Chemical Reaction Networks: signal amplification, spatiotemporal control, and materials

Risultati finali

Short articles in newspapers, magazines, newsletter, etc. online

UNISTRA will collect interesting results gathered by all ESR's and encourage all beneficiaries to engage to disseminate in popular media such as newspapers, magazines, etc.

Full Implementation of mentoring system

The TTC headed by the TC (Aldo JESORKA, CHALMERS) will make sure the mentoring program is implemented. Specifically, each ESR will be assigned a second mentor from a different node in addition to their direct local supervisor to broaden possible guidance during the research tasks. Bi-annual (during the scheduled ESR gatherings or more if necessary; see Gantt chart) meetings between the ESR, supervisor, and mentor will take place, during which the ESR will present detailed progress reports. During these meetings, overall progress of the research project, secondments programme, and complementary skills of the ESR fellow will be evaluated, and progress will be monitored based on the PCDP drafted at the start of the ESR project. All graduate schools also have arrangements in place for problem solving, including mediators, should conflicts arise.

Website: ESR profiles and projects online

The Creanet website should be fully operational. It will be hosted at and

Social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) operational

All social media accounts should be functional.

ETN Open doors event (during summer school at USFD)

An evening ETN OPEN DOORS event with a keynote lecture aiming at the general public will be open to the general public. The ESRs can put their skills on communication to test and will present posters representing the scope of the ETN, ETNs in general, and the four scientific and training work packages. Again, the ESRs will be reminded of the CReaNet Communication Strategy.

Summer school

CRN modelling/design and further professional development (USFD): This will be a five-day summer school organised by USFD with local speakers and externally invited speakers, e.g., Christophe Flamm, Harold Fellerman, and Raphael Plasson. Taylor (USFD) was one of the lecturers at the Systems Chemistry Summer School as part of COST action (CM1304); she has taught modules involving CRN modelling and currently leads the 2nd year laboratory module at USFD, delivering computational modelling workshops to 180 undergraduates. She was also on the advisory board of Chaos (an AIP journal). Therefore, she is well placed to organise this summer school, which is intended for newcomers to CRN modelling/design and will comprise a series of lectures and workshops where students will solve problems in groups using available software. It will be open to non-Network members and will host 15 ESRs + 16 external applicants. The aims of the sessions are: i) to introduce students to the tools available for modeling chemical reaction networks, ii) to provide insight into how to build reaction network models for certain types of behaviour, iii) to explore methods for finding behaviour, and iv) to give experience in parameter estimation and kinetic data fitting. The topics covered will include: Solving ODEs, integration methods; Kinetics: mass-action, Michaelis-Menten etc.; Reaction network design and behaviour (oscillations etc.); Signal response curves; DNA based systems; Stochastic modelling; Reaction diffusion systems and PDEs; Data fitting.
