ENEA e Accademia Nazionale delle Scienze detta dei XL hanno lanciato il Premio "Carlotta Award 2018" intitolato a Carlotta Parisani, donna in prima linea nella ricerca agraria, a cui si deve un contributo decisivo nell'ottenimento di varietà di grano altamente produttive.

Il premio, del valore di 5 mila euro, sarà assegnato alla ricercatrice con il migliore curriculum scientifico, che abbia presentato il lavoro sperimentale più originale per il miglioramento genetico dei cereali. Una giuria composta da 10 rappresentanti della comunità scientifica internazionale selezionerà la vincitrice.

La cerimonia di premiazione si svolgerà a Roma a giugno nell'ambito della prima edizione della Conferenza Internazionale Wheats & Women, dedicata alla presentazione delle ultime novità della ricerca nel settore. L'iniziativa farà il punto sulle sfide ancora aperte per ottenere un'ottimale e stabile produttività del grano attraverso soluzioni ecosostenibili, in grado di assicurare l'alta qualità nutrizionale e la produzione in sicurezza di questo alimento, a fronte degli attuali cambiamenti climatici.

Clonal selection is a major mechanism through which tumor cells succeed in adapting to severe envi-ronmental changes and maintain their fitness.
This Darwinian process of tumor evolution is bound to generate heterogeneous profiles of driver mutations within a single lesion and across different lesions in any individual patient (intra-tumor heterogeneity).
On the other hand, tumors with the same histo-type isolated from different patients may diverge substantially in their profile of genetic drivers (inter-tumor heterogeneity) and yet share relatively homogeneous gene expression profiles and, predicta-bly, the unique biological and clinical features inherent to those shared transcriptional programs. The-se compound patterns of tumor heterogeneity pose a potential challenge to a notion of precision can-cer medicine predicated solely upon therapeutic targeting of a unique genetic driver in any individual patient.
The aim of this workshop is to critically appraise these emerging issues by a) presenting a sta-te of the art view of cancer genomic heterogeneity; b) illustrating how this knowledge can be effecti-vely leveraged for pharmacological tumor targeting in the clinic; c) showcasing examples of how com-putational systems biology and functional genomics can be exploited for identifying novel functional dependencies in cancer cells.
