Understanding Random Systems via Algebraic Topology
ID: 320422
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2018-09-30
Over the past decade there has been a significant expansion of activity in applying the techniques and theory of algebraic topology to real world problems. The expression `applied algebraic topology' is no longer an oxymoron! This expansion has generated new mathematical theo...

The Molecular Communication Mechanism of Motor Neuron Survival and Synapse Maintenance
ID: 309377
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
In order to survive and maintain normal function, the cell depends on a dynamic system of spatial specificity and fidelity of signaling pathways that can respond to both internal and external changes over space and time. This cell-cell communication is mediated by ligand-rece...

Improved Cryopreservation using Ice Binding Proteins
ID: 281595
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
Several organisms have evolved specialized ice binding proteins (IBPs) that prevent their body fluids from freezing (antifreeze proteins, AFPs), inhibit recrystallization of ice in frozen tissues, or initiate freezing at moderate supercooling temperatures (ice nucleating prot...

Symplectic topology and its interactions: from dynamics to quantization
ID: 338809
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2019-09-30
"The proposed research belongs to symplectic topology, a rapidly developing field of mathematics which originally appeared as a geometric tool for problems of classical mechanics. Since the 1980ies, new powerful methods such as theory of pseudo-holomorphic curves, Morse-Floer...

Ergodic Group Theory
[PROJECT] UB12 - Ergodic Group Theory
ID: 306706
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2018-08-31
"The aim of the proposed research is gaining a better understanding of locally compact groups and their lattices. Our tools are mainly ergodic theoretical. We propose a variety of novel ideas that open new horizons for research. The first meta idea is the adoption of tools fr...

Size Matters in Numerical Cognition
ID: 295644
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2018-08-31
Numerical cognition is essential to many aspects of life and arithmetic abilities predict academic achievements better than reading. Acquiring a solid sense of numbers and being able to mentally manipulate numbers are at the heart of this ability. In recent years research has...

Uncovering the Mechanisms of Epigenetic Reprogramming of Pluripotent and Somatic Cell States
ID: 281906
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
The generation of animals by nuclear transfer demonstrated that the epigenetic state of somatic cells could be reset to an embryonic state, capable of directing the development of a new organism. The nuclear cloning technology is of interest for transplantation medicine, but ...

Uncovering the Mechanisms of Cardiomyocyte Differentiation and Dedifferentiation
ID: 281289
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
The quest to restore damaged organs is one of the major challenges in medicine. Recent studies in both animals and in humans suggest that the heart has a limited capacity to replenish its own cardiomyocytes (CMs) throughout life, albeit inadequate to compensate for major inju...

Extremely Thin Absorbers for Solar Energy Conversion and Storage
ID: 617516
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2019-08-31
ETASECS aims at making a breakthrough in the development of photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells for solar-powered water splitting that can be readily integrated with PV cells to provide storage capacity in the form of hydrogen. It builds upon our recent invention for resonant li...

Understanding immune evasion by malaria parasites
ID: 615412
Start date: 2014-06-01, End date: 2020-05-31
"The deadliest form of human malaria is caused by the protozoan parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, which annually infects millions worldwide. Its virulence is attributed to its ability to evade the human immune system, by modifying the host red blood cell surface to adhere to t...
