(Over)medicalization of Childbirth as a Public Problem: Material Trajectories, Public Controversies and Institutional Changes – HYPMEDPRO
During the last decades, public criticism of « overmedicalized » childbirth has gained weight in many geographies. Sometimes publicised within denounciations of « obstetrical violence », such criticism has catalyzed the emergence of alternative knowledge and practices as well as regulatory and even institutional changes. This research program tackles these new dynamics in an international perspective, by focusing on five countries with different medical cultures and histories.
- epigenome, transcriptome, chromatin architecture – Three dimensional crop responses to heat stress: a case study on wheat – 3DWheat
Due to climate change, heat stress is going to become a major source of yield loss in Europe in the coming years. There is thus urgent need for the elucidation of cellular mechanisms involved in heat

Optical lattice clocks (OLCs) have progressed rapidly since the initial proposal in 2002, they now outperform even the best microwave clocks realizing the current definition of the SI second, as well
NaijaSynCor takes an exhaustive and in-depth look at the structure of Naija (Common Nigerian Pidgin) in Nigeria today. Spoken by educated Nigerians, it has been proved by Deuber (2005) to develop in Lagos as a discrete language, separate from Nigerian English. This study proposes to assess whether this holds true for the rest of Nigeria where Naija is spoken by over 75 million speakers. It examines diachronic, diatopic, diaphasic, diastratic, and genre variation.
