Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major global public health threat, and most troublesome is the rapid emergence and dissemination of multidrug resistant (MDR) Enterobacteriaceae, Acinetobacter species and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. There is an unmet medical need to prevent P. aeruginosa infection in critically ill patients and to develop new antibiotics for infections caused by Gram-negative bacte ...

Combatting Bacterial Resistance in Europe (COMBACTE-NET)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

The emergence of Antibiotic-resistant bacteria (ARB) is a global problem, having recently been elevated to the top three threats identified by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and subject of numerous national and international government activities, including the Trans-Atlantic Task Force on Antimicrobial Resistance established by the US and EU presidencies. The estimated costs of ARB are aro ...

The last decade has witnessed an explosion of research into the molecular networks ensuring maintenance of a mutualistic relationship between microbes and host cell networks at mucosal surfaces. Failure of such homeostatic or adaptive programs lead to susceptibility to intestinal infections or to chronic inflammation causing debilitating human diseases such as inflammatory bowel diseases or inflam ...

Synthetic biology (SynBio) offers huge potential for applications in energy, health and the environment. It also brings with it various challenges such as regulatory issues of biosafety, biosecurity and intellectual property rights, as well as potential environmental and socio-economic risks in developing countries. As yet, however, there is scant public knowledge about the technology. It is thus ...

Proteolysis affects every protein through limited processing or degradation. Unlike other post−translational modifications, proteolysis is irreversible and occurs intra− and extracellularly. The large number of genetically encoded proteases in man (> 560) illustrates the importance of proteolysis. However, the in vivo substrate profiles of most proteases have remained elusive; presenting a major h ...

Media content is being distributed more and more via electronic networks, and parents as well as their kids receive and access this content with electronic end devices. Where retail boxes traditionally came with visual age labels, the digitalisation of age labels is stuck in a very early stage of development. There is no extensive use of digital age labels yet, especially on the open internet. One ...

In cancer biology, primary tumours and metastasis are embedded in a microenvironment comprised of cells such as tumour associated macrophages and cancer-associated fibroblasts. Tumour and stroma derived cytokines form a paracrine loop of mutual activation, often resulting in elevated tumour aggressiveness. Interestingly, numerous studies have shown that altered protein glycosylation is a hallmark ...

"Novel statistical methodology promises to greatly facilitate development of approaches for personalised medicine. While state-of-the-art statistical techniques have already advanced clinical trials and diagnostic/prognostic studies as the major source of evidence in clinical medicine, increasing availability of molecular techniques holds an even greater promise. However, for leveraging such infor ...

The project aims to develop novel inhibitors of chronic autoimmune and inflammatory diseases by targeting members of the Src tyrosine kinase family. Src-family kinases have recently emerged as major therapeutic targets in malignant diseases but their suitability as potential targets of inflammatory diseases has not yet recieved widespread acceptance. On the other hand, members of the applicant con ...

The E2A gene encodes for two alternatively spliced proteins, namely E12 and E47, which belong to the family of basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors. The E2A proteins have been characterized extensively as regulators during various stages of B and T lymphocyte development. Recently, we have generated mice deficient for either E12 or E47 and examined their roles in B cell maturation. We show ...

After brain injury or neurologic disease, the ability of the central nervous system (CNS) to regenerate is limited. Neural stem cells (NSCs) have the potential to differentiate into neurons and glia, but neurogenesis is incomplete after CNS disease because of a changed extracellular environment. The identification of novel factors responsible for regulating NSC fate is necessary for the molecular ...

European Communication on Research Awareness Needs (ECRAN)

Start date: Sep 1, 2012, End date: Aug 31, 2014,

"The ECRAN (European Communication on Research Awareness Needs) project is designed to develop a portfolio of open educational resources, including a film, for the general population about the challenges raised by independent clinical research.The European Commission (FP7 Health Priority) decided to allocate substantial funding to independent (investigator-driven) clinical trials. Together with me ...

Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) affects children and young adults and is associated with significant morbidity, mortality and socio-economic costs. CGD is caused by the genetic deficiency of NADPH oxidase (Nox). The characteristic lesion in CGD is the development of granulomas, or confined areas of tissue inflammation, which are characterized by the presence of macrophages (Mph) and Mph-deriv ...

Pemphigus - From autoimmunity to disease (Pemphigus)

Start date: May 1, 2008, End date: Oct 31, 2011,

Pemphigus is a potentially lethal bullous disease of the skin and mucosa and may be considered as a paradigmatic organ-specific autoimmune disease due to 1) its well-defined autoantigens, 2) the knowledge of critical events of its immune pathogenesis and 3) the reproducibility of major clinical and pathogenic features in suitable animal models. Overall, understanding the etiopathogenesis of pemphi ...

Start date: Mar 1, 2008, End date: Aug 31, 2010,

Objective: To find and produce novel target compounds against the influenza virus. Influenza A capsid protein is the target since it does not mutate at the same rate as the Hemagglutinin or Neuraminidase proteins. We aim to develop new therapeutic antiviral solutions to combat the disease. Beyond state of the art: The project combines knowledge based design and synthesis of compounds with unique p ...

"The clock is counting down to the next influenza pandemic. Since 1997, the avian influenza virus strain H5N1 has infected over 250 people worldwide with a fatality rate of ~60%, although so far without sustained human-to-human transmission. In view of the very few efficacious drugs against influenza virus infections and the time it takes to develop a matching vaccine, there is an unmet worldwide ...
