IMMUNOSABR is geared towards opening up a new paradigm in treating metastatic cancer by obtaining clinical proof of concept for a novel bi-modal curative treatment strategy. High precision stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) is combined with immunotherapy to form a powerful synergistic anti-tumour strategy. The approach relies on the direct cytotoxic effect of SABR, the abscopal effect of ra ...

Resolution of acute inflammation, involving limiting further leukocyte recruitment, apoptosis and clearance of inflammatory cells via macrophages as well as egress of the inflammatory cells, is operative in acute inflammation but dysfunctional in chronic inflammatory disease. In the latter scenario, the retention and activation of leukocytes in the inflamed tissue linked with failure to resolve in ...

Many technologically and societally important mathematical problems are intractable for conventional, serial computers. Therefore, a significant need exists for parallel-computing approaches that are capable to solve such problems within reasonable time frames. Recently, part of our consortium demonstrated proof-of-principle of a parallel-computation system in which a given combinatorial problem i ...

The complexity of constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs) is a field in rapid development, and involves central questions in graph homomorphisms, finite model theory, reasoning in artificial intelligence, and, last but not least, universal algebra. In previous work, it was shown that a substantial part of the results and tools for the study of the computational complexity of CSPs can be generalise ...

Groups, Dynamics, and Approximation (GrDyAp)

Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2021,

Eversince, the study of symmetry in mathematics and mathematical physics has been fundamental to a thourough understanding of most of the fundamental notions. Group theory in all its forms is the theory of symmetry and thus an indispensible tool in many of the basic theoretical sciences.The study of infinite symmetry groups is especially challenging, since most of the tools from the sophisticated ...

Aberrant cell cycle and redox regulation are hallmarks of cancer. While cell cycle and redox signaling are extensively studied, it remains poorly understood how both communicate in physiological conditions. One reason is the emphasis on oxidative stress as a signature of cancer cells. Only recently, emerging evidence indicates that reactive oxygen species (ROS) also function as signaling molecules ...

Novel applications based on organic biluminescence (BILUM)

Start date: Apr 1, 2016, End date: Mar 31, 2021,

Organic semiconducting molecules often make for very good luminescent materials. Fundamental excitations are localized on single molecules, which is in stark contrast to inorganic semiconductors, such that exchange interactions lead to energetically distinct singlet and triplet states. The singlet-excited state is the origin of conventional fluorescence. However, once an excitation is in the molec ...

The discovery of pluripotent stem cells has expanded the working modes in biology towards the reverse engineering of specific cell types. Unlike studying developmental phenomena in vivo, we are now theoretically able to mimic some of these processes in a dish. The use of human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells facilitates studying the genesis of human cell types in an ethically approved setting ...

Regeneration of the adult zebrafish brain (ZF-BrainReg)

Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Dec 31, 2020,

The goal of this research proposal is to unravel the cellular and molecular mechanisms for the ability of the adult zebrafish brain to regenerate itself after a lesion, and to compare these mechanisms in the non-regenerating mammalian brain. The corresponding mechanisms, if reactivated, may rekindle regeneration also in mammalian brains. Specifically, we focus on identifying the endogeneous stem a ...

The incidence of autoimmune diseases in developed societies is increasing at high rates, but the underlying cause for this phenomenon has not been elucidated yet. Since the genetic architect remains considerably stable, this increase is likely associated with changes in the environment.
