Revelation after three decades of ablation therapy: two loops instead of a single re-entry loop drive atrial tachycardiaRevelation after three decades of ablation therapy: two loops instead of a single re-entry loop drive atrial tachycardia16-11-202323-11-2023There is an urgent need to better understand and localise the sources of cardiac arrhythmia in order to improve its treatment. SmartHeart proposes a radical new approach—applying network theory to study cardiac arrhythmia mechanisms. Network theory has myriad applications throughout biology, physics and social sciences. However, it has never been applied to the heart. In this proposal, we will apply network theory to clinical data of cardiac arrhythmia, backed up by computer simulations, to automatically detect the source of the arrhythmia for complex atrial tachycardia, atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. As we will identify possible ablation targets, the goal of this project is to improve the treatment for the patient.Nele VandersickelGhent UniversitySMARTHEART ProjectBiology, HealthThe PRj Volume 18Read Full Text Download (PDF)

Material constraints enabling human cognitionMaterial constraints enabling human cognition15-11-202323-11-2023Compared to our closest living relatives, who typically use fewer than 100 words, humans can build vocabularies of tens of hundreds of thousands of words. The ERC-funded Advanced Grant project ‘Material Constraints enabling Human Cognition’, or ‘MatCo’,  will find out why. It will use novel insights from human neurobiology. These will be translated into mathematically exact computational models to find new answers to long-standing questions in cognitive science, linguistics and philosophy. The project will also explore how semantic meaning is implemented for gestures and words and, more specifically, for referential and categorical terms. To identify human cognitive capacities, MatCo will develop models replicating structural differences between human and non-human primate brains. The results will shed light on the biologically constrained networks.Friedemann PulvermüllerFreie Universität BerlinMatCo ProjectBiologyThe PRj Volume 18Read Full Text Download (PDF)

 Experience the precision of time: radiocarbon 3.0 Experience the precision of time: radiocarbon 3.003-07-202303-07-2023RESOLUTION aims to achieve an accurate and highly resolved chronology back to 55 000 years BP (Before Present), using some new floating sections of fossil trees. In fact, with tree rings, the resolution will be an order of magnitude higher, and using the most recent advances in the AMS technique, we will obtain confidence intervals of only a few centuries in glacial times. In this way, we can establish in a precise way the timing of when Homo sapiens arrived in Europe, their interaction with Neanderthals and the final cause of the Neanderthal extinction. The project involves fieldwork in the Mediterranean and Southeast Europe to find more glacial trees, study the exist-ing collection of glacial conifers, exceptional 14C precision for 14C dates in the glacial, and the cutting-edge methodolo-gy linking floating tree-ring chronologies to 10Be on the ice core scale.

Catch plastic litter before it reaches the oceanCatch plastic litter before it reaches the ocean27-02-202327-02-2023Increased global production and poor waste management have led to a build-up of plastic litter in the world’s oceans. This has devastating effects on ecosystems and marine life. The flow of plastics into the oceans occurs through a variety of pathways, but rivers are one of the largest contributors. The LIFE SouPLess project aims to develop technology to catch plastics from rivers before they spread to the seas and oceans. It is a 4.5 years project (July 2018 – December 2022). Three main links of the chain of riverine plastic recovery will be tackled: from locating plastic hotspots with a dedicated numerical model to effectively collecting the plastics with systems and finding sustainable and cost-effective solutions for post-processing the collected litter.Laura KlinkenbergAllseas, Delft, The NetherlandsSOUPLESS ProjectClimate & EnvironmentThe PRj Volume 16Read Full Text Download (PDF)

Overarching questions: What is the best way to monitor schistosome infections and drug efficacy? Has praziquantel resistance been selected for and what is its potential for spread? What other factors drive maintained transmission? What other factors affect parasite clearance? All require improved diagnostics and interpretation to be answered. Here we discuss the advances the Lamberton Lab are making for Schistosoma diagnostics.Poppy LambertonUniversity of GlasgowSchisto_Persist ProjectBiology, Medicine, SocietyThe PRj Volume 14Read Full Text Download (PDF)
The experience of war: the WARFUN projectThe experience of war: the WARFUN project27-08-202227-08-2022WARFUN investigates the plurality of experiences and affective grammars that are generally neglected by normative approaches. Anthropological studies have emphasised the ambivalent sentiments that arise as troubles escalate during large-scale violence and the crucial role that social actors have in determining the magnitude and consequences of conflict. War can only be understood through the broadest and the most complex assemblages of emotions and imagination available. By taking the wide array of sensations and emotions into account, we will be equipped to understand how war blurs the boundaries between the extraordinary and the ordinary and foresee the long-term, articulated effects of war on those who practice it.Antonio De LauriChr.

Cell ‘mechanomics’ A novel approach for precision nanomedicine in cancerCell ‘mechanomics’ A novel approach for precision nanomedicine in cancer27-08-202227-08-2022The project goal is to provide an integrative approach for the rational and personalised design of drug carriers in cancer, using the mechanical properties of cells and particles as the main principle for drug targeting— based on cell uptake. Our unique approach uses physical differences between normal and cancer cells that can define the capacity of a given particle to be engulfed by a deformable cell in order to promote specificity of therapy. In the project, we aim to establish a correlation between cancer cell deformability, malignancy and ‘phagocytosis’. The project includes advanced technologies of microfluidics, nanotechnology and theoretical physical model.

Cardiac arrhythmiaCardiac arrhythmia07-05-202207-05-2022There is an urgent need to better understand and localise the sources of cardiac arrhythmia in order to improve its treatment. In this project, we propose a radical new approach of applying network theory to study the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmia. Currently, network theory has a myriad of applications throughout biology, physics and social sciences. However, it has never been applied to the heart. In this proposal, we will apply network theory to clinical data of cardiac arrhythmia, backed-up by computer simulations, to automatically detect the source of the arrhythmia for complex atrial tachycardia, atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.As we will identify possible ablation targets, the goal of this project is to improve the treatment for the patient.

Spectrally resolved outgoing longwave radiation and its applications for the study of climateSpectrally resolved outgoing longwave radiation and its applications for the study of climate03-09-202102-02-2022Earth’s climate is determined by the flow of energy coming in and out of the Earth-atmosphere system. When reaching the atmosphere, a fraction (about 30 percent) of the incoming Sun’s radiation is directly reflected into space. The remaining part is absorbed by the atmosphere and Earth’s surface and reemitted as heat back into space.
