Neverland: Regenerating pancreatic islets
Date: September 30, 2016
From 16:00
Location: Piazza San Francesco - Siena
In collaboration with: Fondazione Umberto di Mario/UOC Diabetologia
Contact: l.sensini@toscanalifesciences.org

Diabetes scientific research has made many advancements during last several years, by using brand new and advanced technologies not completely known to the general public. We propose to open our diabetes research laboratory in order to present the scientific tools actually used to deeply understand the molecular basis of diabetes pathogenesis. Moreover, we will meet general public in our outlab stand in which children and adult can play to re-construct the architecture of pancreatic islets while learning the basis of diabetes pathogenesis. Interactive presentations of our research lines will be also reported during the entire event.


Porte Aperte
Date: September 26-30, 2016
From 15:00
Location: strada del Petriccio e Belriguardo n. 27 - Siena
In collaboration with: Fondazione Umberto di Mario
Contact: l.sensini@toscanalifesciences.org

Umberto di Mario Research Foundation is focused on the research about Diabetes mellitus pathogenesis. Visitors will be guided throughout the research methods applied to study such pathology, especially by analyzing pancreatic islets architecture using fluorescence microscopy.


A tutta birra - la birra in diretta (BeerBone Project)
Date: September 30, 2016
From 16:00
Location: Piazza San Francesco - Siena
In collaboration with: Dipartimento di Biotecnologie, Chimica e Farmacia Università degli studi di Siena
Contact: l.sensini@toscanalifesciences.org

The project nutraceutical "BeerBone" (funded by Regione Toscana EU funds) is disclosed through the preparation of live beer, by using glass laboratory instruments (therefore transparent). Also will be exposed 3/4 posters describing the project in a simple manner ( the beer is good for bones ) and will be run at constant 6 different story-telling video.

Yeast Yeast Yeast! - I lieviti: dal neolitico la prima biotecnologia agri-food
Date: September 30, 2016
From 16:00
Location: Piazza San Francesco - Siena
In collaboration with: Dipartimento di Biotecnologie, Chimica e Farmacia Università degli studi di Siena
Contact: l.sensini@toscanalifesciences.org

A continuation of the projects on native yeasts for the protection of the Tuscan DOCG wines and "The Wine Educated", will be given two experiences for children. 1) Fermentation of yeast that are inflating balloons; 2) olfactory tasting of wine aromas; the olfactory tasting will be to riddle.

Vaccini e strategie di vaccinazione
Date: September 30, 2016
From 16:00
Location: Piazza San Francesco - Siena
In collaboration with: Vismederi
Contact: l.sensini@toscanalifesciences.org

Medical definition of vaccine and morbidity of main diseases threated by vaccination. Research and development of new vaccines. Mandatory and recommended vaccines: a comprehensive list of viral diseases featuring their spreading, sintomatology, complications and analysis of spread decrease due to vaccination campaigns. Misinformation and misrepresentation as leading causes of vaccination decrease. Public awareness on risks: how to improve?
