Disabling Radiotherapy resistance in Cancer Treatment (DIRECT)

Start date: May 1, 2014, End date: Apr 30, 2019,

"Cancer is a devastating disease affecting 1 in 3 people in their lifetime. The incidence is rising because of our aging population and causes a huge economic impact on our society because of hospitalization and lost productivity. Radiotherapy alone or in combination with surgery and/or chemotherapy is used in ~50% of all patients and uses ionizing radiation to induce DNA breaks that are lethal to ...

Systems medicine of chronic inflammatory bowel disease (SYSMEDIBD)

Start date: Dec 1, 2012, End date: Nov 30, 2017,

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a major health problem with severe co-morbidities, requiring life-long treatment. Oscillating processes, like biological clocks are well studied and modeled in a number of systems. Circadian rhythms are extremely important for optimal treatments of patients. Recently, the NfkB pathway has been shown to be oscillating. In this project, we will model NfkB oscillat ...

Microscale Chemically Reactive Electronic Agents (MICREAGENTS)

Start date: Sep 1, 2012, End date: Feb 29, 2016,

The goal of the project is to give electronics and chemistry an equal autonomous say in programming complex chemical constructions, processes and analyses at the nano and microscales: the same scale where information processing in living systems occurs – where "to construct is to compute". To do this MICREAgents (MIcroscopic Chemically Reactive Electronic Agents) will develop novel electronically ...
