Evolution of olfactory circuits
[PROJECT] EVONEURO - Evolution of olfactory circuits
ID: 615094
Start date: 2014-06-01, End date: 2019-05-31
"Nervous systems have undergone remarkable diversification in their structure and function as animals have adapted to distinct ecological niches. What are the genetic mechanisms underlying neural circuit evolution? The project addresses this fundamental question in the Drosop...

A systems pharmacology approach to the discovery of novel therapeutics in Alzheimer´s disease
ID: 614944
Start date: 2014-04-01, End date: 2019-03-31
Alzheimer´s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, with over 35 million people suffering from it worldwide, and it constitutes a personal and societal tragedy of immense proportions. Fifty years of intense research have revealed many key elements of the biology of ...

Nanophotonic Nanomechanical Mass Spectrometry for Biology and Health
ID: 616251
Start date: 2014-06-01, End date: 2020-05-31
« Mass Spectrometry has become a routine analytical tool in modern biological research, and has gained in recent years a foothold in the realm of clinical diagnostic and screening. However, it is still costly, complex and because its principle relies on ionization, it is inca...

Roads and the politics of thought: Ethnographic approaches to infrastructure development in South Asia
ID: 616393
Start date: 2015-02-01, End date: 2020-01-31
New roads are being constructed at unprecedented rates in certain parts of the world. The proposed research will ask: Why? To what end? Who benefits? What ideas lie in the foundations of this new infrastructure? Roads are presented as solutions to poverty, ‘development’ and e...

A New Paradigm for Public Health Surveillance: Unlocking the Potential of Data to Empower Women and Health Systems
ID: 617639
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2019-08-31
Rationale: State of the art health registries, cornerstones of public health surveillance, have hardly capitalized on the information and communication technology revolution. Many continue to be static, fragmented, and passive data repositories disseminating outdated reports ...

Defining the cellular dynamics leading to tissue expansion
ID: 616333
Start date: 2014-06-01, End date: 2019-05-31
Stem cells (SCs) ensure the development of the different tissues during morphogenesis, their physiological turnover during adult life and tissue repair after injuries. . Our lab has recently developed new methods to study by lineage tracing the cellular hierarchy that sustain...

Social Network Implementation of Health Campaigns Among Youth
ID: 617253
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2019-08-31
Western societies devote substantial resources to media health campaigns, especially targeting young people. Unfortunately, health campaigns often have disappointing impact. There is a compelling need for insight into campaign implementation in social life. Especially among y...

New isotope tracers for core formation in terrestrial planets
ID: 616564
Start date: 2014-02-01, End date: 2019-10-31
This proposal aims to develop new isotopic tools designed to constrain the core formation process in the Earth. We will use isotopic fractionations imparted by metal-silicate equilibration during core formation to obtain new and firm constraints on (i) the physical and chemic...

Specificity of translational control during unfolded protein response
ID: 617837
Start date: 2014-03-01, End date: 2019-02-28
Unfolded protein response (UPR) is activated by multiple types of cellular stress, and can promote either cell survival or apoptosis. The balance between these opposing outcomes is delicately regulated, and when lost, contributes to diverse diseases. UPR enables cells to halt...

Biophysical networks underlying the robustness of neuronal excitability
ID: 616827
Start date: 2014-05-01, End date: 2019-04-30
The mammalian nervous system is in some respect surprisingly robust to perturbations, as suggested by the virtually complete recovery of brain function after strokes or the pre-clinical asymptomatic phase of Parkinson’s disease. Ultimately though, cognitive and behavioral rob...
