The MAIA project focuses on multiphysical imaging analysis for the study of brain development in premature babies. Long-term studies have shown that the majority of prematurely born infants may have significant motor, cognitive and behavioural deficits. This project aims to improve our knowledge on the brain development of premature babies by developing new methods for analysing brain data.
Communication is one of the necessary condition to develop intelligence in living beings. Humans use several modalities to exchange information: speech, written text, both in many languages, gestures,
The MHYCONIA project aims at developing a new strategy, based on ionic liquids, for the synthesis of functional coordination networks to provide a new type of adaptable materials. The project speciall
Multielectronic Light Driven Water Activation for Oxygen Atom Transfer Reactions under Mild Conditions – MULTIPLET
This project is centered on the construction of a self-sufficient system allowing Oxygen Atom Transfer Reactions (OATR) by coupling a synthetic sensitizer-catalyst assembly able to photoactivate H2O and generate highly reactive metal oxo species (2e-+2H+ process) to an active robust multi-copper oxidase<br />(laccase) acting as an electron/proton acceptor that performs O2 reduction (4e-+4H+ process).
The project is to develop an innovative multimodal technology acquisition and multispectral imaging for early detection and characterization of mucosal inflammation preferentially occurring in two are
Multi-scale approaches for best resource management practices of Sahelian landscapes in the Great Green Wall for the Sahara and the Sahel Initiative context – FUTURE-SAHEL
The Sahel is one of the most vulnerable regions on Earth. To respond to its increasing ecological and human vulnerability, the adoption of the Great Green Wall (GGW) in 2007 was a step in the right direction. Future Sahel is extremely timely in that it aims to produce ground-breaking interdisciplinary, multiscale knowledge to inform natural resource management decisions along the GGW. Knowledge sharing and transfer are facilitated by the inclusion of Senegalese GGW agency as a project partner.
Multi-scale approach of the interplay between mechanics and chemistry?in the regulation of the actin cytoskeleton – MuScActin
Mechanics are a constitutive part of a cell’s existence. Forces result from the cell's constant interaction with its environment, and are generated within the cell as it organizes its inner life. To a
Multi-luminescent up-converting nanohybrids with controlled blinking for super-resolution imaging and single particle tracking – BLINK
Crowned by the 2014 Nobel Prize, new non-invasive, far-field super-resolution microscopies classically rely on the excitation of fluorescent probes with a high energy light. The aim of the Blink project is to exploit the “upconversion” phenomenenon, a non linear process that converts near infra red light into visible ones in a non coherent way.
Left-right lateralization is an important organizing principle of the human brain which is not a current focus of HBP research. One prominently lateralized anatomical and functional network underlies
Full duplex consists in transmitting and receiving simultaneously in the same frequency band, which in theory allows to increase the capacity of communication. DUPLEX project objectives are: - to stu
