Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common movement disorder characterized by the progressive loss of dopaminergic cells in the substantia nigra pars compacta. Accumulating evidence indicates that the interactions between genetic and environmental factors cause PD. Although several monogenic mutations linked to rare familial PD have been identified, other genetic determinants causative for sporadic PD, ...

Comment l’échelle d’observation d’un phénomène peut-elle influencer la recherche? À quelles conditions est-il possible de passer d’une échelle à une autre? Ce passage, que l’on métaphorise souvent en termes de distance, est-il discontinu ou continu? Quel rôle joue l’instrumentation, la modélisation et les outils numériques dans ces divers niveaux d’analyse? Les mêmes questions se posent ...

The present approaches pursued in artificial synthesis are introduced, encompassing water photolysis, photoelectrocatalytic carbon dioxide reduction and (photo)electrochemical ammonia synthesis. Photoelectrochemical water splitting with monolithic devices has progressed rather far with record efficiencies beyond 18% solar-to-hydrogen generation1-3. These systems and their underlying approaches will be reviewed and the remaining challenges are addressed including possibilities in ...

ChE-605 - Highlights in Energy Research seminar series Vapor phase deposited perovskite layers allow the preparation of efficient solar cells. The different type of sublimation methods will be briefly discussed focusing in on co-evaporation using multiple sources and single source methods. The latter requires the previous preparation of perovskites for which we use solid state ... Read more about "Vapor Phase deposited Perovskites"

Abstract Within the shallow subsurface, soil, rock, fluids, gases and living organisms are in close interaction: the macroscopic resulting phenomena derive from the coupling between fluid flow, solutes mixing and microorganisms displacement, growth and adaptation. The common challenge in all these processes is their spatial variability (heterogeneity). The consequent complexity that rises from the coupling ...

Membrane proteins carry out a myriad of cellular functions such as ion conduction, metabolite transport, and signaling. Solid-state NMR spectroscopy allows us to obtain detailed atomic information of membrane protein structures and dynamics that underlie these functions. I will present our investigations of the structure and dynamics of two viral membrane proteins. The influenza virus ...

As computation becomes central to scientific research and discovery, new questions arise regarding the implementation, dissemination, and evaluation of computational- and data-enabled methods that underlie scientific claims. Reproducibility in research can be interpreted most narrowly as a simple trace of computational steps that generate scientific findings, and most expansively as an independent re-implementation of an ...
