Downhill Folding Protein Modules as Conformational Rheostats: Roles in Molecular Biology and Applications as Biosensors
ID: 323059
Start date: 2013-05-01, End date: 2018-04-30
Protein folding and function is a perfect arena towards growing the grassroots of quantitative and synthetic biology. This is so because all cellular processes controlled by proteins can ultimately be traced back to physico-chemical properties encoded in their aminoacid seque...

Biomolecular Hydrogels – from Supramolecular Organization and Dynamics to Biological Function
ID: 306435
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Certain proteins and glycans self-organize in vivo into soft and strongly hydrated, dynamic and gel-like supramolecular assemblies. Among such biomolecular hydrogels are the jelly-like matrix that is formed around the egg during ovulation, mucosal membranes, slimy coats produ...

UV-Completion through Bose-Einstein Condensation: A Quantum Model of Black Holes
ID: 339169
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
The project addresses the two greatest unresolved problems in quantum field theory and gravity. The question of UV-completion beyond the Planck length and the mysteries of black holes. It is grounded on a recent program of research where we have put forward a fundamentally di...

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...

Production and distribution of food during the Roman Empire: Economics and political dynamics
ID: 340828
Start date: 2014-03-01, End date: 2019-02-28
The project aims at detecting and defining the political and economic dynamics of the Roman Empire trade system by designing and implementing an experimental laboratory to explore different historical hypoteses through computer simulations. Empirical data will be used to corr...

Geometric function theory, inverse problems and fluid dinamics
ID: 307179
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-09-30
The project will strike for conquering frontier results in three capital areas in partial differential equations and mathematical analysis: Elliptic equations and systems, fluid dynamics and inverse problems. I propose to tackle the central problems in these areas with a new ...
