Adipocyte Differentiation and Metabolic Functions in Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes
ID: 205641
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Obesity associated disorders such as T2D, hypertension and CVD, commonly referred to as the “metabolic syndrome”, are prevalent diseases of industrialized societies. Deranged adipose tissue proliferation and differentiation contribute significantly to the development of these...

Molecularly targeted therapy for T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia
ID: 205252
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2013-09-30
T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) is an aggressive T cell malignancy that is most common in children and adolescents. Our current understanding of the molecular genetics of T-ALL indicates that leukemic transformation of thymocytes is caused by the cooperation of mu...

Olfactory perception in Drosophila: analysis of a novel iGluR-related family of odorant receptors
ID: 205202
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2013-06-30
Chemosensory systems permit organisms to perceive diverse chemicals in the environment signalling the presence of food, dangers, kin or mates. How a specific chemical stimulus is recognised and converted into neural activity that provokes the appropriate behaviour is a fundam...

Renal stem cells: possible role in kidney pathologies and as new theraputic tools
ID: 205027
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2012-09-30
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) affects 11% of the adult population and is considered by the WHO as one of the health emergencies of the 21st century. Although cell therapy might be beneficial for CKD, human stem cells that might be used to improve kidney function were so far un...

Aberrant gene expression and muscular dystrophy: role of non-coding RNAs and alternative splicing in the pathogenesis and potential therapies
ID: 204279
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
Our goal is to characterize the molecular pathogenesis of facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) in order to develop possible therapeutic approaches. FSHD is the third most important myopathy. Currently, no therapeutic treatment is available for FSHD. Unlike the majori...

Self-Modulating Neurons in the Cerebral Cortex: From Molecular Mechanisms to Cortical Network Activities
ID: 200808
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2014-03-31
In the mammalian brain, the neocortex is the site where sensory information is integrated into complex cognitive functions. This is accomplished by the activity of both principal glutamatergic neurons and locally-projecting inhibitory GABAergic interneurons, interconnected in...

Neural Basis of Olfactory Perception in Drosophila
ID: 211089
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
In insects the axons of primary olfactory receptor neurons terminate in specific glomeruli in the antennal lobe. Second order neurons relay this information to two higher olfactory centres, the mushroom body and the lateral horn, the special focus of this proposal. Functional...

Plasticity of the Empathic Brain: Structural and Functional MRI Studies on the Effect of Empathy Training on the Human Brain and Prosocial Behaviour
ID: 205557
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2014-08-31
Social neuroscientists study the neural mechanisms underlying our capacity to understand our own and other people’s feelings. Despite neuroscientists’ advances in plasticity research and empathy research, little is known about cortical and behavioural plasticity in emotion un...

Human reaching and grasping - cognitive networks of visual action control
ID: 211078
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
Cognitive Neuroscience throughout the last decade was dominated by a two stream model of visual processing. A ventral pathway was presumed to be dedicated to perception-related processing. A dorsal pathway was presumed to be dedicated to action-related processing. The propose...

Subretinal Microglia accumulation play a decisive role in the development of Age-related Macular Degeneration
ID: 210345
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of vision loss in the Europe. New anti-angiogenic therapies of AMD do not treat the neurodegenerative aspect of AMD. Recent evidence suggests an implication of inflammatory mediators in AMD. We have focused our inter...
