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...

Towards the dependable cloud:
Building the foundations for tomorrow's dependable cloud computing
ID: 307732
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-01-31
Cloud computing is being increasingly adopted by individuals, organizations, and governments. However, as the computations that are offloaded to the cloud expand to societal-critical services, the dependability requirements of cloud services become much higher, and we need to...

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...

Epithelial Resealing
[PROJECT] RESEAL - Epithelial Resealing
ID: 208631
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2014-10-31
Epithelia have the essential role of acting as a barrier that protects living organisms and its organs from the surrounding milieu. Therefore, it is crucial for epithelial tissues to have robust ways of maintaining its integrity despite the frequent damage caused by normal ce...

The dynamics of black holes:  testing the limits of Einstein's theory
ID: 256667
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
From astrophysics to high-energy physics and quantum gravity, black holes (BHs) have acquired an ever increasing role in fundamental physics, and are now part of the terminology of many important branches of theoretical and observational physics. It has been established that ...

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...

EXtra-solar planets and stellar astrophysics: towards the detection of Other Earths
ID: 239953
Start date: 2009-10-01, End date: 2014-12-31
The detection of more than 300 extrasolar planets orbiting other solar-like stars opened the window to a new field of astrophysics. Many projects to search for Earth-like planets are currently under way, using a huge battery of telescopes and instruments. New instrumentation ...

Advanced Amorphous Multicomponent Oxides for Transparent Electronics
ID: 228144
Start date: 2009-01-01, End date: 2014-12-31
Imagine having a fully transparent and flexible, foldable, low cost, displays or at the glass window of your home/office, a transparent electronic circuit, do you believe on that? Maybe you are asking me if I am writing science fiction. No I am not. In fact this is a very amb...

Role of the proto-oncogene Ret during lymphocyte development and function
ID: 207057
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2013-10-31
There is growing evidence that molecules classically allocated to nervous system function, such as the neurotrophic factors, are produced by lymphocytes and can also regulate their function. The neurotrophic family includes the GDNF ligands (GFLs), which signal through the RE...
