Atmospheric Organic Particulate Matter, Air Quality and Climate Change Studies
ID: 267099
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Despite its importance for human health and climate change organic aerosol (OA) remains one of the least understood aspects of atmospheric chemistry. We propose to develop an innovative new framework for the description of OA in chemical transport and climate models that will...

Algorithmic Development and Analysis of Pioneer Techniques for Imaging with waVES
ID: 239959
Start date: 2010-06-01, End date: 2015-11-30
The proposed work concerns the theoretical and numerical development of robust and adaptive methodologies for broadband imaging in clutter. The word clutter expresses our uncertainty on the wave speed of the propagation medium. Our results are expected to have a strong impact...

Molecular Basis of Neuronal Ageing
[PROJECT] NEURONAGE - Molecular Basis of Neuronal Ageing
ID: 233358
Start date: 2009-05-01, End date: 2015-04-30
Ageing is associated with marked decrease of neuronal function and increased susceptibility to neurodegeneration, in organisms as diverse as the lowly worm Caenorhabditis elegans and humans. Although, age-related deterioration of the nervous system is a universal phenomenon, ...

Soil   Foundation   Structure  Systems Beyond  Conventional Seismic    Failure   Thresholds: Application  to  New  or  Existing Structures  and  Monuments
ID: 228254
Start date: 2008-12-01, End date: 2013-10-31
The main goal of the proposed research is to investigate the possibility of allowing below-ground support systems to respond to strong seismic shaking by going beyond a number of thresholds that would conventionally imply failure and are today forbidden by codes. Such thresho...

Rigorous Mathematical Connections between the Theory of Computations and Statistical Physics
ID: 210743
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2014-06-30
The proposed research aims to enhance the study of randomness in computation by using ideas of statistical physics. In particular, it aims to place the connection between computation and statistical physics --- the subject of wide heuristic discussion for more than three deca...

The role of mRNA-processing bodies in ageing
ID: 201975
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
Recently, we and others have revealed that, in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, reduction of protein synthesis rates in somatic cells extends lifespan. Based on this, we postulate that the molecular factors and mechanisms that control the mRNA metabolism in post-mitotic c...

Sophisticated Program Analysis, Declaratively
ID: 307334
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2019-03-31
Static program analysis is a fundamental computing challenge. We have recently demonstrated significant advantages from expressing analyses for Java declaratively, in the Datalog language. This means that the algorithm is in a form that resembles a pure logical specification,...

ID: 291260
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-07-31
Ultra-low voltage/power operation is expected to be an important requirement for future nanoelectronics allowing more dense and fast circuits on one hand and enabling the operation of energy efficient intelligent autonomous systems on the other. In present day devices quite a...

A POINT-OF-CARE BIOCHIP FOR HIV MONITORING IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD
ID: 281166
Start date: 2012-06-01, End date: 2017-05-31
HIV/AIDS is one of the most destructive pandemics in human history, responsible for more than 25 million deaths. More than 30 million people live with limited or no access to therapeutic treatments, mainly due to the high cost of highly active antiretroviral therapies (HAART)...

Critical State Soil Mechanics Revisited: Fabric Effects
ID: 290963
Start date: 2012-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
The theory of Critical State Soil Mechanics (CSSM) has become a paradigm within the framework of which elastoplastic soil constitutive models have been developed for the last 50 years. The present project will constructively challenge this paradigm from a missing fundamental ...
