Multiscale and Distributed Computing Algorithms for Biomolecular Simulation and Efficient Free Energy Calculations
ID: 209825
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
The long-term goal of our research is to advance the state-of-the-art in molecular simulation algorithms by 4-5 orders of magnitude, particularly in the context of the GROMACS software we are developing. This is an immense challenge, but with huge potential rewards: it will b...

Transcription Factor Dynamics in Living Cells at the Single Molecule Level
ID: 203083
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Progress in bioengineering and biomedicine is limited by our inadequate understanding of genetic control systems in living cells. The lack of methods for studying kinetics and gene regulation in single cells seriously impairs our prospects to gain deeper insight to develop be...

The impact of mass media on public policy
[PROJECT] MEDIA AND POLICY - The impact of mass media on public policy
ID: 210675
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
This project will study political economics issues, that is, how public policies are influenced by political considerations. The emphasis is on the mass media's role in shaping government policies. A smaller part will also analyze how different political institutions and econ...

Global Optimization Methods in Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and Medical Imaging
ID: 209480
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Computer vision concerns itself with understanding the real world through the analysis of images. Typical problems are object recognition, medical image segmentation, geometric reconstruction problems and navigation of autonomous vehicles. Such problems often lead to complica...

CAAX Protein Processing in Human DIsease: From Cancer to Progeria
ID: 208499
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-05-31
My objective is to understand the physiologic and medical importance of the posttranslational processing of CAAX proteins (e.g., K-RAS and prelamin A) and to define the suitability of the CAAX protein processing enzymes as therapeutic targets for the treatment of cancer and p...

Quantum plasmas and the quantum vacuum: New vistas in physics
ID: 204059
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
The quantum vacuum constitutes a highly nontrivial medium, in which complex nonlinear processes, such as pair production and photon splitting, can take place. These processes will yield measurable alterations to classical electromagnetic wave dynamics and laser-matter interac...

Photochromic Systems for Solid State Molecular Electronic Devices and Light-Activated Cancer Drugs
ID: 203952
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
Photochromic molecules, or photochromes, can be reversibly isomerized between two thermally stable forms by exposure to light of different wavelengths. Upon isomerization, properties such as excitation energies, redox properties, charge distribution, and structure experience ...

New Adaptive Computational Methods for Fluid-Structure Interaction using an Unified Continuum Formulation with Applications in Biology, Medicine and Industry
ID: 202984
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-05-31
For many problems involving a fluid and a structure, decoupling of the two is not possible to accurately model the phenomenon at hand, instead the fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problem has to be solved as a coupled problem. This includes a multitude of important problems ...

Genomic stability -chromosome segregation and repair
ID: 201214
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
The eukaryotic genome combines a highly dynamic nature with stable transmission of genetic information from mother to daughter cells. This is achieved by a plethora of protein networks regulating processes such as chromosome duplication, segregation and repair. The principal ...

The Design of International Institutions: Legitimacy, Effectiveness and Distribution in Global Governance
ID: 200971
Start date: 2009-01-01, End date: 2014-12-31
One of the most profound trends in global governance over the past two decades is the growing extent to which international institutions offer mechanisms for the participation of transnational actors. This project will explore two central research questions, pertaining to the...
