Fund hunting in chemistry

Professors: P. Mustarelli, G. Zanoni

The aim of the course is to give the knowledge/skills necessary to apply for Chemistry funding projects, in both national and international systems.

Topics discussed:

Finding the funding source
Description of national application form (PRIN, FISR, FIRB, Cariplo) and international (VII PQ fasi 1 e 2, ERC).
How to write the general part (introduction and state of art, bibliographic research methods).
Work Project, Task e sub-task (Gantt diagram), Progress Indicators, Deliverables, Milestones, and Risk Management.
Failure analysis.
The role of Research Office local and nationals.

Each student will develop an application that will be examinated by an experts committee. Final exam will be the defense of the project.

Receptors, sensors and electronic noses

Professors: M.Pesavento, R. Biesuz

The interaction between molecule and receptor is the base of modern sensors chemistry. Sensors link the adduct formation and the signal. Most common sensors will be presented during the course, in particular biological ones, i.e. protein (antibody, enzymes) and nucleic acids (DNA, RNA, aptamers). Molecular Imprinting Polymers (MIP) will be also introduced; these particular synthetic solid receptors allow an interesting approach toward biomimetic receptors, with several advantages from them. Signal transduction will be presented, both using markers and label-free.

The selectivity in receptor sensors has achieved by the receptor specificity. Another promising approach is the less selective sensors array. These method are refered as "electronic noses" confronting with the natural analogs. Single sensor answers will be analyzed by multivariate analysis, and some methods will be presented.

Story of Chemistry. Chemistry between botanic and pharmacy in XVIII and XIX centuries

Professors: P. Ferloni, C. M. Gandini, L. Garlaschelli, G.G. Mellerio, A. M. Picco

The course will present topics in Story of Chemistry in XVIII and XIX centuries, in particular scientifical fields studied by chemists and the ones investigated by botanic, natural science and pharmacy.

The course is oper to Graduate Students in Chemistry, Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technologies, Experimental Ecology and Geobotanic.
