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..

Towards environmentally friendly new catalytic processes
Photocarb aims at integrating various molecular components for collecting solar energy, storing multiple electrons and catalyzing reduction reactions within a technological device, a photoelectrochemical cell, in order to transform CO2 into fuels, using exclusively sunlight as a source of energy as photosynthetic microoraganisms do. This research will specifically lead to the development of an original molecular photocathode.
Assessing CHILdren Exposure to environmental chemicals using target and non-target strategies – ACHILE
Exposures to environmental chemicals are an important societal concern due to their negative impact on human health, particularly during critical periods of development (e.g. embryonic, fetal, infancy). A robust characterization of the population’s exposure to potentially harmful chemicals is essential in the identification of associations between chemical exposure and human diseases.
Currently, the role of marine protected areas in controlling invasive species populations is generally unknown; a limited number of studies have explored the potential of marine protected areas to mitigate alien species impacts worldwide, often with contrasting results. At the same time, assessments of impacts of invasive species on marine ecosystems within and outside marine protected areas are scanty.
Does more freedom of choice improve well-being?
