Optimal Imaging with Present and Future Coherent X-ray Sources
ID: 279753
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
The rapid development of high-brilliance X-ray sources in the last decade has opened the way to extremely powerful imaging modalities. Third generation synchrotron sources and newly built X-ray free-electron lasers offer a very high flux and can produce X-ray beams with excel...

ID: 322972
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2018-12-31
To detect foreign invaders and to communicate with other cells of the immune system, B lymphocytes carry a multitude of receptor proteins on their surface. In the past, it was thought that most of these receptors are randomly distributed on the cell surface and only become or...

Towards a mechanistic understanding of mRNA localization
ID: 310957
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
The localization of mRNAs has been increasingly recognized as a prominent mode of regulation of gene expression in eukaryotes. Localized RNAs can have crucial roles during animal development, in the maintenance of cell polarity and in nervous system function. Studies of RNA l...

ABYSS - Assessment of bacterial life and matter cycling in deep-sea surface sediments
ID: 294757
Start date: 2012-06-01, End date: 2018-05-31
The deep-sea floor hosts a distinct microbial biome covering 67% of the Earth’s surface, characterized by cold temperatures, permanent darkness, high pressure and food limitation. The surface sediments are dominated by bacteria, with on average a billion cells per ml. Benthic...

Van der Waals Interactions in Complex Materials
ID: 278205
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
Van der Waals (vdW) interactions are ubiquitous in nature, playing a major role in defining the structure, stability, and function for a wide variety of molecules and materials. VdW forces make the existence of molecular liquids and solids possible; they largely control prote...

Rapid Permafrost Thaw in a Warming Arctic and Impacts on the Soil Organic Carbon Pool
ID: 338335
Start date: 2013-11-01, End date: 2018-10-31
In a warming Arctic, frozen soil organic carbon (SOC) stored in permafrost will increasingly become vulnerable to thaw and mobilization. Over millennia, permafrost soils accumulated about 1672 Petagram of SOC, about twice the carbon currently in the atmosphere. Rapid permafro...

From Forest to Farmland and Meadow to Metropolis: What Role for Humans in Explaining the Enigma of Holocene CO2 and Methane Concentrations?
ID: 313797
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2018-04-30
The Holocene record of atmospheric CO2 and methane concentrations is an enigma. Concentrations of both gases increased from the beginning of the epoch 11,700 years ago to about 10,000 BP, then declined for several thousand years, but by 6000 BP, concentrations of both gases w...

Decoding the environmental adaptation of plant stem cell control
ID: 282139
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
As sessile organisms, plants are exposed to extreme variations in the environment over the course of their lives. Since plants initiate new organs continuously, they have to modulate the underlying developmental program to cope with this challenge. At the heart of this extrao...

Activation of Hydrogen by Organic Frustrated Lewis Pairs. Applications in catalysis
ID: 277963
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2017-05-31
Activation of H2 is typically a domain of transition metal catalysis -even nature uses metal-centred reactions for this process. However, very recently Stephan and Erker have described metal free systems able to activate dihydrogen by the use of Frustrated Lewis Pairs (FLP), ...

Individualized early risk assessment for heart diseases
ID: 340248
Start date: 2014-06-01, End date: 2019-05-31
Heart failure (HF) is the common end-stage of different medical conditions. It is the only growing cardiovascular disease and its prognosis remains worse than that of many malignancies. The lack of evidence-based treatment for patients with diastolic HF (HFpEF) exemplifies th...
