1 Aug :23:47 Research projects ( of 29735) Physiological, morphological and biomechanical requirelents of the musculo-skeletal system of the lower leg for top sprinters and endurance runners Abstract: Speed and stamina put competing demands on the design of our locomotor system and several traits of the lower leg are antaginistic pairs with respect to sprinting vs endurance running. This project aims to investigate the physiological and functional anatomical characteristics of the lower leg musculo-ckeletal system that promote excellence in either sprinting or endurance running. Departement of Movement and Sports Sciences Peter Aerts Dirk De Clercq Wim Derave Molecular analyses of a newly developed in vivo Candida albicans biofilm model system in order to identify genes important under these conditions. Abstract: Candida albicans is an important human fungal pathogen causing mucosal as well as deep tissue infections. It is present as a commensal in most humans but in most cases, disease only occurs when the immune system of the host is affected. In hospitals, the majority of infections caused bythis pathogen are associated with the formation of biofilms. This is a structured community of cells forming a thick layer embedded in an extracellular matrix, seemingly protecting the underlying cells from harsh environmental conditions, such as our immune system or antifungals. Many research groups worldwide are using in vitro models to study the different phases that occur during biofilm development and based on these studies many genes have been identified that play a role in this development. However, from the few in vivo biofilm studies that have been performed, it is clear that both the morphology as well as the expression pattern are quite different compared to the in vitro biofilms. We have rece Molecular Microbiology and Biotechnology Patrick Van Dijck Uwe Himmelreich Work-life policy implementation and work-to-life conflict as mediatorsof the relationship between organizational work-life policies and individual work outcomes: A mixed-method study in large Belgian firms. Universiteit Hasselt Abstract: The main goal of the project is to gain a more accurate understanding of the process through which organizational work-life policies affect individual work outcomes such as job satisfaction, commitment and motivation. Specifically, we propose to investigate work-life policy implementation and work-to-life conflict as two variables mediating the effect of policies on individual work outcomes. The study is based on a multiplecase, mixed-method research approach. Qualitative and quantitative data is collected in four large Belgian organizations with formal work-life policies. The study expands the current literature on work-life balance in three main ways. First, a multi-level theoretical model is developed and tested which explains the relationship between organizational work-life policies and individual work outcomes through the mediating variables work-life policy implementation and work-to-life conflict. Second, we explore contextual determinants of work-life policy implementation by drawing on insights from the employment relations literature. Specifically, we include flexibility demands at the (sub-)organizational level in our model and explore their relation to policy implementation. Third, we integrate quantitative and qualitative methodologies to enhance the explanatory potential of our study. Qualitative multiple case studies are suitable to investigate processes and generate new theory while quantitative approaches allow testing the explanatory power of such theory. Diversity Identity, Diversity & Inequality Research Patrizia ZANONI Nanobody-Loaded and -Coated Microbubbles: A Tool For Drug Delivery and Molecular Imaging Abstract: Nanobody-Loaded and -Coated Microbubbles: A Tool For Drug Delivery and Molecular Imaging Medical Imaging and Physical Sciences Tony LAHOUTTE Sophie HERNOT The role of astrocytic beta-2 adrenergic receptors in pathophsyiological mechanisms relevant for multiple sclerosis Abstract: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic debilitating disease of the central nervous system mainly affecting young and active individuals. The impact of this disease on a personal as well as socio-economic level is dramatic. The etiology of the disease remains largely elusive, and current treatments have a rather modest effect on the disease course. Our research is based on a hypothesis that dysfunctional astrocytes play an important role in the pathogenesis of MS. In preceding work we showed that astrocytes in MS are deficient in beta2-adrenergic receptors. We are gathering more and more data supporting our hypothesis that a deficiency of these receptors may play an important role in the pathology of MS. Activation of beta2-adrenergic receptors appears to suppress inflammation and regulate components of astrocyte energy metabolism and blood perfusion. Information is mostly obtained from in vitro studies. The aim of this project is to investigate the pathogenetic effects of astrocytic beta2- adrenergic receptor deficiency in vivo, at the level of both inflammatory demyelination and axonal degeneration. We are now in a unique position to study the situation as it occurs in MS because we have generated, for the first time, an astrocyte selective beta2-adrenergic receptor knockout mouse.

