Automatic synchronization of cell growth


New research published in the prestigious journal Nature Communications has shown that it is possible to synchronize the cell replication cycle in a genetically modified yeast colony through the use of feedback control techniques.
Cell growth was controlled by means of a microfluidic platform that allows to monitor the cell cycle by means of fluorescence microscopy and consequently modify the properties of the cell culture liquid.
The results will allow in the future to develop more efficient technologies for biotechnology and biomedical applications, such as for example the production of biofuels and pharmaceuticals.
The research was conducted at the TIGEM - Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine - in Pozzuoli by a group of researchers led by Prof. Diego di Bernardo of DICMAPI in collaboration with the group of Prof. Mario di Bernardo of DIETI, within the European project FET-OPEN H2020 “COZY-BIO”.
Gian Simone Perrino (TIGEM - now Imperial College London), Sara Napolitano (DICMAPI) and Davide Fiore (DMA) participated in the research.

Climate Changes and Migrations


A study lead by prof. Pietro De Lellis applied dynamical systems theory to predict future migration fluxes in Bangladesh due to sea level rise. Bangladesh is especially susceptible to sea-level rise because it is a low-lying country crisscrossed with rivers, with an estimated 41 percent of its 163 million people living at elevations lower than 10 meters. According to the new model, the cascading effects of the migration in Bangladesh will ultimately affect 1.3 million people across the country by 2050. The work has implication for coastal populations worldwide, and has been published in Earth’s Future, premiere interdisciplinary journal of the American Geophysical Union, that covered the publication of the manuscript with a press release, available at
The study was also covered by Italian news portal “La Repubblica”
In what follows, the link to the research paper, and to the press release of the University of Naples Federico II:
The research is the result of a collaborative effort together with professors Maurizio Porfiri, New York University, and Manuel Ruiz Marin, Universidad Politecnica de Cartagena, within project ACROSS, directed by prof. De Lellis and funded by Fondazione San Paolo and COINOR. 

Presentation of the biennial Master of Science Programs active at the Polytechnic and Basic Sciences School for the academic year 2020/2021


On May 14, 2021, from 9am to 6pm, the on-line event of presentation of the biennial Master of Science Programs active at the Polytechnic and Basic Sciences School for the academic year 2020/2021 will take place.

The event will be divided into two sessions: from 9 to 13.00 the master's degree courses of the College of Architecture and the College of Sciences will be presented; in the afternoon session from 13.30 the Master's degree courses of the College of Engineering.

The Robotics Laboratory PRISMA Lab, coordinated by Professor Bruno Siciliano, is among the partners of the PON PlaCE project, a national project that aims to experiment with new technologies for the eco-sustainable reuse of offshore oil and gas platforms at the end of their production phase. Scientific director of the project Professor Vincenzo Lippiello.

DIETI professor in the Rector's work team


Also Amedeo Capozzoli, Mario di Bernardo, Santolo Meo, Giovanni Miano, Alessandro Pepino,  Antonio Pescapè, Daniele Riccio, Bruno Siciliano, among professors  of the DIETI appointed by the Rector, prof. Matteo Lorito, in the work team to support the realization of the project for the development of the Federico II.

In addition to them, DIETI is present in the CSI with the appointment of prof. Carlo Sansone as President.

To all of them our compliments!




Also the Federico II PRISMA Lab, coordinated by Professor Bruno Siciliano, one of the partners of AERIAL-CORE, a research project for the development of cognitive technologies at the service of an integrated aerial robotic system for the inspection and maintenance of power lines high voltage. Professor Vincenzo Lippiello with the PRISMA team, together with scientists and researchers from the CREATE research consortium and its spin-off NEABOTICS, are engaged in the search for innovative robotic solutions that support contact with high voltage power lines, operating at thousands of Volt, without destroying the electronics on board the drone. This objective required the involvement of several professors specialized in both robotics and electrical engineering from DIETI, including professors Mario Pagano and Carlo Petrarca.
