Blog & News

The CAPICE blog hosts news and announcements, events, media and articles, mostly written by the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs).
They constantly pursue the publication of articles about their research during their activities carried on within this project, and this blog works as a travelogue to disseminate the research results to a broad audience of scientists, clinicians, patients and their parents and the general public.

CAPICE was one of the sponsors of the "14th International Workshop on Neonatology", Cagliari, Italy, October 24-27, 2018. The “14th International Workshop on Neonatology – The revolution of microbiomics” had more than 700 participants and was accompanied, as the previous editions, by many national and international institutions and scientific societies. On Friday October 26th, a Workshop session has been dedicated to a Meeting on advances in pediatric psychopathology, where the CAPICE project findings and forthcoming steps were presented.

A video gallery on the official Youtube page of the event is available and contains the following 2 videos focused on CAPICE, and several videos showing the CAPICE Logo (and many more videos from the last edition of the Workshop on Neonatology). A photo gallery is available on the CAPICE Facebook page of the International Workshop on Neonatology.
