programs.

After the seminar, the speaker will be available for further 30 min to talk and discuss with the students in an informal setting about personal carrier matters.
Note that the conversation will be guided by 2 PhD students (one from BMC and one from B2F2), who will act as Chairs.
