The Plant Immune System: a multidisciplinary approach to uncover how plants simultaneously deal with beneficial and parasitic organisms to maximize profits and protection
ID: 269072
Start date: 2011-03-01, End date: 2017-02-28
In nature, plants live in complex environments in which they are attacked by a multitude of pathogens and pests. In agriculture this leads to tremendous annual crop losses, representing a value of over 450 billion worldwide. Beneficial associations between plants and other or...

Mimicking pathogens; an integrated nano-medicine approach to developing intelligent cancer vaccines
ID: 269019
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2017-10-31
Tumour cells survive and grow because they are not effectively recognized by the immune system as ¿foreign¿ and are therefore not attacked and destroyed like most pathogens. We have already demonstrated the clinical value of dendritic cell (DC) vaccines that activate the immu...

The Dynamic Protein Matrix in Photosynthesis: From Disorder to Life
ID: 267333
Start date: 2011-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
In photosynthesis solar light is harvested by an antenna, the energy is transferred to the photosynthetic reaction center where a charge separation occurs. These processes occur on an ultrafast timescale and result in a stable product. The photosynthetic apparatus consists of...

Families of migrant origin: a life course perspective
ID: 263829
Start date: 2011-02-01, End date: 2016-08-31
Over the last decades European societies have become more ethnically diverse. However, a more comprehensive understanding of the life course and population dynamics in migrant families is still lacking. Ignoring a large share of the population in studies on family and populat...

Rebalancing the brain:
Guiding brain recovery after stroke
ID: 263472
Start date: 2011-04-01, End date: 2016-03-31
Damage to parietal cortex after stroke causes patients to become unaware of large parts of their surroundings and body parts. This so-called spatial neglect is hypothesised to be brought about by a stroke-induced imbalance between the left and right hemisphere. Some patients ...

The here and the hereafter in Islamic traditions
ID: 263308
Start date: 2011-03-01, End date: 2015-04-30
The aim of this project is to write a history of the Muslim paradise and hell. Researchers (PI, RF and two doctoral researchers) will assess the extent to which Islamic traditions favour or reject a view of human existence as directed toward the otherworld. They will do so by...
