Regulation of gene expression in sebaceous glands
ID: 627547
Start date: 2015-05-01, End date: 2017-04-30
In the pathogenesis of dermal inflammation, sebaceous glands (SGs) were considered as impotent players that are under the control of other cell types, but without any feedback on them. Only research of the past decade put SGs into our focus showing that besides their contribu...

B-cell development and gene regulation in three dimensions
ID: 322106
Start date: 2012-08-01, End date: 2016-07-31
A major challenge of modern cell biology is to understand how elaborate transcriptional programs drive developmental processes and maintain cellular identity. In mammals temporal and cell type specific gene regulation depend on regulatory elements in the genome. Genome-wide m...

Combined 4D experimental grain-scale characterisation of grain-strains, force transfer and kinematics in natural granular material (sand) under load
ID: 321924
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
Granular materials, such as sand, are complex systems in which relatively simple building blocks (i.e., contacting particles - sand grains) behave and interact collectively and in complicated ways. These interactions produce structural evolution over a range of different spat...

Illuminating the role of magnetic fields around dying stars
ID: 321691
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
The study of the processes governing the end of the life of stars such as our Sun are of fundamental importance. During the final stages of their lives, stars undergo extreme mass-loss in which they expel large amounts of dust, atoms and molecules into the interstellar enviro...

Development of a Bioengineered Heart Patch for the Treatment of Myocardial Infarction
ID: 304209
Start date: 2012-08-01, End date: 2016-07-31
Background: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD), e.g. Myocardial Infarction (MI) and stroke, are the leading cause of death, accounting each year for more than 17.5 million people worldwide, 25% of which is in Europe. Cardiac bioengineering is a new research area to develop grafts ...

Unraveling the therapeutic potential of cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF) in cancer using cell-specific targeting technology
ID: 293973
Start date: 2011-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
Cancer is a major health burden affecting 12-million people each year world-wide. Tumor growth is not only determined by tumor cell malignancy but also by the tumor microenvironment. Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAF) are key cell type in the tumor microenvironment influenci...

Holography, branes and AdS/CFT
ID: 268249
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
The proposed project is called Holography, branes and AdS/CFT. The holographic principle is an important tool to study quantum gravity. It is realized in string theory as the AdS/CFT correspondence. It suggests that any theory with gravity can be related to a theory in one di...
