Genetics and epigenetics of animal welfare
ID: 322206
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Animal welfare is a topic of highest societal and scientific priority. Here, I propose to use genomic and epigenetic tools to provide a new perspective on the biology of animal welfare. This will reveal mechanisms involved in modulating stress responses. Groundbreaking aspect...

developmental social Cognition and ACTion UnderStanding
ID: 312292
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
Humans are social creatures throughout life. This proposal aims to advance our knowledge of the mechanisms that mediate understanding of others’ actions from a developmental perspective. A special emphasis will be devoted to mirror neuron and teleological frameworks. The form...

Sequence based strategies to identify genetic variation associated with mental retardation and schizophrenia
ID: 282330
Start date: 2012-08-01, End date: 2017-07-31
Mental retardation (MR) and schizophrenia (SCZ) are disorders of the brain that affect 2-3% and 1% of the population, respectively. Both disorders are considered to be highly heritable, but exhibit heterogeneous genetic etiology. Recent genetic studies have led to discoveries...

NOVEL STRATEGIES FOR BRAIN REGENERATION
ID: 282220
Start date: 2012-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
In contrast to mammals, newts possess exceptional capacities among vertebrates to rebuild complex structures, such as the brain. Our goal is to bridge the gap in the regenerative outcomes between newts and mammals. My group has made significant contributions towards this goal...

Quantum simulations with trapped Rydberg ions
ID: 279508
Start date: 2012-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
This project focuses on the realization and application of trapped Rydberg ions for quantum information processing and quantum simulation. It will bring together two prospective quantum computational systems: trapped ions and Rydberg atoms. Joining them will form a novel quan...

Nitride-based nanostructured novel thermoelectric thin-film materials
ID: 335383
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2018-09-30
My recent discovery of the anomalously high thermoelectric power factor of ScN thin films demonstrates that unexpected thermoelectric materials can be found among the early transition-metal and rare-earth nitrides. Corroborated by first-principles calculations, we have well-f...

Improved Diagnosis and Management of Heart Disease by 4D Blood Flow Assessment
ID: 310612
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
The primary purpose of the cardiovascular system is to drive, control and maintain blood flow to all parts of the body. Despite the primacy of flow, cardiac diagnostics still rely almost exclusively on tools focused on morphological assessment. The objective of the HEART4FLOW...

Organic Thermoelectric Generators
ID: 307596
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-03-31
At the moment, there is no viable technology to produce electricity from natural heat sources (T<200°C) and from 50% of the waste heat (electricity production, industries, buildings and transports) stored in large volume of warm fluids (T<200°C). To extract heat from large vo...

Prescriptive Prescriptions: Pharmaceuticals and  Healthy  Subjectivities
ID: 263657
Start date: 2011-08-01, End date: 2016-07-31
This research asks how pharmaceuticals prescribe the healthy subject. It examines the cultural meanings and expectations attached to four prescription drugs, and compares the policies and practices around their use in two countries, Sweden and the UK. Empirically, it studies ...
