Independence of Group Elements and Geometric Rigidity
ID: 203418
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-12-31
The proposed research contains two main directions in group theory and geometry: Independence of Group Elements and Geometric Rigidity. The first consists of problems related to the existence of free subgroups, uniform and effective ways of producing such, and analogous quest...

Physiological Interactions between Marine Cyanobacteria and their Viruses
ID: 203406
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
Viruses (phages) influence many aspects of microbial processes including the population dynamics, diversity and evolution of their hosts. Yet we know practically nothing about the physiological interactions between hosts and phages during infection even though it is the outco...

Time Dependent String Theories and Cosmology
ID: 203247
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2012-08-31
Great progress was made in recent years on two different fronts. Experimentally we have improved our understanding of cosmology to the level that we now have a standard model of cosmology. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this model is the realization that most of the ener...

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...

Biophysical aspects of self-organization in actin-based cell motility
ID: 203077
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
Cell motility is a fascinating dynamic process crucial for a wide variety of biological phenomena including defense against injury or infection, embryogenesis and cancer metastasis. A spatially extended, self-organized, mechanochemical machine consisting of numerous actin pol...

Fundamental dynamical processes near massive black holes in galactic nuclei
ID: 202996
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
"I propose to combine analytical studies and simulations to explore fundamental open questions in the dynamics and statistical mechanics of stars near massive black holes. These directly affect key issues such as the rate of supply of single and binary stars to the black hole...

Mechanisms of Transcription Proofreading
ID: 202994
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2013-10-31
Transcription, the copying of DNA into RNA, is the first step in the realisation of genetic information. RNA is either directly used by the cell or decoded into proteins during translation. The accuracy of transcription is thus essential for proper functioning of the cell. In...

Stable isotope investigations on the adaptations of Neolithic husbandry to the diverse climatic and environmental settings of Eastern, Central and Western Europe
ID: 202881
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2014-02-28
Twenty-first century European husbandry results from thousand-year-old experiences. This project aims at giving a historical dimension to the growing questioning on present day herding practices among European consumers. Sheep, goat, cattle and pig were domesticated ca. 8500 ...

Effective evaluation of active labour market policies in social insurance programs - improving the interaction between econometric evaluation estimators and economic theory
ID: 202584
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
In most European countries social insurance programs, like welfare, unemployment insurance and disability insurance are characterized by low reemployment rates. Therefore, governments spend huge amounts of money on active labour market programs, which should help individuals ...

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...
