Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability, leading to great personal suffering to victim and relatives, as well as huge direct and indirect costs to society. Strong ethical, medical, social and health economic reasons therefore exist for improving treatment. The CENTER-TBI project will collect a prospective, contemporary, highly granular, observational dataset of 5400 p ...

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 ...

"Our ability to understand causality is at the very core of modern civilization. We see potential antecedents of this understanding in some non-human animals, notably apes and corvids. To date, behaviour thought to be indicative of causal understanding, particularly tool-use, has been mainly described as a phenomenon rather than studied as a mechanism and thus suffers from the lack of an experimen ...

Emerging evidence indicates that the gut microbiome contributes to our ability to extract energy from the diet and influences development and function of the immune, endocrine and nervous systems, which regulate energy balance and behaviour. This has led to hypothesize that developing microbiome-based dietary interventions can be cost-effective measures to prevent diet-related and behavioural diso ...

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 ...

In recent years, various terms – the Virtual Physiological Human (VPH), Integrative Biology, Physiome Research – have been used to describe the trend in biomedical research towards the consideration of systemic processes. These phenomena are commonly observed in living organisms but cannot be explained within a single sub-system but reflect, rather, systemic outcomes that result from the interacti ...

The Virtual Physiological Human network represents an active and diverse community of biomedical scientists that studies human biology by computational means. This diversity is the basis for an impressive breadth of scientific approaches, and emergent technologies, as well as potentially shareable resources such as data and models. Although in principle, the resources generated are re-usable, in p ...

IT Future of Medicine (ITFoM)

Start date: May 1, 2011, End date: Apr 30, 2012,

Data-rich, individualised medicine poses unprecedented challenges for IT, in hardware, storage and communication. We propose a data-driven, individualised medicine of the future, based on molecular/physiological/anatomical data from individual patients. We shall make general models of human pathways, tissues, diseases and ultimately of the human as a whole. Individualised versions of the models, ...

IBD: proteases offer new targets for drug discovery (IPODD)

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

"The inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) which comprise Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic relapsing and remitting inflammatory disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. The frequency of these conditions has increased in recent decades, particularly in countries making the transition from developing to developed nation status. In western Europe, IBD now affects between 1/1000 and 5/10 ...

Mediterranean-climate ecosystems (e.g. Mediterranean Basin, Southwest Australia) are biodiversity hot spots for vascular plants. Some fire adapted plant species of the Proteaecae family of the South African Cape floristic region and the Southwest Australia n sandplains, which are killed by fires (non-sprouters) and storing their seeds in canopies (serotiny), are one of the rare examples of real pl ...
