Ploidy change as a rapid mechanism of adaptation
ID: 340087
Start date: 2014-01-01, End date: 2019-12-31
Fungi are particularly challenging pathogens; because they and their human hosts are eukaryotes. We will study how new traits such as drugR arise rapidly using Candida albicans, the most prevalent fungal pathogen of humans. The work explores the ground-breaking concept that a...

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...

Ultracold Quantum Matter
[PROJECT] UQUAM - Ultracold Quantum Matter
ID: 319278
Start date: 2013-07-01, End date: 2019-06-30
Quantum mechanics is the basis of our understanding of the microscopic world. It is also central to the collective behaviour of matter at low temperatures, leading to unique properties that defy our classical intuition. The comprehension of such ‘quantum matter’ and the abili...

High-resolution tweezers for DNA replication and sequence identification
ID: 267862
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
We propose to investigate the enzymes responsible for DNA replication and repair in micromanipulation experiments with a resolution of a single base. The detailed mechanism by which DNA is synthesized base after base and the coordination of the enzymes involved in this proces...

MEMS made Electron Emission Membranes
ID: 320764
Start date: 2013-02-01, End date: 2018-01-31
We propose a radically new and generic type of detector for photons, electrons and energetic charged particles: a stacked set of curved miniature dynodes in vacuum, created through MicroMechanical Electronic Systems (MEMS) fabrication techniques on top of a state-of-the-art C...

Role of ncRNAs in Chromatin and Transcription
ID: 268569
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2017-04-30
The human genome is highly transcribed, with over 90% of sequences contributing to the production of RNA. The function of the vast majority of these RNAs is unknown. Evidence over many years has revealed that transcription factors and chromatin regulators are associated with ...

Evolutionary reconstruction of viral spread in time and space
ID: 260864
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2015-09-30
To identify the causal mechanisms leading to disease emergence, endemic maintenance and epidemic expansion, epidemiologists would benefit tremendously from a full characterization of pathogen spread in space and time. The extensive sequencing efforts for the ongoing swine-ori...

Past hurricane activity reconstructed using cave deposits: Have humans increased storm risk?
ID: 240167
Start date: 2010-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
The proposed research would utilise various geochemical proxies (oxygen, carbon, and trace elements) in cave calcite deposits (stalagmites) to develop extraordinarily high-resolution North Atlantic hurricane activity records for the past five hundred years, extending existing...

Physics Beyond the Standard Model at the LHC and with Atom Interferometers
ID: 228169
Start date: 2009-05-01, End date: 2014-04-30
Elementary particle physics is entering a spectacular new era in which experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN will soon start probing some of the deepest questions in physics, such as: Why is gravity so weak? Do elementary particles have substructure? What is ...

"Philosophers divide the problem of consciousness into two parts: An “easy” part, which involves explaining how one can become aware of something in the sense of being able to make use of it in one's rational behavior. And a “hard” part, which involves explaining why certain ...
