Metal catalysis in biological habitats: New strategies for optical bio-sensing and targeted therapy
ID: 340055
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2020-01-31
This proposal aims at the discovery of robust transition-metal catalyzed transformations that can take place in aqueous media and cellular lysates, and are susceptible of being exported to living cells. Specifically, we will exploit the special coordination and activation abi...

On the move: Motor-cargo and motor-microtubule interactions studied with quantitative, high spatio-temporal resolution microscopy in vivo
ID: 337191
Start date: 2013-09-01, End date: 2017-12-31
Intracellular transport plays a key role in many cellular processes. Cells rely on a well-regulated, two-way transport system that consists of molecular motors and cytoskeletal filaments for their correct functioning. In nerve cells, breakdown of transport is tightly linked t...

Engineering an artificial immune system with functional components assembled from prokaryotic parts and modules
ID: 322797
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2019-04-30
The objective of this project is to overcome current limitations for antibody production that are inherent to the extant immune system of vertebrates. This will be done by creating an all-in-one artificial/synthetic counterpart based exclusively on prokaryotic parts, devices ...

Labor Market Risk and Skill Diversity: Implications for Efficiency, Policy, and Estimation
ID: 339186
Start date: 2014-05-01, End date: 2019-04-30
Labor market risk and skill diversity are central features of the labor market. Arguably, employment risk is one of the biggest sources of uncertainty most individuals face in their life time. Likewise, exploiting the synergies and complementarities between differentially ski...

Variability in the mutation rate of RNA viruses
ID: 281191
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
RNA viruses are the fastest evolving entities in nature. Such rapid evolution is explained by their mutation rates, which are orders of magnitude higher than those of DNA organisms. The error-prone replication of RNA viruses also has public-health implications related to path...
