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...

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...

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...

The Limits of Demobilization, 1917-1923: Paramilitary Violence in Europe and the Wider World
ID: 240809
Start date: 2009-09-01, End date: 2014-02-28
The purpose of the proposed project is to think afresh about the violent aftermath of the Great War and its legacies. This will be achieved by forging a team of researchers who focus on the violent conflicts that erupted in many of the former combatant states after 1917/18 fr...

Collagen scaffolds for bone regeneration: applied biomaterials, bioreactor and stem cell technology
ID: 239685
Start date: 2009-11-01, End date: 2015-09-30
Regenerative medicine aims to regenerate damaged tissues by developing functional cell, tissue, and organ substitutes to repair, replace or enhance biological function in damaged tissues. The focus of this research programme is to develop bone graft substitute biomaterials an...

Probing the relevance of carbene binding motifs in enzyme reactivity
ID: 208561
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Histidine (His) is an ubiquitous ligand in the active site of metalloenzymes that is assumed by default to bind the metal center through one of its nitrogen atoms. However, protonation of His, which is likely to occur in locally slightly acidic environment, gives imidazolium ...

Hypercapnic Acidosis and NF-kB in Ventilator Induced Lung Injury: Developing strategies to minimize lung injury and facilitate repair
ID: 207777
Start date: 2009-01-01, End date: 2013-12-31
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome and Acute Lung Injury [ALI/ARDS] are devastating diseases, causing over 20,000 deaths annually in the US. Mechanical ventilation may worsen ALI/ARDS, a process termed Ventilator Induced Lung Injury [VILI]. Hypercapnic acidosis (HA) is a cen...
