Amélioration du plaisir alimentaire du senior pour bien vieillir et lutter contre la dénutrition – AUPALESENS
Les raisons de la malnutrition sont multifactorielles : déclin des capacités sensorielles,changement des préférences alimentaires, facteurs sociaux, environnementaux , pathologiques… il est donc important de proposer des outils d’amélioration des repas pour mieux répondre aux attentes des personnes âgées et aux besoins liés au vieillissement.
By a bio-mimicry approach, the project aims to improve the anaerobic digestion processes using animal models, both at the level of processes and at the level of microbial communities. This multidisciplinary approach combines: modeling of different digestive systems, copies of two laboratory-scale digestive systems and structural and functional description of the associated microbial communities.
Combination of lignocellulosic biomass hydrolysis and fermentation steps can lead to lower process costs for the 2nd generation bio-ethanol industry, but also brings constraints to the enzymes' activities. The objective of this project is to adapt several enzymes to these constraints.
Understanding decision-making from the dynamics of large neural populations in behaving zebrafish – ERASYSBIO (ANR-09-SYSB-0009)
One of the central goals in brain research is the elucidation of the dynamic interactions among neurons and circuits underlying cognitive processes. In this project we focus on decision making as an e
Living with uninvited guests -comparing plant and animal responses to endocytic invasions – ERASYSBIO (ANR-09-SYSB-0007)
Salmonella are Gram-negative bacterial facultative endopathogens capable of infecting an unusually wide range of organisms and the causative agent of various human diseases, from enteritis to typhoid
Integration of computational modelling with transcription and gene essentiality profiling of both MTB bacillus and infected human dendritic cells and macrophages to understand molecular interaction networks involved in the host pathogen cross-talk – ERASYSBIO (ANR-09-SYSB-0005)
Mycobacterium tuberculosis is a major pathogen of man. Drug treatment is available for human disease but it takes six months, which is impractical in developing world settings where TB is most common.
Commercial fruit production is under significant pressure from environmental stresses, but also by changes in the consumer’s demand for taste and nutritional value. One key goal of fruit biology is th
