The agreement with the University of Bath aims at the implementation of scientific and technological cooperation between researchers from University of Bath and from the State of São Paulo, Brazil, through the funding of joint research projects.
The main purpose of this proposal is build up recent developments by the applicants and their collaborators, namely on three aspects a) development of sensitive and selective DNA aptamer-based electrochemical capacitive sensors, in particular for cancer diagnosis, b) development of e capacitance spectroscopy method capable of providing sensitive direct biomolecular quantification: c) de...
The present work will translate these findings into patients diagnosed with NSCLC. Our aims are to (A) establish the mechanistic role of our biomarkers in cachexia progression (B) to establish the contributing effects of cachexia and cardiorespiratory fitness on NSCLC prognosis and (C) to examine likely immunological mechanisms that explain why cachexia and low cardiorespiratory fitness...
Nanomaterials present great potential to be employed in agriculture. Due to features such as solubity and transport they may be used for the mineral nutrition. The present proposal has two main goals: firstly we aim at investigating the mechanisms of uptake of nutrients supplyed by nanoparticles. The second one covers tunning of particle properties that result in maximum absorption. Thu...
This proposal sets out a research plan to investigate a hierarchical set of model equations that describe complex viscoelastic fluids. Such fluids have memory which makes them challenging to understand mathematically and numerically. These types of fluids (AU)
Identification of cancer-specific markers at an early stage can greatly improve clinical success rate and reduce cancer-related mortality. Screening of cancer markers occurs mainly at centralised laboratories using automated analysers, requiring sample tr (AU)
The investigators will collaborate on the design and pilot execution of a series of experiments on the perception of meaning from Information Visualizations (InfoVis). The work will focus on, but not be limited to various forms of similarity map developed (AU)
