Dynamics of Supersymmetry in Curved Space
ID: 639220
Start date: 2015-09-01, End date: 2020-08-31
Quantum field theory provides a theoretical framework to explain quantitatively natural phenomena as diverse as the fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background, superconductivity, and elementary particle interactions in colliders. Even if we use quantum field theories in...

Molecularly defined models of human childhood brain tumors
ID: 640275
Start date: 2015-05-01, End date: 2020-04-30
MYC proteins like MYC and MYCN are transcription factors that are mis-regulated in more than half of all types of human cancer including medulloblastoma, the most common brain malignancy in children. The two main challenges that can guide research in the field of pediatric...

Cholesterol and Sugar Uptake Mechanisms
ID: 637372
Start date: 2015-07-01, End date: 2020-06-30
Cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer have a dramatic impact on modern society, and in great part are related to uptake of cholesterol and sugar. We still know surprisingly little about the molecular details of the processes that goes on in this essential part of human...

Measurement-based dynamic control of mesoscopic many-body systems
ID: 639560
Start date: 2015-05-01, End date: 2020-04-30
Quantum control is an ambitious framework for steering dynamics from initial states to arbitrary desired final states. It has over the past decade been used extensively with immense success for control of low- dimensional systems in as varied fields as molecular dynamics and...

Is your heart aging well? A systems biology approach to characterize cardiac aging from the cell to the body surface
ID: 638284
Start date: 2015-10-01, End date: 2020-09-30
Europe is facing a striking change in its demographics with an increasingly larger proportion of citizens aged 65 years and over. Aging is characterized by a progressive decline in the physiological functions of the body, with very notable effects on the heart. These effects...

Effects of Medication Use in Pregnancy on Infant Neurodevelopment
ID: 639377
Start date: 2015-09-01, End date: 2020-08-31
Currently, thousands of pregnant women in the EU and worldwide are being increasingly prescribed medications for which we do not have sufficient information on fetal safety. I hypothesize that our current understanding of safety pharmacology is oversimplified and that...

Enhanced Qualitative and Multi-Method Research in Political Science
ID: 638425
Start date: 2015-05-01, End date: 2020-04-30
Over the last 20 years, qualitative methods in political science have developed rapidly on three dimen-sions. First, set theory was formulated as an alternative to what is called the quantitative worldview. Second, process tracing for the analysis of mechanisms evolved as a...

Frontier Research on the Dielectric Properties of Biological Tissue
ID: 637780
Start date: 2015-10-01, End date: 2020-09-30
The dielectric properties of biological tissues are of fundamental importance to the understanding of the interaction of electromagnetic fields with the human body. These properties are used to determine the safety of electronic devices, and in the design, development and...

Clarifying Optimal Sodium Intake Project
ID: 640580
Start date: 2015-05-01, End date: 2020-04-30
Hypertension is a leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) globally, accounting for 25-35% of the population-attributable fraction. Sodium (salt) intake is a key determinant of blood pressure, and reducing sodium intake has emerged as an important target for...

Resonant Nuclear Gamma Decay and the Heavy-Element Nucleosynthesis
ID: 637686
Start date: 2015-03-01, End date: 2020-02-29
THE GRAND CHALLENGE: The “Holy Grail” of nuclear astrophysics is to understand the astrophysical processes responsible for the formation of the elements. A particularly challenging part is the description of the heavy-element nucleosynthesis. The only way to build the...