Abstract: The established clinical network and the developed dynamic function tests and biological markers provide us with the unique opportunity to identify sufficiently large groups of high-risk first-degree relatives (> 50% risk of diabetes) of a proband with type 1 diabetes and of recent-onset type 1 diabetic patients with the overall aim to investigate the correlation between functional beta cell mass and glycemic variability in relation to metabolic outcome in order to determine thresholds of residual function below which: - glucose tolerance starts to decline sharply in relatives - the risk of deteriorating metabolic control and (severe) hypoglycemic events strongly increases in patients Laboratory Experimental Medicine and Pediatrics (LEMP) Christophe De Block CHAMELEON: domain-specific hyperspectral imaging systems for relevant industrial applications. Abstract: The goal of CHAMELEON is to design the next generation vision system that exploits the benefits of spectral information. The mission and novelty of CHAMELEON is: To enable and demonstrate flexible, but domain-specific hyperspectral imaging systems for relevant industrial applications. More specifically, Chameleon will promote direct usage of hyperspectral imaging by the industry by providing flexibility in terms of: System exploration and simulation tools Novel camera architectures, including parameterizable templates Novel hyperspectral image processing methods and techniques Mapping, data handling and interpretation strategies for real-time operation Novel measurement strategies Vision lab Paul Scheunders Private international law: the border between european and national rules Abstract: The purpose of this project is to continue my research on the exact delimitation between European and national rules of private international law (PIL). This was the topic of my PhD thesis (2005). Since that time, questions concerning the relation between European and national rules have remained pertinent, even increasingly so. In the first place I would like to collect Belgian case law in which EU legislation on private international law is applied, and assemble this in a database. In the first phase it would be preferable to keep the database internal, and it can be made public at a later stage. In 2003 the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven had set up a website to make public Belgian case law in which European PIL rules were applied. At that time I was working as a teaching and research assistant at that University. The current Institute of Private International Law has however decided to no longer maintain the database, and to terminate the registration of the domain name. They are prepared to transfer the domain name to me. It seems desirable at this stage to update and expand the database. Belgium has no allencompassing central database containing (published and unpublished) case law, while other countries do have such an instrument. The setting up of a database containing PIL case law will be useful for practicing lawyers and for academic researchers in Belgium and abroad. The addition of English summaries will make the case law accessible to a larger public. The database will then be able to contribute to the uniform interpretation of the European legal instruments: the process of making PIL rules uniform in the EU is undeniably linked to the correct and uniform application of those rules in practice (eg by courts). For the collection of the case law and the input in the database, it is necessary to call upon the assistance of job students. Besides the database, I would like to attend to a conference on PIL in April 2011 (and possibly also other conferences) and to buy books relevant for my research. Personal Rights and Property Rights Law Enforcement Thalia Kruger (Meta)genoomanalysen van functionele starterculturen voor een technologische valorisatie in de voedingsindustrie. Abstract: Functionele starterculturen van voedingsfermentatieprocessen zijn starterculturen die vaak uitgebreide metabole capaciteiten bezitten om competitief te zijn in een levensmiddelenmatrix en om aromavorming in en voedselveiligheid van de eindproducten te kunnen garanderen bovenop bijvoorbeeld de productie van melkzuur, waardoor ze in contrast staan met industriële bulkstarterculturen die vaak slecht aangepast zijn aan een specifieke levensmiddelenomgeving, beperkte flexibiliteit vertonen en bijna uitsluitend verzuring beogen. Doorgaans wordt een geschikte functionele startercultuur geselecteerd op basis van voornamelijk fenotypische kenmerken, gesteund op gegevens afkomstig van metabolietanalysen, kinetiekstudies en modellering. Dit is echter geen garantie op een succesvolle selectieprocedure, vermits micro-organismen hun metabolisme kunnen aanpassen om te overleven in bepaalde niche-omstandigheden of onder bepaalde stress-situaties, althans wanneer zij daarvoor het genetisch potentieel bezitten. Bovendien kunnen micro-organismen zoals melkzuurbacteriën negatieve eigenschappen bezitten, zoals antibioticumresisteniegenen, virulentiegenen en genen die coderen voor de productie van ongewenste verbindingen zoals biogene amines. Met deze eigenschappen werd tot voor kort weinig of geen rekening gehouden, maar zij dienen niettemin best grondig genetisch gekarakteriseerd te worden. Het bepalen van de genoomsequentie van functionele starterculturen vormt bijgevolg de ultieme methodologie om het genetisch en derhalve fenotypisch potentieel van een microbiële stam volledig te karakteriseren. Teneinde geschikte microbiële stammen aan te duiden die als functionele starterculturen fermentatieprocessen kunnen controleren, is het noodzakelijk om de soortdiversiteit en de soortdynamica van micro-organismen aanwezig in artisanele levensmiddelenfermentaties grondig te karakteriseren, om vervolgens verbanden te kunnen leggen met de gevormde metabolieten en derhalve de karakteristieken van het gefermenteerde eindproduct. De huidige methoden kunnen echter geen volledig overzicht van de soortdiversiteit en het metaboloom genereren, zodat een globaal overzicht van de populatiedynamica en metabool potentieel van de microbiota betrokken bij levensmiddelenfermentaties uitblijft. Het bepalen van het metagenoom van een staal afkomstig van een bepaalde levensmiddelenfermentatie zal evenwel een uniek inzicht kunnen geven in zowel de soortdiversiteit als het metabool potentieel van de betrokken micro-organismen.

