Laboratory compact light sources
[PROJECT] LABSYNC - Laboratory compact light sources
ID: 213126
Start date: 2008-01-01, End date: 2011-12-31
The need for advanced light sources is well documented by the creation of new facilities such as SOLEIL, DIAMOND, MAX IV and the upgrades of older facilities. The applications of light sources encompass all aspects of sciences spanning the fields of physics, chemistry, biolog...

Do nanoparticles induce neurodegenerative diseases? Understanding the origin of reactive oxidative species and protein aggregation and mis-folding phenomena in the presence of nanoparticles
ID: 214547
Start date: 2009-02-01, End date: 2012-01-31
As the use of nanoparticles becomes more prevalent, it is clear that human exposure will inevitably increase. Considering the rapidly ageing European population and the resulting increase in the incidence of neurodegenerative diseases, there is an urgent need to address the r...

Molecular Networks of Dopaminergic Neurons in Chordates
ID: 223744
Start date: 2009-02-01, End date: 2012-07-31
Background. Parkinson Disease is the second most common progressive neurodegenerative disorder. The selective degeneration of subsets of midbrain dopaminergic neurons is believed to be the primary cause for disruption of the ability to control movements. Objective. We propose...

NANOSILICON-BASED PHOTOSYNTHESIS FOR CHEMICAL AND BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS
ID: 13875
Start date: 2005-03-01, End date: 2008-08-31
The project joins together two most common and apparently well-studied elements on the Earth - silicon and oxygen. Both are most important for human life: oxygen mediates biochemical reactions while silicon is the most important technological material. T he project claims to e...
