The active pupil: The role of pupil size in active vision (ACTPUP)

Start date: 01 Nov 2014, End date: 31 Oct 2016,

"The pupil is a volatile surface. It shrinks when we step out into the sun, and expands when we get aroused or exert mental or physical effort. These basic pupillary responses have been recognized at least since Roman times, and have been the focus of systematic investigation since the 18th century. Currently, pupil-size measurement, or pupillometry, is an established tool for diagnosing visual de ...

Targeting Innate Lymphoid Cells (TILC)

Start date: 01 Jan 2017, End date: 31 Dec 2021,

TILC focuses on Innate Lymphoid Cells (ILCs). ILCs are a newly discovered type of lymphocyte, and their study opens up new perspectives for understanding and manipulating of immunity. ILCs include cytotoxic ILCs (NK cells) and helper-like ILCs (ILC1, ILC2 & ILC3). Studies of ILC2 cells have advanced considerably, but much remains unknown about the respective roles of NK, ILC1 and ILC3 cells. TILC ...
