Prof. Armin Kargol has visited the Department of Mathematics and Physics at the Catholic University of Brescia, Italy. He presented a seminar titled "In silico meets in vitro. The case of ion channels". This visit was part of a continuing research collaboration with Profs. Fausto Borgonovi and Luca Celardo from the Quantum Biology group at the Catholic University. The research project involves numerical simulations and theoretical analysis of noise-induced phenomena in ion channels in cellular membranes. A new paper "Focusing in multiwell potentials: Applications to ion channels" authored by L. Ponzoni (Sissa, Trieste), L. Celardo, F. Borgonovi (Catholic University Brescia), L. Kaplan (Tulane) and A. Kargol recently appeared in Physical Review E.
