From Silicosis to Chronic Respiratory diseases: an approach via epidemiological history (in France, Europe, Southern Africa, from the 1900s until today)
ID: 295817
Start date: 2012-06-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Silicosis, a pathology caused by the inhalation of crystalline silica dust, is the deadly occupational disease in history. Contrary to what some may think, it does not belong to a remote past as it struck massively in the 20th century and is still present in industrial societ...

Freezing Colloids
[PROJECT] FREECO - Freezing Colloids
ID: 278004
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
The freezing of colloids is an amazingly common phenomenon encountered in many natural and engineering processes such as the freezing of soils, food engineering or cryobiology. It can also be used as a bioinspired, versatile and environmentally-friendly processing route for b...

Constructing Mathematical Knowledge beyond Core Intuitions
ID: 263179
Start date: 2011-04-01, End date: 2016-08-31
Humans and other animals possess dedicated systems of core knowledge to represent numeric and geometric information. In the case of number at least, these representations are abstract (independent of the format of the stimuli represented), they are present early in life, and ...

Dynamics and Homeostasis of Germinal Zones in the Adult Vertebrate Brain
ID: 322936
Start date: 2013-09-01, End date: 2019-08-31
Neural stem cells (NSCs) are self-renewing and multipotent progenitors generating neurons and glia in the adult vertebrate brain. The success of NSC maintenance and mobilization varies widely among species, brain territories, pathological conditions and individual environment...

Search for a fourth neutrino with a PBq anti-neutrino source
ID: 307184
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-09-30
Several observed anomalies in neutrino oscillation data can be explained by a hypothetical fourth neutrino separated from the three standard neutrinos by a squared mass difference of a few eV2. This hypothesis can be tested with a PBq (ten kilocurie scale) 144Ce antineutrino ...

Single active dopant detection in semiconductor nanowires using electron holography
ID: 306535
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-07-31
"The end of ""happy scaling"" in the semiconductor industry has lead to innovation being a key parameter in nanoelectronics. Doped nanowires of all types of sizes, shapes and composition are now used as components to build nano-electronic devices, light sources, detectors and...

Analysing and Modelling the Geographical Diversity of Cities and Systems of Cities
ID: 269826
Start date: 2011-06-01, End date: 2016-05-31
Cities are today the main form of occupation of the Earth’s surface by human societies, and their development, combining design and self-organisation, sets numerous challenges in terms of collective territorial intelligence. On the scale of national and continent-wide territo...

Epigenetic challenges in centromere inheritance during the cell cycle
ID: 249994
Start date: 2010-06-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Studies concerning the mechanism of DNA replication have advanced our understanding of genetic transmission through multiple cell cycles. Recent work has shed light on possible means to ensure the stable transmission of information beyond just DNA and the concept of epigeneti...

Evolution of gene mobility: how mobile elements shape the function and sociality of microbial communities
ID: 281605
Start date: 2012-07-01, End date: 2017-12-31
Prokaryotes evolve rapidly new functionalities by horizontal gene transfer delivered by mobile genetic elements (MGE). MGE increase relatedness between individuals and thereby might also promote the establishment of microbial social networks. Many studies have detailed the dy...
