Photonic Metamaterials: From Basic Research to Applications
ID: 320081
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2019-02-28
Novel artificial materials (photonic crystals (PCs), negative index materials (NIMs), and plasmonics) enable the realization of innovative EM properties unattainable in naturally existing materials. These materials, called metamaterials (MMs), have been in the foreground of s...

Keeping gene expression in check: eliciting the role of transcription in the maintenance of genome integrity
ID: 309612
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2018-10-31
Genomic integrity is essential for accurate gene expression and epigenetic inheritance. On the other hand, a prolonged transcriptional arrest can challenge genome stability, contributing to genetic and epigenetic defects and the mechanisms of ageing and disease. Here we aim t...

From Genome Integrity to Genome Plasticity: 
Dynamic Complexes Controlling Once per Cell Cycle Replication
ID: 281851
Start date: 2012-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
Accurate genome duplication is controlled by multi-subunit protein complexes which associate with chromatin and dictate when and where replication should take place. Dynamic changes in these complexes lie at the heart of their ability to ensure the maintenance of genomic inte...

Polariton condensates: from fundamental physics to quantum based devices
ID: 308136
Start date: 2012-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
Polaritons are quantum superpositions of light and matter which combine appealing properties of both: the high coherence of photons and the strong interaction (non-linearities) of electrons. With the report of their Bose-Einstein condensation in 2006, they stand as one of the...

Directions in Religious Pluralism in Europe: Examining Grassroots Mobilisations in Europe in the Shadow of European Court of Human Rights Religious Freedom Jurisprudence
ID: 338463
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
The European public square has, in the last twenty years and increasingly so, been inundated with controversies around the place of religion in the public sphere. Issues such as freedom of religious expression, freedom of speech v. blasphemy, and the public display of religio...

Mechanics of Energy Dissipation in Dense Granular Materials
ID: 228051
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2011-10-31
Granular materials are of interest to different fields of the physical sciences and engineering. To model their behaviour, either a solid- or fluid mechanics approach is used. Rather than deforming uniformly, granular fluids develop thin shear-bands, which mark areas of flow,...

Probing the Micro-Nano Transition: Theoretical and Experimental Foundations, Simulations and Applications
ID: 211166
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
The objective is to develop a robust multifunctional framework/probe for capturing the evolution of deformation and failure in a variety of processes at the micro-nano transition regime. An interdisciplinary approach will be pursued based on fundamental theory and experiment,...

Integrating the Multiple Meta-Analysis: a framework for evaluating and ranking multiple health care technologies
ID: 260559
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Health care practitioners face daily questions and make choices regarding the effectiveness and quality of several health technologies (e.g. alternative interventions). On this regard they usually consider meta-analysis; the statistical synthesis of results from relevant expe...

KRas mutation interactions with host immunity in malignant pleural effusion
ID: 260524
Start date: 2011-04-01, End date: 2016-03-31
Malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is a significant problem most commonly caused by adenocarcinomas. Although tumors involving the pleura vary in their ability to produce MPE, pathways critical for MPE formation are poorly defined. We have found that mouse tumors harboring muta...
