Positioning the nucleus for cell migration and muscle fiber function
ID: 617676
Start date: 2014-07-01, End date: 2019-06-30
The cell nucleus is positioned at specific places within the cytoplasm and this position is important for different cellular, developmental and physiological processes. Nuclear positioning depends on connections between nuclear envelope proteins and the cytoskeleton. In migra...

Nutrient sensing by parasites
[PROJECT] PARASITENUTRISENSING - Nutrient sensing by parasites
ID: 311502
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2017-11-30
As any other obligate parasite, Plasmodium depends on its hosts and on the nutrients they provide to survive and complete its life cycle. Surprisingly, nothing is know about Plasmodium’s capacity to sense nutrients or its host’s nutritional status and thereby reprogram its me...

A study on the interaction among natural selection, mutation and recombination, with Caenorhabditis elegans experimental evolution
ID: 243285
Start date: 2010-02-01, End date: 2016-01-31
The process of adaptation to novel environments is of extraordinary importance to understand the existence of biological diversity. The development of a theory of adaptation during the last 150 years identified natural selection as its cause, and the conditions under which it...

Purely-elastic flow instabilities and transition to elastic turbulence in microscale flows of complex fluids
ID: 307499
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-01-31
Flows of complex fluids, such as many biological fluids and most synthetic fluids, are common in our daily life and are very important from an industrial perspective. Because of their inherent nonlinearity, the flow of complex viscoelastic fluids often leads to counterintuiti...

Optogenetic Analysis of Serotonin Function in the Mammalian Brain
ID: 250334
Start date: 2010-07-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Serotonin (5-HT) is implicated in a wide spectrum of brain functions and disorders. However, its functions remain controversial and enigmatic. We suggest that past work on the 5-HT system have been significantly hampered by technical limitations in the selectivity and tempora...
