Growth control by the TOR signalling network
ID: 206173
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
The Target Of Rapamycin (TOR) kinases reside in two distinct multi-protein complexes: TOR Complex 1 (TORC1), and TORC2. These two complexes are conserved among eukaryotes and function in signalling pathways that regulate different aspects of cell growth. By exploiting the fac...

Adipocyte Differentiation and Metabolic Functions in Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes
ID: 205641
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Obesity associated disorders such as T2D, hypertension and CVD, commonly referred to as the “metabolic syndrome”, are prevalent diseases of industrialized societies. Deranged adipose tissue proliferation and differentiation contribute significantly to the development of these...

Olfactory perception in Drosophila: analysis of a novel iGluR-related family of odorant receptors
ID: 205202
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Chemosensory systems permit organisms to perceive diverse chemicals in the environment signalling the presence of food, dangers, kin or mates. How a specific chemical stimulus is recognised and converted into neural activity that provokes the appropriate behaviour is a fundam...

Epigenetic determinants of the genome that govern cellular plasticity
ID: 204264
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
Differentiation events in mammalian development involve stable resetting of transcriptional programs, which entails changes in the epigenetic state of target sequences defined by modifications of DNA and bound nucleosomes. These recently identified epigenetic layers modulate ...

Laser based photoemission: revolutionizing the spectroscopy of correlated electrons
ID: 207901
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
It is proposed to develop a novel instrument for angular resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES) by combining a laser based ultraviolet light source with a state-of-the-art electron spectrometer. This combination will be unique in Europe and will push this important techn...

Coherence of Spins in Semiconductor Nanostructures
ID: 207599
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-05-31
Macroscopic control of quantum states is a major theme in much of modern physics because quantum coherence enables study of fundamental physics and has promising applications for quantum information processing. The potential significance of quantum computing is recognized wel...

GENETIC AND GENOMIC STUDY OF CELL COMPETITION IN DROSOPHILA
ID: 200130
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
During initial stages a cell accumulating tumor-promoting mutations is usually surrounded by normal cells. Current cancer models do not incorporate this transition from a single cell to a field of cells, although it is probably critical, since the behavior of an individual tu...

The role of RNA silencing in immunity and development in eukaryotes
ID: 210890
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2012-07-31
RNA silencing is a pan-eukaryotic gene regulation process that involves RNA molecules 19-30nt in length. These molecules are produced by RNAse-III proteins in the Dicer family and engage into sequence-specific regulation of complementary DNA or RNA upon their incorporation in...

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...

Ultra-high-Q Physics: Towards single molecules and phonons
ID: 209321
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2012-12-31
The proposed research program builds on the previously developed ultra-high-Q monolithic micro-resonators by the applicant during his dissertation at the “California Institute of Technology”. These micro-resonators offer unprecedented confinement of light in micro-scale volum...
