 ONGOING 
Systems medicine designates the application of global approaches to human health and disease. Genomic technologies, especially next-generation sequencing, are already pioneering this new area. There is an urgent need to advance proteomics technologies to a similar level. This will help revolu¬tionize diagnosis and prognosis based on the expression levels and modifications of proteins in cells, tis ...

"Data on seawater composition since the start of the Phanerozoic eon ~540 million years ago provide essential information for understanding long-term chemical processes of socio-economic dimension like the evolution of life, land-ocean interaction, atmospheric chemistry, ecosystem adaptation to climate change, oceanic trace metal cycling, and for applied geological processes like the formation of ...

... iability, using in situ laser ablation analyses with a unique collision-cell multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass-spectrometer, developed in close collaboration with an industrial partner (Thermo Fisher) as part of the project. Thirdly, I will establish a chronology for the mixing of the pre-solar material within the nebula, by dating individual meteorite components (chondrules) using ...

ISOTOPIC TOOLS AS NOVEL SENSORS OF EARTH SURFACE RESOURCES (IsoNose)

Start date: Mar 1, 2014, End date: Feb 28, 2018,

Soil, water, and precious metals are major natural resources present at the Earth´s terrestrial surface and their efficient management is essential for future sustainable development. Their availability is regulated by massive biogeochemical transformations that take place as the chemical elements move from rock to soil, into plants, through ground water, into river water, and into ore deposits. T ...

Nanotechnology is a key enabling technology. Still existing uncertainties concerning EHS need to be addressed to explore the full potential of this new technology. One challenge consists in the development of methods that reliably identify, characterize and quantify nanomaterials (NM) both as substance and in various products and matrices. The European Commission has recently recommended a definit ...

"The ELUTE EID is an intersectoral study that aims to enhance knowledge of the environmental fate and behaviour of persistent brominated organic chemicals. Its overriding hypothesis is that current understanding of the environmental fate and behaviour of such chemicals can be improved substantially by imaginative exploitation of recent advances in technology led by the private sector. ELUTE's main ...

Investigating Tectonism-Erosion-Climate-Couplings (ITECC)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Jun 30, 2017,

Tectonics and climate are interdependent. The tectonics of orogens are moderated by climate through erosion. Exposure of rock by tectonics or erosion is critical to the feedback which governs changes in global climate, whilst topography influences rainfall. The principle objective of iTECC is to use the Himalaya as a natural laboratory to train young scientists in understanding such coupled proces ...

PROteomics SPECification in Time and Space (PROSPECTS)

Start date: Apr 1, 2008, End date: Mar 31, 2013,

"Proteomics is a major new field in biomedical research, which deals with the large-scale identification and characterization of large groups of proteins, or “proteomes”. These can either be the components of a subcellular organelle or compartment, or even the entire protein complement of whole cells and tissues. Proteomics is essential in the functional annotation of the genome and in future atte ...
