Microbiology of Dehalococcoides-like Chloroflexi
ID: 202903
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-12-31
I propose to initiate research on a specific group of bacteria, here denominated as the “Dehalococcoides-like Chloroflexi”. This group of bacteria is formed by several cultivated strains of the genus Dehalococcoides and many sequences of uncultivated organisms mostly from mar...

Political Economies of Democratisation
ID: 202596
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2012-12-31
Democracy promotion has been a key political project in the post-Cold War era and many studies have documented the successes and failures of democratisation. Yet, the current practice of, and academic literature on, democratisation have been characterised by two key limitatio...

Iwasawa theory of p-adic Lie extensions
ID: 202305
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
One of the most challenging topics in modern number theory is the mysterious relation between special values of L-functions and Galois cohomology: they are the “shadows” in the two completely different worlds of complex and p-adic analysis of one and the same geometric object...

Conservation and Divergence of Tissue-Specific Transcriptional Regulation
ID: 202218
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
Vertebrates contain hundreds of different cell types which maintain phenotypic identity by a combination of epigenetic programming and genomic regulation. Systems biology approaches are now used in a number of laboratories to determine how transcription factors and chromatin ...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Molecular Movies of Protein Folding
ID: 210999
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
Protein folding, the process by which a protein assumes its three-dimensional shape, is one of the basic unsolved problems of biophysical and biochemical research. Many of the structural changes taking place during protein folding, especially during the early stages, are as y...
