This grant proposal is motivated by two things. Firstly, many physical or biological models are multiscale and heterogeneous. Phenomena with multiple scales are found everywhere from the physics of su
Crime-related insecurity is a major is-sue in political debates and public policies. Our goal is to show how this insecurity varies across spaces. The Paris Region is a suitable ground for such a project: victimisation rates and indicators of feelings of insecurity are higher there than their nationwide average and it includes a wide range of different spaces.

Intermediate filaments (IF) are one of the three major components of the cytoskeleton in animal cells along with actin microfilaments and microtubules, but they remain the least understood of the thre
Renal prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) triggers renin secretion and is a key factor that controls glomerular hemodynamic. It therefore protects against hypovolemia by maintaining renal filtration. Renal PGE2 a

Aptamer-based peptide interference with type III effectors for broad-spectrum and durable resistance of crop plants – PAPTiCROPs
Bacterial plant pathogens are among the major constraints for stable food production. Many of them depend on the activity of a Type III Secretion System, which injects bacterial Type III Effector proteins (T3Es) into the host’s plant cells to the benefit of the pathogen. In this project, we propose to disarm bacterial phytopathogens by inhibiting the activity of conserved, key T3Es..
Plants, as sessile organisms, are highly impacted by environmental conditions. The soil is a highly heterogeneous environment for plant nutrition composed of a mosaic of local favorable versus stressf
