This proposal aims to initiate the collaboration between two teams of C-CIA (Climate Change Impacts and Risks in the Anthropocene) lab of UNIGE and HECL (Hydrology and EcoClimate Lab) of Yonsei. In this study, we are interested in understanding historical drought events across the Pacific, including Central South America and South East Asia with the data from the multiple sources. HECL, expertized in the drought analysis over the globe, plans to construct the drought index such as SPEI (Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index) over the regions across the Pacific using historical climate data sets such as NCEP and CRU.
Real drug usage and post market surveillance remains a challenge. While there is a lot of information available on drugs due to regulatory processes, it has been shown that social media can help identify new drug related information (reference, Pubmed ID 27311964, 26776212, 26163365). The use of social media information streams and interactions is an important new source of data for drugs, especially to evaluate the effects of drugs outside the controlled settings of trials.
Maintenance of calcium homeostasis and control of oxidative stress in the cytosol and organelles are important for cellular function and survival. Persistent metabolic stress caused by unhealthy lifestyle deteriorates cellular and organellar functions, in particular in individuals with genetic susceptibility to type 2 diabetes. This disease affects 380 million people worldwide and is steadily increasing in the wake of the obesity epidemic. Accumulating evidence suggests pathophysiological implication of mitochondria and ER leading to irreversible loss of normal cell function.
With the theme, “Main Challenges for Christian Theology Today,” for the collaborative research project of UNIGE-Yonsei Seed Funding, we present a 3-year-long proposal. With this project, we seek to create a theological partnership between our two Theological Faculties (University of Geneva, Yonsei University). We envision a three-year program as follows: “Religious Pluralism or Religious Multiple Belonging? Comparative Approaches.” In an age of the so-called migration of Christianity to the East and the South, religious identity is in flux.
The Project intended as a “Tier 1 seed grant” builds on previous research and expertise of both Geneva and South Korea based teams on the insertion of emerging economies in the global economy and their role within the current institutional framework. The seed proposal would lead to a wider project to be submitted to funding agencies such as the Swiss Network of International Studies (SNIS) and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). The project will analyse the causes for emerging and middle powers to create new groupings and institutional settings,
