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...

Determinants of mammalian transcription start site selection and core promoter usage
ID: 204135
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
Understanding the mechanisms underlying the initiation and regulation of transcription remains one of the most fundamental questions in biology. Much of what we know about the transcription process was inferred from experiments on a handful of genes. As these experiments are ...
