"The immune system and pathogens both use membrane pore-forming proteins to penetrate cellular membranes, in order to kill target cells or to allow passage of pathogenic organisms such as malaria parasites, listeria, or toxoplasma. For both fundamental and practical reasons, it is important to understand the biological actions of the ""arms race"" underlying virulence, pathogenesis and immune defe ...

Most historians work in archives, but generally have not made archives into their primary object of research. While we tend to be preoccupied by documentary loss, what is striking is the sheer amount of paperwork preserved over the centuries. We need to study the reasons for this preservation.This project wishes to study the history of the archives and of the chanceries that oversaw their producti ...

Are gender inequalities in levels of work/life stress apparent among those positioned at the powerful top of society’s hierarchy, and if so, why? This proposal outlines a research project that investigates the mechanisms behind gender and individual-level work/life stress among political elites (national parliamentarians) using a comparative perspective between three country cases: UK, Sweden and ...

The project aims to investigate the practices and modes of association of anti-war activists in Brazil and in the UK, while formulating an interaction ritual theory that places emotions and synchronicity at the centre of social process. Building on interaction ritual chains theory (Randall Collins), I articulate a notion of synchronicity that emerges from a theorisation of the relationship between ...

Mine wastes are unwanted, currently uneconomic materials found at or near mine sites. Volumetrically they are one of the largest waste streams in the European Community and also at a global scale and they often contain high concentrations of elements such as aluminium (Al) that can have severe effects on ecosystems and humans.The risks posed by exposure to Al are controlled by the reactivity of Al ...

The exponential growth in the number of cores requires radically new software development technologies. Many expect 100,000-core platforms to become commonplace, and the best predictions are that core failures on such an architecture will be common, perhaps one an hour. Hence we require programming models that are not only highly scalable but also reliable. The project aim is to scale the radic ...

Bacterial pathogenesis is closely linked to the biogenesis of fimbrial adhesins. Up to date 7 different types of secretion systems involved in assembling such structures are defined. However, recent data on the CupB secretion system described in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, indicate that this is the first time a hybrid secretion system is described, as it contains proteins of both the type Vb Two-Partn ...

The transfer of peptide segments into the lipid bilayer to form stable transmembrane helices is the crucial first step in membrane protein folding and assembly. However, the mechanisms that drive this process are not fully understood. A recent experimental assay has measured the insertion of designed peptide sequences into the endoplasmic reticulum membrane via the cellular translocon machinery. T ...
