Molecular mechanisms controlling X chromosome inactivation
ID: 260587
Start date: 2011-04-01, End date: 2016-03-31
In mammals, gene dosage of X-chromosomal genes is equalized between sexes by random inactivation of either one of the two X chromosomes in female cells. In the initial phase of X chromosome inactivation (XCI), a counting and initiation process determines the number of X chrom...

Celiac disease: from lincRNAs to disease mechanism
ID: 322698
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-11-30
Celiac disease affects at least 1% of the world population. Its onset is triggered by gluten, a common dietary protein, however, its etiology is poorly understood. More than 80% of patients are not properly diagnosed and they therefore do not follow a gluten-free diet, thereb...

Neither visitors, nor colonial victims: Muslims in Interwar Europe and European Trans-cultural History
ID: 336608
Start date: 2014-06-01, End date: 2019-05-31
"No comprehensive attempt has yet been made to cover the history of Muslims in interwar Europe. Historians of the modern Middle East underestimate the role of interwar Muslim actors in writing a history of Islam, whereas historians of Europe underestimate their role in intra-...

Social Network Implementation of Health Campaigns Among Youth
ID: 617253
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2019-08-31
Western societies devote substantial resources to media health campaigns, especially targeting young people. Unfortunately, health campaigns often have disappointing impact. There is a compelling need for insight into campaign implementation in social life. Especially among y...

Charting the Digital: Digital Mapping Practices as New Media Cultures
ID: 283464
Start date: 2011-11-01, End date: 2016-10-31
Maps have changed and with that our sense of space and spatial awareness. The key objective of this research programme is to develop a framework for the conceptualization of digital maps as new techno-cultural phenomena. Digital maps allow a greater degree of interaction betw...

The Cellular Basis of Multicellular Pattern Formation
ID: 281573
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
The formation of plant organs (leaves, roots, flowers) depends on the activity of stem cells (SC), located in stem cell niches (meristems) together with adjoining organizer cells (OC) that prevent SC differentiation. Despite their importance, SC and OC have been poorly descri...

Electrochemistry in fluidic nanodevices: From fundamentals to integrated sensor platforms
ID: 278801
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
I propose to explore the frontiers of electrochemistry at the nanometer scale by developing new experimental approaches based on lithographically fabricated fluidic nanodevices. This will allow groundbreaking experiments on a broad range of fundamental topics including double...

Transnational Private-Public Arbitration as Global Regulatory Governance: Charting and Codifying the Lex Mercatoria Publica
ID: 313355
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2019-02-28
The proposed research will analyze the rising phenomenon of transnational arbitrations between private economic actors and public law bodies as a mechanism of global regulatory governance. It breaks with the prevailing view that arbitration involves no more than settling indi...

Cracking the Cerebellar Code
ID: 294775
Start date: 2012-04-01, End date: 2017-03-31
Spike trains transfer information to and from neurons. Most studies so far assume that the average firing rate or “rate coding” is the predominant way of information coding. However, spikes occur at millisecond precision, and their actual timing or “temporal coding” can in pr...

Science Friction
[PROJECT] SCIFRI - Science Friction
ID: 268094
Start date: 2011-07-01, End date: 2016-06-30
"There is no fundamental law that dictates the necessity of losing energy in a sliding contact. In spite of its apparent simplicity, we have a relatively poor understanding of the mechanisms that determine how energy is lost when two bodies are forced to slide over one anothe...
