RETURN – Rethinking Tunnelling in Urban Neighbourhoods
ID: 307836
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
This project addresses important challenges at the forefront of geotechnical engineering and building conservation by introducing an entirely new workflow and largely unexploited data source for the predic-tion of building damage from tunnel-induced subsidence. The project wi...

Enrichment of macular pigment, and its impact on vision and blindness
ID: 281096
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in the developed world. The macula, the central part of the retina, is responsible for optimal spatial vision. There is a growing body of evidence that a lack of a dietary pigment at the macula, known as...

Quantitative electron and spin transport theory for organic crystals based devices
ID: 307891
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-11-30
Predicting the electron and spin transport properties of organic crystals is a formidable theoretical challenge as these are determined both by the electronic structure of the individual molecules and by the morphology of the crystal. Quest's research program seeks at develop...

Next Generation of 2D-Nanomaterials: Enabling Supercapacitor Development
ID: 278516
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Climate change and the decreasing availability of fossil fuels require society to move towards sustainable and renewable resources. 2DNanoCaps will focus on electrochemical energy storage, specifically supercapacitors. In terms of performance supercapacitors fill up the gap b...

Programmed and unprogrammed genomic rearrangements during the evolution of yeast species
ID: 268893
Start date: 2011-06-01, End date: 2016-05-31
By detailed evolutionary comparisons among multiple sequenced yeast genomes, we have identified several unusual regions where our preliminary evidence suggests that previously unknown molecular biology phenomena, involving rearrangement of genomic DNA, are occurring. I now pr...

An exploration into the role of microRNAs in innate immune signaling
ID: 268155
Start date: 2011-06-01, End date: 2016-05-31
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important regulators of both innate and adaptive immunity. This is very much a frontier area since little is known about miRNA function in vivo, and there is still much discovery to be done. Their emerging functions indicate that they are as potent as c...

Analysis of Biofilm Mediated Fouling of Nanofiltration Membranes
ID: 278530
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
1.2 billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. Drinking water quality is threatened by newly emerging organic micro-pollutants (pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals) in source waters. Nanofiltration is a technology that is expected to play a key...

From the earliest modern humans to the onset of farming (45,000-4,500 BP): the role of climate, life-style, health, migration and selection in shaping European population history
ID: 263441
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
The colonisation of Europe by anatomically modern humans (AMHs) ca. 45,000 years before present (BP) and the transition to farming ca. 8,000 BP are two major events in human prehistory. Both events involved certain cultural and biological adaptations, technological innovation...

Frontier research in bone mechanobiology during normal physiology, disease and for tissue regeneration
ID: 258992
Start date: 2011-02-01, End date: 2016-01-31
While previous studies have investigated cell-signalling pathways that facilitate mechanotransduction and have provided a wealth of data, to date, in vivo mechanobiology is not fully understood. In the research study proposed the applicant will embark upon frontier research t...

Novel mesenchymal stem cell based therapies for articular cartilage repair
ID: 258463
Start date: 2010-09-01, End date: 2015-08-31
Once damaged articular cartilage has a limited reparative capacity and thus lesions often progress to arthritis. This has motivated the development of cell based therapies for the repair of cartilage defects such as autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI). Such therapies ar...
