Nowadays, one of the most concerning issues that the word is facing is environmental contamination which is endangering human health and the ecosystem. The identification and proper implementation of suitable technologies for remediation of contaminated sites is, thus, a prerequisite for sustainable development. Organized by the Working Groups in “Cell and Molecular Biology” and “Biotechnology and Differentiation” of the Italian Botanical Society the Summer School intends to provide updated insights in modern approaches of phytoremediation with a major focus on the biological aspects underling plant-microbe interactions, as well as basic knowledge on the modern techniques for the analysis of the structure of endophytic and rhizosphere bacterial and fungal communities.
UNIVERSITY OF MILANO-BICOCCA, MILAN (ITALY)
15th April 2022
The Summer School is open, on a selective basis, to max. 20 young Italian/foreigner scientists (PhD students, PostDoc, rtdA/B) with training in basic or applied plant biology.
The school is designed for PhD students and post-doctoral researchers, working in universities, public and private research centers or private companies, with training in basic or applied plant biology. Students will have the opportunity to follow theoretical aspects from leading experts in the field and practical hands-on sessions. Besides, a visit to contaminated sites where remediation intervention are in progress will provide a direct experience of how different strategies can be adapted to address specific issues.
All the activities will be held in accordance with the Covid-19 pandemic containment measures and requirements in force on the Italian territory.
