The capacity of zoonotic RNA viruses to emerge as major agents of human disease can appear limitless. Current intervention strategies have demonstrated limited success. Rapid, innovative and effective solutions are needed to reduce the apparently accelerating process of zoonotic disease emergence. We will study the following zoonotic viruses with epidemic potential in Europe: influenza virus, hepa ...

Among patients with adrenal masses Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) and malignant pheochromocytomas (MPH) are found with a low incidence but very unfavorable prognosis. Due to this poor clinical outcome, concomitant hormone dysregulation and limited treatment options the two cancer entities severely impact on affected patients. However, the rarity of the tumors also impedes clinical studies which ar ...

Towards eco-energetic communities (TWECOM)

Start date: May 11, 2011, End date: Dec 30, 2015,

The aim of the project is to valorize the up till now unused biomass from landscape elements in a sustainable way for heat and energy production on local scale. Landscape elements like hedgerows for example have had economic functions in the past and are typical for a large part of NW-Europe. In the 20th century this economic use disappeared. Landscape elements disappeared for this reason in many ...

"The initiation and perpetuation of atrial fibrillation (AF) can be regarded as a complication of a progressive transformation of the structure and functional properties of the atria. This transformation is the result of complex and multiple changes at the molecular, cellular and organ levels which interact to form the basis for proarrhythmic mechanisms in AF. Numerous individual and environmental ...

European Research Infrastructure on Highly Pathogenic Agents (ERINHA)

Start date: Nov 1, 2010, End date: Aug 31, 2014,

In the context of the emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases involving highly pathogenic microorganisms, European countries have to be well-prepared to face such threats. However, the Biosafety Level 4 (BSL4) capacity in Europe is not sufficient enough to cover the efficient development of diagnosis, prophylactic and therapeutics means against these pathogens. Moreover, there is no global co ...
