Simulation of the Kinetics and Inverse Problem
for the Protein PolymERization
in Amyloid Diseases (Prion, Alzheimer’s)
ID: 306321
Start date: 2012-12-01, End date: 2018-07-31
Amyloid diseases are of increasing concern in our aging society. These diseases all involve the aggregation of misfolded proteins, called amyloid, which are specific for each disease (PrP for Prion, Abeta for Alzheimer's). When misfolded these proteins propagate the abnormal ...

Critical phenomena in random matrix theory and integrable systems
ID: 307074
Start date: 2012-08-01, End date: 2017-07-31
The main goal of the project is to create a research group on critical phenomena in random matrix theory and integrable systems at the Université Catholique de Louvain, where the PI was recently appointed. Random matrix ensembles, integrable partial differential equations and...

Magnonics Using Spin Torque, spin caloritronics, And Nanoplasmonic engineerinG
ID: 307144
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
My overall aim is to develop a Magnonic technology platform where Spintronic, Spin-Caloritronic and Nano-plasmonic devices and structures combine to create ground-breaking functionality from novel interactions between charge, spin, heat and light. With traditional Magnonic st...

Laser-engineered Biomimetic Matrices with Embedded Cells
ID: 307701
Start date: 2013-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Traditional 2D cell culture systems used in biology do not accurately reproduce the 3D structure, function, or physiology of living tissue. Resulting behaviour and responses of cells are substantially different from those observed within natural extracellular matrices (ECM). ...

Harnessing Proto-Enzymes for Novel Catalytic Functions
ID: 306474
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Enzymes are Nature’s catalysts, reducing the timescales of the chemical reactions that drive life from millions of years to seconds. There is also great scope for enzymes as biocatalysts outside the cell, from therapeutic and synthetic applications, to bioremediation and even...

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...

Gain-endowed metallic meta-structures and devices: 
towards a unification of photonics and electronics
ID: 306661
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2018-06-30
This research project aims at building a common framework for photonic and meta-material /electronic devices. As specific examples, we will focus on making key advances for THz and mid-infrared emitters and detectors. Our goal is to demonstrate device functionalities which ca...

Ab initio Dynamical Vertex Approximation
ID: 306447
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-07-31
Some of the most fascinating physical phenomena are experimentally observed in strongly correlated electron systems and, on the theoretical side, only poorly understood hitherto. The aim of the ERC project AbinitioDGA is the development, implementation and application of a ne...

Visual Recognition of Function and Intention
ID: 307574
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
"Computer vision is concerned with the automated interpretation of images and video streams. Today's research is (mostly) aimed at answering queries such as ""Is this a picture of a dog?"", (classification) or sometimes ""Find the dog in this photo"" (detection). While catego...

Self-Enforcing E-Voting System: Trustworthy Election in Presence of Corrupt Authorities
ID: 306994
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2018-12-31
"This project aims to develop a new generation of e-voting called the “self-enforcing e-voting system”. The new system does not depend on any trusted authorities, which is different from all currently existing or proposed e-voting schemes. This has several compelling advantag...
