<br />Mass-production of human hepatocytes is at the heart of an economic challenge for biotechnology and biomedical research. Studies on animal models are misleading because the expression levels and substrate specificity of liver enzymes are often different from their human counterparts. Hepatocytes isolated from human livers represent the gold standard in vitro cell model but the source of human tissue is limited. In addition, isolated human hepatocytes do not longer poliferate in culture. <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
Ostrecoccus tauri from Research to Industry: A microalgal factory for the development and production of higher value-added compounds for well-being, food and health industries. – OTARI
Microalgae are a highly diverse bio-resource and feature a large variety of value-added compounds, which
Rubber family farms provide most of the global supply in natural rubber, a strategic commodity. But can these small plantations adapt and keep viable in front of fast climatic, social and economic changes?
Targeting PAthogen’s NIChe: a new approach for infectious diseases control in low-income countries – PANIC
where specific biological and socio-economical features have prevented implementation of disease control
The interaction between spelling and motor processes in writing : Behavioural, developmental and brain imaging studies – ECRIRE
Writing proficiency is crucial for a successful education. To survive in a society that is more and more dependent on written language, children have to learn quickly how to write and render spelling and motor processes automatic. Understanding how spelling and motor processes interact in writing acquisition is therefore a key issue to improve teaching methods at school.
The aim of the project is to revisit energy management tools to increase stakeholders’ involvement by taking into account their practices, routines, preferences, values ... In practice it consists in developing new services capable of interacting with all actors by mobilising their inferred knowledge and expertise in order to encourage new practices. These tools shall be implemented in the positive energy tower ELITHIS Rhin et Danube.
The project's objective is to provide the necessary tools for characterising the evolution of, and impact on, urban environments. The tools being (at satisfactory spatial resolution): morpho-spectral database, change detection algorithms, fusing HS+Panchromatic. Hyperspectral imagery raises issues in urban environments but necessitates a better understanding of urban characteristics and its constituting objects (geometry, spectral properties). Sites: Metropole of Toulouse and Kaunas (Lithuania).
Synthons production from lignocellulosic biomass by microbial consortia: Assessing the impact of innovative reactive-extrusion pre-treatment and high solid load processes. – Hi-Solids
with extrusion, notably targeting key structural features of the hemicellulosic and lignin fractions. The
Multi Scale COrrosion Testing: application to the prediction of the intergranular corrosion rate of a reference aluminium alloy for aeronautic. – M-SCOT
Costs of maintenance can be reduced by predicting the propagation rate of any kind of existing defect. Therefore, the propagation of intergranular corrosion, remains a key point in aircraft risk and reliability analysis as intergranular corrosion is known to have a detrimental effect on integrity of aircraft structures by promoting fatigue crack initiation.
Study of the genomics, traits, and establishment capacities of trichogramma wasps to develop effective biological control programs against pests as alternatives to pesticides.
