Many people live without knowing they run a risk of suffering from serious diseases. They have no known risk factors, but nonetheless develop cardiovascular diseases or serious kidney disease. If they could be identified and helped in time, thousands of people could be spared suffering and premature death. Olle Melander at Lund University is looking for new tests and preventive therapies.
Logic, as a science, is a cornerstone for philosophy, mathematics and computer science. In an interdisciplinary project, logician and Wallenberg Academy Fellow Graham Leigh will intertwine the three.
The researchers in Lund have selected three proteins for the project.
Can a problem be solved well enough within a reasonable time – or is it impossible because it demands excessive computational resources? These are questions being examined in a research project at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, where basic mathematical research may yield results with major implications.
