Fundamental dynamical processes near massive black holes in galactic nuclei
ID: 202996
Start date: 2008-09-01, End date: 2013-08-31
"I propose to combine analytical studies and simulations to explore fundamental open questions in the dynamics and statistical mechanics of stars near massive black holes. These directly affect key issues such as the rate of supply of single and binary stars to the black hole...

Mechanisms of Transcription Proofreading
ID: 202994
Start date: 2008-11-01, End date: 2013-10-31
Transcription, the copying of DNA into RNA, is the first step in the realisation of genetic information. RNA is either directly used by the cell or decoded into proteins during translation. The accuracy of transcription is thus essential for proper functioning of the cell. In...

Leptin, metabolic state and natural regulatory T cells: cellular and molecular basis for a novel immune intervention in autoimmunity
ID: 202579
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2011-10-31
Our Group has been investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms involving leptin, the adipocyte-derived hormone, in the pathogenesis of autoimmunity such as experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and multiple sclerosis (MS).We analyzed the serum and cerebro-sp...

Taking Force Microscopy into the Third Dimension
ID: 208792
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
I propose to pursue two emerging Force Microscopy techniques that allow measuring structural properties below the surface of the specimen. Whereas Force Microscopy (most commonly known under the name AFM) is usually limited to measuring the surface topography and surface prop...

Laser based photoemission: revolutionizing the spectroscopy of correlated electrons
ID: 207901
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
It is proposed to develop a novel instrument for angular resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (ARPES) by combining a laser based ultraviolet light source with a state-of-the-art electron spectrometer. This combination will be unique in Europe and will push this important techn...

Non-classical interacting random walks
ID: 208417
Start date: 2008-10-01, End date: 2014-09-30
The proposed project deals with various topics in the area of random walks (RWs) which interact with their own history and/or a possibly non-homogeneous, random environment. Such models arise from physics and other natural sciences as simplified models of complex phenomena an...

Coherence of Spins in Semiconductor Nanostructures
ID: 207599
Start date: 2008-06-01, End date: 2013-05-31
Macroscopic control of quantum states is a major theme in much of modern physics because quantum coherence enables study of fundamental physics and has promising applications for quantum information processing. The potential significance of quantum computing is recognized wel...

Study of Neutrino Oscillations at T2K
ID: 207282
Start date: 2009-03-01, End date: 2014-12-31
Neutrinos are among the most intriguing, least understood and probably most abundant particles in the Universe. The most exciting discovery of the last decade is that different neutrino types do change their identity as they propagate, suggesting that they are not strictly ma...

Reconciling Biodiversity and Development through Direct Payments for Conservation
ID: 206994
Start date: 2008-07-01, End date: 2012-09-30
This project will help to meet the vital need for empirical research into the theory and practice of Payments for Environmental Services (PES). PES approaches to conservation have become rapidly more popular in the last few years, driven by compelling evidence of their effect...

Expanding the horizons of magnetic resonance in sensitivity, imaging resolution, and availability
ID: 201665
Start date: 2008-08-01, End date: 2013-07-31
"We propose to develop and implement advanced magnetic resonance detection and micro-imaging techniques that will benefit many biophysical, chemical, physical, and medical applications. Magnetic resonance (MR) is one of the most profound observation methods in science. MR inc...
