Impact of Timanian faults on Arctic Tectonics

ArcTec proposes to study (1) the westward extent, kinematics and timing of formation, and (2) reactivation–overprint of Timanian (i.e., ca. 600 million years old) faults during subsequent tectonic events in the Arctic, and to (3) insert these faults into a detailed tectonic evolution model for Sv...

Exploring the underlying mechanIsms of partial leptin reduction towards a non-invasive obesity therapy

Leptin regulates energy balance by functioning as a “satiety signal”. When identified 26 years ago, expectations were high that leptin therapies could be used for the treatment of obesity. In contrast to the successful use of leptin for treatment of individuals with lipodystrophy and complete lep...
