A Functional Architecture of the Brain for Vision
ID: 339374
Start date: 2014-07-01, End date: 2020-06-30
We are visual animals. Seeing is our prime means for probing the outside world. Although vision appears effortless, we dedicate about a quarter of our most precious organ to this most prominent of all senses. The primary objective of this research programme is to develop a ri...

A new paradigm in modelling flow and transport in porous media: revisiting foundations of porous media science
ID: 341225
Start date: 2013-09-01, End date: 2019-08-31
Our models of fluid-filled porous media are based on ad-hoc extensions of relatively simple equations. But, in almost all cases, they have failed to provide acceptable descriptions of complex porous media. In petroleum engineering, we are not able to predict the true reservoi...

The Peformance of Democracies
[PROJECT] PERDEM - The Peformance of Democracies
ID: 339571
Start date: 2014-05-01, End date: 2019-04-30
This project will use an institutional approach to answer the question why some democracies perform better than others. Democratic systems can be institutionalized in innumerous ways given variation in for example party system, electoral system, type of public administration,...

Structure function and pharmacology of calcium-activated chloride channels: Anoctamins and Bestrophins
ID: 339116
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2020-01-31
Calcium-activated chloride channels (CaCCs) play key roles in a range of physiological processes such as the control of membrane excitability, photoreception and epithelial secretion. Although the importance of these channels has been recognized for more than 30 years their m...

Unraveling sex determination and parthenocarpy mechanisms to improve crops
ID: 341076
Start date: 2014-04-01, End date: 2020-03-31
In the last century, the use of high-yielding F1-hybrid varieties, mechanization and irrigation have insured yield improvement for major crops. In the post-genomic era, one would expect that the discovery and the optimization of the gene networks controlling key agronomic tra...

Development and Application of Novel Technologies for Structure Determination
ID: 339995
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-01-31
Structure determination of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) has been exceedingly successful over the last 5 years due to the development of complimentary generic methodologies that will now allow the structure determination of virtually any GPCR. However, these technologie...
