MICROH, which stands for “Microbiomes in One Health”, is a competitive, interdisciplinary PhD training programme, supported by the PRIDE doctoral research funding scheme of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). MICROH aims to study interactions within and between microbiomes in relation to two major healthcare challenges of our time, i.e. the spread of antimicrobial resistance genes and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. MICROH bridges microbiology and big data analytics in a structured doctoral training environment. (+ info)


Catastrophic events occur in various fields and at various levels. Examples include earthquakes, stock market crashes and, for individuals, the onset of diseases such as cancer. If we could understand the critical transitions (CTs) that induce catastrophes, we would be better equipped to prevent them arising or at least to mitigate their effects. Yet, despite much multidisciplinary endeavour, current tools often lack rigorous theoretical foundation and sometimes exhibit poor predictive power. (+ info)
