Arctic Sea Ice and Greenland Ice Sheet Sensitivity
ID: 610055
Start date: 2014-08-01, End date: 2019-07-31
The cryosphere is in fast transition. The possibility that the ongoing rapid demise of Arctic sea ice may instigate abrupt changes on the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) is not tackled by current research. Ice cores from the GIS show clear evidence of past abrupt warm events,up to ...

COELIAC DISEASE: UNDERSTANDING HOW A FOREIGN PROTEIN DRIVES AUTOANTIBODY FORMATION
ID: 268541
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2017-04-30
The goal of this project is to understand the mechanism of how highly disease specific autoantibodies are generated in response to the exposure to a foreign antigen. IgA autoantibodies reactive with the enzyme transglutaminase 2 (TG2) are typical of coeliac disease (CD). Thes...

Novel Tools for Early Childhood Predisposition to Obesity
ID: 293574
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2018-08-31
An estimated 22 million children worldwide under age five are overweight. In these children, obesity is a primary indicator for development of type 2 diabetes and possibly cancer. I present a research program, SELECTionPREDISPOSED, to identify novel obesity-risk genes as tool...

A New Paradigm for Public Health Surveillance: Unlocking the Potential of Data to Empower Women and Health Systems
ID: 617639
Start date: 2014-09-01, End date: 2019-08-31
Rationale: State of the art health registries, cornerstones of public health surveillance, have hardly capitalized on the information and communication technology revolution. Many continue to be static, fragmented, and passive data repositories disseminating outdated reports ...

Emergence and decline of constructive memory – Life-span changes in a common brain network for imagination and episodic memory
ID: 283634
Start date: 2012-02-01, End date: 2017-01-31
The creation of personal, episodic memory from a previous experience is a remarkably complex process, which substantially differs from the processes leading to non-personal knowledge and memory about the world, so-called semantic memory. The act of remembering an episodic eve...

Theoretical multiphoton spectroscopy for understanding surfaces and interfaces
ID: 279619
Start date: 2011-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
The project will develop new methods for calculating nonlinear spectroscopic properties, both in the electronic as well as in the vibrational domain. The methods will be used to study molecular interactions at interfaces, allowing for a direct comparison of experimental obser...

The Legitimacy of Multi-level Human Rights Judiciary
ID: 269841
Start date: 2011-06-01, End date: 2016-05-31
The proliferation of human rights treaties at regional and global levels may offer moral foundations for international law. However, many worry that this growth of supervisory organs is illegitimate. Consider, for instance • The European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) is overb...

General Institutional Equilibrium
- theory and policy implications
ID: 283236
Start date: 2012-07-01, End date: 2016-06-30
Existing institutional theory, including political economics and contract theory, convincingly show that institutional details have large impacts on economic and policy outcomes. Once this is recognized, it follows that contracts should depend on the organisational design of ...

Physics of the Solar Chromosphere
[PROJECT] CHROMPHYS - Physics of the Solar Chromosphere
ID: 291058
Start date: 2012-01-01, End date: 2016-12-31
CHROMPHYS aims at a breakthrough in our understanding of the solar chromosphere by combining the development of sophisticated radiation-magnetohydrodynamic simulations with observations from the upcoming NASA SMEX mission Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS). The enig...

Stochastic Population Biology in a Fluctuating Environment
ID: 268562
Start date: 2011-05-01, End date: 2016-04-30
The aim of this project is to produce a new synthesis integrating ecological and evolutionary processes. This synthetic approach is based on the fundamental premise that the effects of environmental stochasticity are essential for the understanding of biological processes at ...
