Spatiotemporal regulation of chromosome segregation fidelity
ID: 260892
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
At any given moment, 250 million cells are dividing in the human body through an essential process known as mitosis. Inaccuracy of mitosis leads directly to aneuploidy (gain or loss of chromosomes), a hallmark of several cancers and birth defects. Mitotic fidelity is controll...

Microbial adaptation within ecosystems
ID: 260421
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
All natural populations are constantly subject to new mutations, and frequently face new environments, to which they adapt. Knowledge of the genetics of adaptation should provide the centerpiece of a unified theory of evolution. Despite its extreme importance, the process of ...

Differentiation of pro-inflammatory T cell subsets in vivo
ID: 260352
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-06-30
Our understanding of T cell differentiation impacts on vaccine development and on the treatment of (auto) immune disorders. T cells are key players in inflammation, a crucial component of the immune response to pathogens that causes severe damage to the host when uncontrolled...

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 ...

Forced labour: an Afro-European heritage in sub-Saharan Africa (1930-1975)?
ID: 240898
Start date: 2010-09-01, End date: 2015-02-28
This project analyses the structures of colonial systems of forced labour, in an attempt to come to a comparison of the different trajectories of African populations under distinct European administrations. Through the interpretation of case studies from different West Africa...

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...

Control of Centriole Structure And Number
[PROJECT] CENTRIOLSTRUCTNUMBER - Control of Centriole Structure And Number
ID: 261344
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
Centrioles are essential for the formation of several microtubule organizing structures including cilia, flagella and centrosomes. These structures are involved in a variety of functions, from cell motility to division. Centrosome defects are seen in many cancers, while abnor...

Quantum fields and knot homologies
[PROJECT] FIELDS-KNOTS - Quantum fields and knot homologies
ID: 335739
Start date: 2013-12-01, End date: 2018-11-30
This project is concerned with fundamental problems arising at the interface of quantum field theory, knot theory, and the theory of random matrices. The main aim of the project is to understand two of the most profound phenomena in physics and mathematics, namely quantizatio...

A novel solution to efficient Haematopoietic Stem Cell regeneration
ID: 620227
Start date: 2014-03-01, End date: 2015-02-28
There is an urgent need for improved expansion protocols for haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Many studies have tried to stimulate HSC expansion by experimenting with cytokine cocktails in cell culture media. Although these combinations of growth factors are able to increase...
