Innovative compatible discretization techniques for Partial Differential Equations
ID: 205004
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) are one of the most powerful mathematical modeling tool and their use spans from life science to engineering and physics. In abstract terms, PDEs describe the distribution of a field on a physical domain. The Finite Element Method (FEM) i...

Investigating the terrestrial carbon and water cycles with a multi-tracer approach
ID: 202835
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2014-10-31
The aim of COSIRIS is to isolate the simultaneous fluxes of photosynthesis and respiration of the terrestrial biosphere. With explicit knowledge of the component fluxes, we will: 1) test process based models of photosynthesis and respiration, 2) determine the sensitivity of e...

Study of the role of protein posttranslational modification by SUMO (Small Ubiquitin-like MOdifier) in abscisic acid signaling and stress responses in plants
ID: 205927
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2014-06-30
Eukaryotic protein function is regulated in vivo by diverse mechanisms such as protein turnover, regulation of protein activity, localization and protein-protein interactions. These mechanisms involve constitutive or reversible post-translational modifications of specific ami...

Renal stem cells: possible role in kidney pathologies and as new theraputic tools
ID: 205027
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2012-09-30
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) affects 11% of the adult population and is considered by the WHO as one of the health emergencies of the 21st century. Although cell therapy might be beneficial for CKD, human stem cells that might be used to improve kidney function were so far un...

Reconciling Biodiversity and Development through Direct Payments for Conservation
ID: 206994
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2012-09-30
This project will help to meet the vital need for empirical research into the theory and practice of Payments for Environmental Services (PES). PES approaches to conservation have become rapidly more popular in the last few years, driven by compelling evidence of their effect...

Plasticity of the Empathic Brain: Structural and Functional MRI Studies on the Effect of Empathy Training on the Human Brain and Prosocial Behaviour
ID: 205557
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
Social neuroscientists study the neural mechanisms underlying our capacity to understand our own and other people’s feelings. Despite neuroscientists’ advances in plasticity research and empathy research, little is known about cortical and behavioural plasticity in emotion un...

Leptin, metabolic state and natural regulatory T cells: cellular and molecular basis for a novel immune intervention in autoimmunity
ID: 202579
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2011-10-31
Our Group has been investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms involving leptin, the adipocyte-derived hormone, in the pathogenesis of autoimmunity such as experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and multiple sclerosis (MS).We analyzed the serum and cerebro-sp...

Topological, Geometric and Analytical Study of Singularities
ID: 202654
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2013-10-31
Singularity theory is a transversal research subject in which many different techniques converge (algebraic, analytical, geometric, topological), with different perspectives (local, global), but with a very strong interconnection. Our research involves the study of analytic s...
