Professor Luigi Lucini discusses the prize by Emanuela Gazzotti | 16 ottobre 2020 The prestigious Nobel Prize was established in 1901 so 2020 marks its 119th edition. Cattolicanews publishes opinions from the University’s professors regarding these prestigious international awards, attributed to laureates who have distinguished themselves in the various fields of human knowledge and who have benefited humanity with their research. "Researchers have discovered a method for genome editing that exploits the ability of some bacteria to defend themselves against viruses and have adapted this immune defense system to selectively modify a portion of DNA in any organism," Professor Luigi Lucini said. This may mean effectively combating certain diseases, especially genetic disorders; interacting with the mechanisms underlying virus infection; or improving resistance to drought or a pathogen in plants by using fewer pesticides," Lucini added. Professor Lucini also pointed out the ethical concerns that arise as a result of this discovery "since when we talk about humans there is a huge implication to consider, namely whether or not these techniques are actually used".

 

The Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences to auction theorists

NOBEL PRIZE 2020 The Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences to auction theorists Special Nobel Prize 2020. The award for Economic Sciences went to Paul R. Milgrom and Robert B. Wilson. Professor Luca Colombo comments on the awarding of the prize by Emanuela Gazzotti | 16 ottobre 2020 The prestigious Nobel Prize was established in 1901 so 2020 marks its 119th edition. Paul Milgrom and Robert Wilson have made important contributions to auction theory which have had significant practical outcomes," said Luca Colombo. In particular, in 2016 Milgrom designed the auction mechanism which was then used to reallocate radio and TV frequencies to broadband, while Wilson developed auction models in various sectors such as electricity, gas, and telecommunications. "The two Nobel prize-laureates studied how auctions can efficiently aggregate the private information available to the different bidders and explained how to deal with situations where there is interaction between the bidders’ evaluations,” Professor Colombo explained.“ Moreover, they are leading exponents of a group of economists who have contributed to redefine research in different fields of applied microeconomics, such as industrial economics, using the typical tools of the game theory and information economics."

Instead these types of black holes are cosmic giants that have a mass of between one million and one billion solar masses and which seem to exist within many galaxies including our Milky Way».
