The problem: finding the right patient for the right treatmentDespite a large and growing disease burden in osteoarthritis (OA), many pharmaceutical companies have de-emphasized or even abandoned OA drug development due to perceived hurdles. Crucial in this is the lack of appropriate outcome measures that can robustly identify patient benefit from a specific therapy. The lack of specific and sensi ...

The current healthcare systems are built around the traditional paradigm of patients suffering from a single acute illness. They are therefore largely unprepared to face the increasing demands for health services arising from the expansion of an older population with specific medical needs related to multiple chronic disorders. As a consequence, the medical conditions of a large and growing seg ...

Electron dynamics in metals and nanostructures take place on attosecond timescales. Until today, these extremely fast processes are little understood let alone utilized. With NearFieldAtto, strong-field driven phenomena at nanoscale metal structures will be explored to elucidate collective electron dynamics and to induce optical-field-driven currents -- on attosecond timescales. We will investigat ...

Tuning the properties of NanoCarbon with Fluorination (NANOCF)

Start date: Oct 1, 2013, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

Low-dimensional carbon structures such as graphene and carbon nanotubes have raised tremendous interest in recent years both from fundamental and technological perspectives. However, the tunability of the density of electronic states of graphene and carbon nanotubes remains a limiting factor for their implementation in modern nanotechnology. It has been recently shown that the energy bandgap of gr ...

Equipping the Next Generation for Active Engagement in Science (ENGAGE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Mar 31, 2017,

The key to engaging the next generation to participate in scientific issues is to change how science is taught. Students gain an image of science as a body of content whereas RRI deals with uncertain areas of knowledge is uncertain, where values and argument matter as much as facts. The shift is hugely challenging. High stakes education systems marginalise teaching about the nature of science. Th ...

Thermodynamics of Mesoscopic Quantum Systems (TherMiQ)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2016,

A quantum technology going beyond microscopic borders will be confronted with aspects of thermodynamics that are yet to be understood. This is important, both from a fundamental perspective and with a view to development of quantum devices. Here we propose a comprehensive research programme -- which we dub TherMiQ -- aimed at developing a general framework that brings together thermodynamics and t ...

Infinite-dimensional Lie theory and Kac-Moody groups (KMLieGroups)

Start date: Oct 1, 2014, End date: Sep 30, 2016,

"Lie theory was created at the end of the 19th century, and rapidly became a central chapter of contemporary mathematics. Finite-dimensional Lie groups and Lie algebras were extensively studied for more than a century, and are well understood. In attempting to generalise the finite-dimensional objects, one can roughly distinguish two general approaches, one ""analytic"" (keeping the smooth manifol ...

Antibody genes in B lymphocytes are assembled from multiple rearranging gene segments, enabling the immune system to protect us from a huge diversity of pathogens. Each B lymphocyte expresses only one antibody specificity on the cell surface (monospecificity), even though there is more than one allele for each antibody chain, a phenomenon termed allelic exclusion. Allelic exclusion requires asynch ...
