    Coupled Map Lattices (CML) of an unbounded media appear as a result of time and space discretization of evolutional partial differential equations but can also be viewed as original phenomenological models of the medium. I will present the dynamical systems approach to study the global behavior of solutions of CML. In particular, I will describe the dynamics of the evolution operator on the set of traveling wave solutions of CML and discuss the phenomenon known as spatio-temporal chaos. I will illustrate this phenomenon in the particular example of CML associated with the famous FitzHue-Nagumo equation that describes propagation of voltage impulse through a nerve axon. When the leading parameter of this equation varies the dynamics undergoes several stages presenting Morse-Smale type dynamics, strange attractors and Smale horseshoes.

    The replacement of fossil fuels by a clean and renewable energy source is one of the most urgent and challenging issues our society is facing today, which is why intense research is devoted to this topic recently. Nature has been using sunlight as the primary energy input to oxidize water and generate carbohydrates (a solar fuel) for over a billion years. Inspired, but not constrained, by nature, artificial systems [1] can be designed to capture light and oxidize water and reduce protons or other organic compounds to generate useful chemical fuels. In this context this contribution will present a variety of molecular water oxidation catalysts based on transition metal complexes, together with their activity in homogeneous phase and anchored on solid surfaces to generate electro- and photo-anodes. A detailed analysis of their performance will be discussed.

    AbstractShow full text abstract about Efforts to describe mechanisms of de novo and adaptive resis...»
    Efforts to describe mechanisms of de novo and adaptive resistance to BRAF and MEK inhibitors in melanoma have provided evidence of a convergent resistance phenotype defined by neural crest markers. Cells with this phenotype have been described as slowly cycling and invasive in comparison to isogenic cells with expressing melanocyte differentiation markers. Additionally, these neural crest-like cells utilize receptor tyrosine signaling to drive survival pathways and oxidative phosphorylation as their primary metabolic feature. These insights have provided new leads for therapeutic intervention to target these resistant cells. In parallel work, tumors that are not responsive to immune checkpoint antibodies have been found to have many of the same features: most notably loss of melanocyte lineage antigens and expression of neural crest markers. These data suggest that similar next-generation therapeutic strategies aimed at overcoming therapeutic resistance may be useful in combination with both MAPK pathway and immune checkpoint inhibitors.