Cochlear Implant Music: Bringing music back into the life of cochlear implant users and fostering their rehabilitation and social integration though musical interaction Abstract: In this project, we develop and test a music instrument for people with a Cochlear Implant (CI) enabling them to create and enjoy music. We will also provide the opportunity to do this together with other CI users and/or other normal hearing people. The instrument will be controlled through gestures, and it will access the electrodes of the Cochlear Implant directly (without using audio). Departement of Art, music and theatre sciences Marc Leman Modelling and pre-distortion of RF power amplifiers Abstract: The radio frequency (RF) power amplifier (PA), an essential part a wireless transmitter, should ideally convert all supplied DC power to RF power while doing this without introducing distortions to the signal. Unfortunately, the PAs used today have low power efficiency, which translates into power wasted as heat, and they introduce linear and nonlinear distortions to the signal. It is possible enhance the linearity, but at the cost of decreased power efficiency, and vice versa. This thesis is motivated by this undesired behavior of the RF PAs. To correct for the sources of undesired behavior, models are needed to describe the behavior. Before a model can be used, the performance must be evaluated to and out whether the model is appropriate or not. Finally, methods to correct for the undesired behavior should be presented. In this thesis, peak-reduction techniques and model based digital predistortion techniques are studied. The thesis starts by introducing and comparing performance evaluation criteria for modeling of RF PAs. These criteria are then used to compare the performance of behavioral models for the reminder of the thesis. PA behavioral models, ranging from early models such as the Saleh model of traveling wave tube (TWT) PAs to newer neural network and Volterra models, have most commonly been proposed in an ad hoc manner. The models have been motivated by extensive measurements on PAs in multiple labs. This is especially true for the particular subset of Volterra models named memory polynomials. However, the lack of theoretical justification for the use of the se behavioral models is clearly a problem. The second part of this thesis addresses this by deriving the memory polynomials starting from a physically motivated feedback model. The derived models includes the popular parallel Hammerstein model and two novel model structures. Merely being able to predict the behavior of a PA is not sufficient when putting it in a system. Methods for correcting the undesired behavior must be implemented as well. This thesis investigates methods for being able to operate the PA at higher output powers through joint signal optimization and predistortion. A problem that arises with many of the predistortion methods is that of instability during the parameter updates, i.e. the predistorter attempts to expand the signal more after each update of the parameters. Two methods to counter this behavior are proposed. The last part deals with modeling and predistortion of a particular kind of PA: class-d outphasing PA. Novel behavioral model structures based on physical knowledge of the outphasing amplifier are presented. A predistorter using constant amplitude signals is then identified. Results in the form of reduction of out-of-band emissions and improvement in modulation quality are shown for two types of modern communication signals, EDGE and WCDMA.

In particular, a polyhedral mesh of the environment is used by a graphic supervision system to run anti-collision algorithms, and a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) representation provides extra information to the human operator through virtual-camera points of view. Moreover, the model can be used by a Physics Engine to simulate contact interactions between the robot and the objects in the virtual scene. After robot deployment, the virtual model has to be matched with the real environment. The aforementioned intervention scenarios typically present narrow operating spaces and poor vision conditions (for example, see Figure 1) due to the presence of physical obstructions to the camera view or blurry signals due to not-transparent media. Therefore, camera-based systems are n Production Engineering, Machine Design a Herman Bruyninckx N. N. BIOSERF: Sustainability of tropical forest biodiversity and services under climate and human pressure Abstract: The general objectives of the BIOSERF proposal are to explore the evolution of the social-ecological system, with a focus on Ecosystem services and assess their sustainability in an area of evergreen tropical forest area under increasing human pressure in DRC. The project aims to study the physical and biological processes that govern the natural regeneration of the forest ecosystem; identify and evaluate some key ecosystem services under the present socio-economic context and explore with the use of a coupled DVM-ABM model, possible future scenarios.

