A radical approach for improved glaucoma treatment
ID: 322656
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-09-30
Open angle glaucoma (OAG) is the second leading cause of world blindness. Treatments involving topically applied pressure-reducing medications or surgery targeting ocular drainage channels are effective, although significant complications exist. We propose to address the hypo...

New Deals in the New Economy
[PROJECT] NEWDEALS - New Deals in the New Economy
ID: 283778
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2017-06-30
How are European workplaces being transformed? What kinds of new social bargains are emerging across the European Union? How are they being institutionalised? How are new workplace bargains shaped by the broader politics of sectors, regions and national economies? These quest...

RETURN – Rethinking Tunnelling in Urban Neighbourhoods
ID: 307836
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
This project addresses important challenges at the forefront of geotechnical engineering and building conservation by introducing an entirely new workflow and largely unexploited data source for the predic-tion of building damage from tunnel-induced subsidence. The project wi...

Enrichment of macular pigment, and its impact on vision and blindness
ID: 281096
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in the developed world. The macula, the central part of the retina, is responsible for optimal spatial vision. There is a growing body of evidence that a lack of a dietary pigment at the macula, known as...

Quantitative electron and spin transport theory for organic crystals based devices
ID: 307891
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-11-30
Predicting the electron and spin transport properties of organic crystals is a formidable theoretical challenge as these are determined both by the electronic structure of the individual molecules and by the morphology of the crystal. Quest's research program seeks at develop...

Next Generation of 2D-Nanomaterials: Enabling Supercapacitor Development
ID: 278516
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Climate change and the decreasing availability of fossil fuels require society to move towards sustainable and renewable resources. 2DNanoCaps will focus on electrochemical energy storage, specifically supercapacitors. In terms of performance supercapacitors fill up the gap b...

Programmed and unprogrammed genomic rearrangements during the evolution of yeast species
ID: 268893
Start date: 2011-06-01, End date: 2016-05-31
By detailed evolutionary comparisons among multiple sequenced yeast genomes, we have identified several unusual regions where our preliminary evidence suggests that previously unknown molecular biology phenomena, involving rearrangement of genomic DNA, are occurring. I now pr...

An exploration into the role of microRNAs in innate immune signaling
ID: 268155
Start date: 2011-06-01, End date: 2016-05-31
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important regulators of both innate and adaptive immunity. This is very much a frontier area since little is known about miRNA function in vivo, and there is still much discovery to be done. Their emerging functions indicate that they are as potent as c...

Dosage sensitive genes in evolution and disease
ID: 309834
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
Evolutionary change of gene copy number through gene duplication is a relatively pervasive phenomenon in eukaryotic genomes. However, for a subset of genes such changes are deleterious because they result in imbalances in the cell. Such dosage-sensitive genes have been increa...

Analysis of Biofilm Mediated Fouling of Nanofiltration Membranes
ID: 278530
Start date: 2011-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
1.2 billion people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. Drinking water quality is threatened by newly emerging organic micro-pollutants (pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals) in source waters. Nanofiltration is a technology that is expected to play a key...
