The first Galaxies
[PROJECT] EGGS - The first Galaxies
ID: 278202
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
The goal of this project is to discover the first galaxies that formed after the Big Bang. The astrophysics of galaxy formation is deeply fascinating. From tiny density fluctuations of quantum mechanical nature believed to have formed during an inflationary period a tiny frac...

Predicting the arsenic content in groundwater of the floodplains in SE Asia
ID: 338972
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2018-03-31
More than 100 million people living on the floodplains of the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna, Mekong and Red River, all draining the Himalayas, are consuming arsenic contaminated water. Providing safe drinking water for these people requires a quantitative understanding of the pro...

Spectroscopy of Trapped Antihydrogen
ID: 321178
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2018-12-31
Antihydrogen is the only stable, neutral antimatter system available for laboratory study. Recently, the ALPHA Collaboration at CERN has succeeded in synthesizing and trapping antihydrogen atoms, storing them for up to 1000 s, and performing the first resonant spectroscopy, u...

Coupled Cluster Calculations on Large Molecular Systems
ID: 291371
Start date: 2012-05-01, End date: 2017-04-30
Quantum mechanics provides the key to the understanding of the molecular world. Many years of theoretical research have made coupled cluster calculations the state-of-the-art method for small molecules, where calculations have reached an accuracy often challenging experimenta...

Light-driven Chemical Synthesis using Cytochrome P450s
ID: 323034
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2019-02-28
The goal of this proposed research initiative is to engineer chloroplasts into production units for high value bio-active natural products. The first aim is to re-route the biosynthetic pathways for these compounds into the chloroplast and to boost compound formation by optim...

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...

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...
