Arctic Sea Ice and Greenland Ice Sheet Sensitivity
ID: 610055
Start date: 2014-08-01, End date: 2019-07-31
The cryosphere is in fast transition. The possibility that the ongoing rapid demise of Arctic sea ice may instigate abrupt changes on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) is not tackled by current research. Ice cores from the GIS show clear evidence of past abrupt warm events,up to ...

Childhood body size, growth and pubertal timing and the risk of cancer in adulthood
ID: 281419
Start date: 2012-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
The goal of the proposed research is to examine how the independent and combined effects of childhood adiposity (assessed by body mass index [BMI]; kg/m2) height, change in BMI and height, and pubertal timing from the ages of 7 to 13 years are associated with the risk of canc...

The plasticity of parental caregiving: characterizing the brain mechanisms underlying normal and disrupted development of parenting
ID: 615539
Start date: 2014-05-01, End date: 2019-04-30
The survival of species depends critically on infant survival and development. Human infants are, however, vulnerable and completely dependent on caregiving parents, not just for survival but also for their development. Darwin and Lorenz have long argued that there are specif...

Understanding Intergenerational Transmissions: A Cross-Disciplinary Approach
ID: 312906
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-06-30
This project combines the best sociology and economics has to offer to establish a new understanding of intergenerational transmissions. We know that socioeconomic outcomes are correlated across generations, but we have only little understanding of the mechanisms and intergen...

Health consequences of noise exposure from road traffic
ID: 281760
Start date: 2012-03-01, End date: 2017-02-28
There is growing public concern about adverse effects of traffic noise on health, as research has found that traffic noise increases the risk for cardiovascular diseases. Noise is thought to act as a stressor and disturbs sleep. Though this potentially could increase the risk...

Carbohydrate signals controlling nodulation
ID: 268523
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2016-04-30
Mechanisms governing interaction between multicellular organisms and microbes are central for understanding pathogenesis, symbiosis and the function of ecosystems. We propose to address these mechanisms by pioneering an interdisciplinary approach for understanding cellular si...

Programming effects of early life stress exposure to bereavement on future health: a perspective in 6.7 million subjects in 3 European countries
ID: 260242
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2016-06-30
There have been significant challenges in the research areas of: 1. Foetal PROGramming. The widely use of growth variables as the indicators of foetal environment remains the major methodological limitation. And no research in humans has been able to examine the biomarkers at...

Chemical Control of Heating and Cooling in Molecular Junctions: Optimizing Function and Stability
ID: 258806
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
Nanoscale systems binding single molecules, or small numbers of molecules, in conducting junctions show considerable promise for a range of technological applications, from photovoltaics to rectifiers to sensors. These environments differ significantly from the traditional do...

All-solid-state quantum electrodynamics in photonic crystals
ID: 258292
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
In quantum electrodynamics a range of fundamental processes are driven by omnipresent vacuum fluctuations. Photonic crystals can control vacuum fluctuations and thereby the fundamental interaction between light and matter. We will conduct experiments on quantum dots in photon...

Operator Algebras, Free Probability, and Groups
ID: 247321
Start date: 2010-01-01, End date: 2014-12-31
Starting with Voiculescu's pioneering work on free probability from 1983, there has for more than 25 years been a strong development in mathematical research on the interrelations between operator algebra theory, probability theory and group theory. The PI has over the l...
