A Systems medicine approach to chronic inflammatory disease (SYSCID)

Start date: 01 Jan 2017, End date: 31 Mar 2022,

"The SYSCID consortium aims to develop a systems medicine approach for disease prediction in CID. We will focus on three major CID indications with distinct characteristics, yet a large overlap of their molecular risk map: inflammatory bowel disease, systemic lupus erythematodes and rheumatoid arthritis. We have joined 15 partners from major cohorts and initiatives in Europe (e.g.IHEC, ICGC, Twins ...

Spectral Statistics of Structured Random Matrices (RandMat)

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

The purpose of this proposal is a better mathematical understanding of certain classes of large random matrices. Up to very recently, random matrix theory has been mainly focused on mean-field models with independent entries. In this proposal I instead consider random matrices that incorporate some nontrivial structure. I focus on two types of structured random matrices that arise naturally in imp ...

The centriole is the largest evolutionary conserved macromolecular structure responsible for building centrosomes and cilia or flagella in many eukaryotes. Centrioles are critical for the proper execution of important biological processes ranging from cell division to cell signaling. Moreover, centriolar defects have been associated to several human pathologies including ciliopathies and cancer. T ...

Toxoplasma gondii is the most successful obligate intracellular parasites infecting virtually all warm-blooded animals. A infection initiates with the dissemination of the fast-replicating tachyzoites. At the onset of the immune response tachyzoites convert into slow-growing bradyzoites that form cysts in the central nervous system and in striated and heart muscles. Encystation ensures life-long p ...

Forecasting the recurrence rate of volcanic eruptions (FEVER)

Start date: 01 Apr 2016, End date: 31 Mar 2021,

Volcanic eruptions occur with a frequency that is inversely proportional to their magnitude. Datasets of natural volcanic events, currently used to determine the recurrence rate of volcanic eruptions are intrinsically biased. Combining physical modelling of processes with detailed statistical analysis has been demonstrated essential for assessing reliably the recurrence rate of natural hazards, su ...

Environmental perturbations to lakes and reservoirs occur largely as episodic climatic events. These range from relatively short mixing events to storms and heat waves. While the driving events occur along a continuum of frequency and magnitude, however, their effect is generally longer lasting than the events themselves. In addition, the more extreme weather events are now becoming increasingly ...

Regulation of mitochondrial expression (REMIX)

Start date: 01 Oct 2016, End date: 30 Sep 2020,

Mitochondria are essential organelles found in every eukaryotic cell, required to convert food into usable energy. The mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) system, which produces the majority of cellular energy in the form of ATP, is controlled by two distinct genomes: the nuclear and the mitochondrial genome (mtDNA). Mutations in mitochondrial genes encoded by either genome could caus ...
