Chronic aortic aneurysms are permanent and localized dilations of the aorta that remain asymptomatic for long periods of time but continue to increase in diameter before they eventually rupture. Left untreated, the patients’ prognosis is dismal, since the internal bleeding of the rupture brings about sudden death. Although successful treatment cures the disease, the risky procedures can result in ...

The role of chronic inflammation in obesity, metabolic and cardiovascular diseases is increasingly recognized. Bile acids (BA), synthesized in the liver and modified by the gut flora, facilitate lipid absorption in the intestine. BA modulate lipid and glucose homeostasis by activating the nuclear receptor FXR and the GPCR TGR5. Intriguingly, peripheral BA concentrations are elevated in type 2 diab ...

Lasers have found widespread application in medicine, such as for photothermal therapy. Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), are often used as enhancers of the photothermal effect since they can efficiently absorb laser light and convert it into thermal energy. When absorbing intense nano- or picosecond laser pulses, AuNPs can become extremely hot and water vapor nanobubbles (VNBs) can emerge around these ...

Synergy for Smart Multi-Objective Optimisation (SYNERGY)

Start date: Feb 1, 2016, End date: Jan 31, 2019,

Many real-world application areas, such as advanced manufacturing, involve optimisation of several, often time-consuming and conflicting objectives. For example, they require the maximisation of the product quality while minimising the production cost, and rely on demanding numerical simulations in order to assess the objectives. These, so-called multi-objective optimisation problems can be solved ...

MULTISCALE MODELLING OF THE RHEOLOGY OF MANTLE MINERALS (RheoMan)

Start date: May 1, 2012, End date: Apr 30, 2018,

Understanding mantle convection is essential to understand the thermal and chemical evolution of the Earth and to constrain the forces driving plate tectonics. The rheological properties of the mantle are traditionally inverted from surface geophysical data. Radial profiles of the viscosity are thus available but a lot of uncertainties remain.A more detailed model of mantle rheology could be obtai ...

Currently licensed influenza vaccines promote an effective antibody response, but only against influenza virus strains that antigenically match the vaccine composition. Little protection is induced by these vaccines against antigenically drifted strains such as those emerging from an avian or swine reservoir. Hence there is a great need to develop broadly cross-reactive flu-vaccines.The aim is to ...