Departement of Plant production Patrick Van Damme Congo basin: from carbon to fishes (COBAFISH). Abstract: The COBAFISH project will address the following four key questions: 1) How diverse are fish communities in two sub-catchments of the Congo River (Lubilu and Lomami) in terms of biodiversity and functional/trophic diversity? 2) Which factors can be identified in regulating this diversity? In order to detect underlying mechanisms, we will provide comprehensive measurements of possible regulating factors, including aquatic primaryproducer abundance, diversity and production, physico-chemical conditions, nutrient status (linked to aquatic productivity), and organic matteravailability and origin. These data will not only be used to support the work on higher trophic levels, but will also be analyzed in the context of furthering our understanding on carbon and nutrient cycling in the Congo basin. 3) To which extent do fish communities in these river systems depend on autochtonous (aquatic) primary production or on lateral allochtonous (terrestrial) production?

Abstract: Lake Kivu, a large African rift lake, has undergone recent changes induces by alien species introduction and possibly climate change, which have affected the lake's biodiversity, productivity and ecosystem resources. The general objective of the EAGLES project is to understand, monitor and forecast how this ecosystem responds to human-induced changes, in order to predict the effects of ongoing and planned exploitation of its resources under different scenarios of climate change. These resources arediverse and are crucial for local and national economies: fisheries, hydroelectric power plants, and industrial CH4 exploitation (to be implemented within the time frame of the proposal). To achieve these goals, theeagles project will adopt an integrated approach within an interdisciplinary network of research teams, combining data mining, remote sensing, moorings, field and laboratory experiments, the use of proxies and numerical modeling, covering surface waters to sediments, and spanning t Division of Geography Nicole Van Lipzig Steven Bouillon Polystress: the role of ploidisation in (a)biotic stress resistance in horticultural crops

Departement of Applied ecology and environmental biology Pascal Boeckx Hans Verbeeck Research into the wood quality boxers (Prunus avium L.) Abstract: not available Departement of Forest and water management Joris Van Acker Modelling atmospheric composition and climate for the Belgian territory. Abstract: The aim of the proposed research is to establish projections of future climate and air quality for Belgium, at an unprecedented spatial resolution, and using the latest insights and parameterizations of processes affecting regional climate and atmospheric composition. The project will be largely based on the "COSMO model in Climate Mode" (CCLM), a state-of-the-art regional climate model. In a development phase, the focus will be on improving and extending this model, by implementing i) an advanced cloud and precipitation microphysics scheme, ii) the radiative effect ofcontrails and iii) vegetation dynamics. In an implementation phase, theupgraded models will be employed to simulate present and future climateand air quality. The CCLM model will be run in nested mode, taking output fields from the EC-EARTH Global Climate Model to specify lateral boundary conditions, covering scales ranging from the European continent to the Belgiam territory at resolutions of km approximately.

Abstract: No English Abstract Quantum Chemistry and Physical Chemistry Shaun Carl Jozef Peeters BIoGeochemical cycles in the SOUTHern Ocean: Role within the Earth System (BIGSOUTH) Abstract: Sound knowledge of the complex processes controlling the exchanges of carbon and other climate gases between functionally differing SO systems (margin impacted systems, open-ocean, sea ice covered systems) and the atmosphere is critically needed. It is crucial to understand and predict spatial and temporal variability of these processes in order to achieve a realistic integrated view of the SO's role as sink-source of climate gases and to evaluate the efficiency of carbon sequestration and its evolution in a changing climate. Therefore, this project focuses on the following key questions: (1) What is the significance of sea ice physical and biogeochemical processes on atmosphere - ocean fluxes of climate gases (CO2, DMS, CH4, N2O) and fluxes of matter (carbon, macro- and micronutrients) to the water column? (2) Can we reconstruct paleo-sea ice extension based on sedimentary records and sound knowledge of sea ice biological and physicochemical processes? (3) How are formation rate, composition, lability and sinking speed of marine biogenic particles related to planktonic community structure and trophic interactions and how do margin systems open ocean and sea ice covered systems, which differ in Fe availability, compare? (4) What are the physical and ecosystem conditions and pathways that lead either to shallow remineralisation or to deep export of organic matter produced in seaice and surface waters? (5) What is the impact of these processes on water column nutrient ratios and nutrient distribution in the Global Ocean? Chemistry
