What is the molecular mechanism of mechanosensation? Mechanosensitive channel of large conductance, MscL, as a model
ID: 208814
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-02-28
“Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure science” E.P. Hubble It is amazing how much we have learned about the working of our universe by using our five senses and how little we still know about the working of these senses t...

The European and National Constitutional Law Project
ID: 207279
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-02-28
Irrespective of whether the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe or a Reform Treaty enters into force, the EU already has a constitution by all but name. But what does it rest on? Both the current treaties and the European Court of Justice often make reference to the...

Control of entangled electron spins on a chip
ID: 205896
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
The promise of nanoscience stems from the fundamentally new behavior that emerges at the nanoscale. Here, we propose to explore, control and exploit one of the most dramatic aspects of this unusual behavior: quantum entanglement of spins. Our nanoscale system of choice is an ...

Taking Force Microscopy into the Third Dimension
ID: 208792
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
I propose to pursue two emerging Force Microscopy techniques that allow measuring structural properties below the surface of the specimen. Whereas Force Microscopy (most commonly known under the name AFM) is usually limited to measuring the surface topography and surface prop...

New Frontiers in Spintronics
[PROJECT] NEWSPIN - New Frontiers in Spintronics
ID: 201350
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
The aim of this theory proposal is to develop the research field of spintronics in three new directions - i) antiferromagnetic metals, ii) helimagnets, and iii) ultracold quantum gases - unified by the fact that it is a priori clear that new concepts have to be developed in u...

On the other hand: the linguistic impact of having two symmetrical articulators in sign language
ID: 210373
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
Deaf people communicate with two hands. Hearing people communicate with only one mouth. What are the implications of this difference for our view of human language? The proposed research aims to approach this central issue by addressing a number of new and concrete questions,...

Representation and Processing of Pitch Variation in Tonal Languages
ID: 206198
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2014-10-31
In connected speech, spoken words may vary considerably from their forms in isolation. Much of the variation is regular. There have been heated debates on whether and how speakers store regular variants in their long-term memory, and how they process them in speech production...

Re-conceptualizing party democracy
[PROJECT] PARTYDEMOCRACY - Re-conceptualizing party democracy
ID: 205660
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
The aim of this project is to provide an empirical and theoretical re-conceptualization of political parties and party democracy. The challenge of democratic legitimacy faced by political parties in modern democracies derives principally from their deteriorating relationship ...

Small RNA Mediated Epigenetics in Vertebrates
ID: 202819
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2014-07-31
Since the discovery of RNAi small RNA molecules have been under intense study. They have been shown to impact many different processes, ranging from development to organ function and carcinogenesis. Recently, it has become clear that many distinct small RNA families exist. Ho...

The formation of Islam: The view from below
ID: 209801
Start date: 2009-03-01, End date: 2015-02-28
My project is to write a history of the formation of Islam using the vastly important but largely neglected papyri from Egypt. Until the introduction of paper in the 10th C., papyrus was the Mediterranean world’s primary writing material. Thousands of papyrus documents surviv...
