    As individuals we are faced with situations that provoke fear and anxiety on a daily basis, whether they be relatively mild, e.g. giving a talk to a group of people, or more serious, e.g. the prospect of losing one's job. Mild fear and anxiety are associated with change...

    In contrast to animals, in which tissue proliferation in adult individuals is often pathological and deleterious, plants have evolved an indefinite growth habit. A remarkable but under-investigated example is the thickening of plant stems and roots: It is a purely poste...

    This proposal aims to increase our understanding of the role of translational failure in human neurodegenerative diseases. We recently discovered the mechanism by which protein misfolding leads to neurodegeneration in prion disease. The pathway involved is a generic cel...

    Isolating ions and atoms from the environment is essential in experiments on a quantum level. For decades, this has been achieved by trapping ions with radiofrequency (rf) fields and neutral particles with optical fields. Our group demonstrated the trapping of ions by i...
