The Management of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) has appointed Prof. Andrea Emilio Rizzoli as the new Director of the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IDSIA USI-SUPSI). As foreseen in the context of the agreement between the two institutions, the appointment as Director of IDSIA implies the appointment as Aggregate Professor of the Faculty of Informatics of the Università della Svizzera italiana. This double appointment lays the best foundations for a close collaboration between USI and SUPSI in a field of growing scientific interest for both institutions.

Prof. Andrea Danani together with his collaborators Gianvito Grasso and Filip Stojceski has contributed to a new paper published on the prestigious journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) entitled "TAT-RasGAP 317-326 kills cells by targeting inner leaflet-enriched phospholipids". This interdisciplinary study coordinated by Prof. Widmann at UNIL, has involved several institutes located in Germany, Switzerland, France and the United States. The research clarified the mechanisms by which a peptide able to penetrate cell membranes (TAT-RASGAP 317-326), manages to kill tumor cells in a manner that does not involve known programmed cell death pathways. The study paves the way for a possible application of this peptide as a supplement of existing anticancer therapies "
