Deciphering plant cell WALL remodeling using mechanical measurements and bioMIMEtic models – WALLMIME
characterization of the effects of enzymes on plant material and biomimetic models. It will thus contribute
Identifying Mass-Independent Fractionation of Sulfur (S-MIF) in the mantle brings strong evidence for an early transfer of Archean crustal sedimentary material into the mantle. However, the application of S-MIF in the mantle is still in its infancy, especially owing to both methodological and analytical limitations. The main objective of this project is to fill in the gaps that presently limit the application of this promising tracer of the Earth's early geodynamics.
Deciphering the biophysical basis by which glycosaminoglycans control growth factor signaling during development: a biomimetic approach – GlyCON
Deciphering the biophysical basis by which Glycosaminoglycans CONtrol growth factor signaling during development: a biomimetic approach
Deciphering the role of poroelasticity in tumor dynamics using multiscale acoustic probing – PoroTume
with a behaviour resembling that of poroelastic materials. As such tumours are comparable to sponges soaked
Adaptive materials have additional sensing or actuating properties compared to conventional materials. Composites [...] Composites are key materials for many fields (transport, aeronautics, renewable energies, ...). Their [...] structural and multifunctional properties, these materials have properties tailored to specific technical
Decision support for detection and collection of biological traces for genetic and criminal identification purposes – BioTrack
Touch DNA Traces left at the crime scene by offenders when touching an object, are widely collected to be analyzed for judiciary purposes. However, DNA profiles with a good quality are obtained for only about 30% of these samples. The main explanation for this huge loss of information is an insufficient amount of DNA recovered for the analysis.

Decoding the mechanotransduction: spatial and temporal coordination of the mechanical and biochemical signals – DeMeTr
Cells and tissues are able to sense and respond to their physical environment through an ensemble of complex processes named mechanotransduction. The system is highly dynamic and the signal transduction occurs in both directions: from the mechanics to the biochemistry and vice versa from the biochemistry to the mechanics. The coordination in space and time of the mechanical and biochemical signals is not yet clear and rarely addressed.
Decontamination measures to restore facilities and the environment after a natural or deliberate re-lease of pathogenic microorganisms – DEFERM
decontamination requirements, like different materials in sensitive rooms to be recovered, as well as
