Health, environmental change and adaptive capacity: mapping, examining and anticipating future risks of water-related vector-borne diseases in eastern Africa
ID: 266327
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2014-12-31
The HEALTHY FUTURES project is motivated by concern for the health impacts of environmental changes. HEATHLY FUTURES aims to respond to this concern through construction of a disease risk mapping system for three water-related high-impact VBDs (malaria, Rift valley fever and ...

Integration of Chikungunya research
ID: 261202
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2014-11-30
Since 2005 Chikungunya fever has affected millions of people producing a high fever and a debilitating arthralgia which can persist for months and progress to chronic arthritis. Chikungunya virus has been associated with periodic outbreaks of human disease and is spread by mo...

Understanding computational roles of new neurons generated in the adult hippocampus
ID: 208132
Start date: 2009-01-01, End date: 2013-12-31
New neurons are continuously generated in certain regions of adult mammalian brain. One of those regions is the dentate gyrus, a subregion of hippocampus, which is essential for memory formation. Although these new neurons in the adult dentate gyrus are thought to have an imp...

Innovative tools and strategies for surveillance and control of dengue
ID: 282589
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2016-04-30
Current surveillance systems and control efforts are clearly insufficient to combat dengue in endemic countries and to prevent spread to previously uninfected areas (including Europe). We will focus on the following aspects of the call: better diagnosis, surveillance, prevent...

Silencing RNAs: organisers and coordinators of complexity in eukaryotic organisms
ID: 37900
Start date: 2007-01-01, End date: 2011-09-30
A recently discovered layer of gene regulation in eukaryotic organisms employs small regulatory RNAs (miRNAs and siRNAs). These RNAs are 20-28 nucleotides long and are produced by Dicer ribonucleases acting on double-stranded RNA precursors. Together with an effector protein c...

Consortium for Research into Nuclear Receptors in Development and Aging
ID: 18652
Start date: 2006-03-01, End date: 2011-08-31
Nuclear receptors function throughout development and aging as molecular integrators of complex physiological regulations, such as growth, reproduction and metabolism. To translate genetic knowledge from the Human Genome into therapy requires intimate understanding of fundamen...

European stroke prevention in reversible ischaemia trial (ESPRIT)
ID: QLK6-CT-2002-02332
Start date: 2003-01-01, End date: 2006-12-31
Patients who have had a transient is haemic attack or no disabling is haemic stroke of arterial origin have an annual risk of 7 to 12 % for subsequent nonfatal stroke, nonfatal myocardial infarction or death (from all vascular causes) without treatment. The standard treatment ...
