Recent theoretical and observational works indicate the presence of a correlation between the star-formation rate (SFR) and active galactic nucleus (AGN) luminosity (and, therefore, the black hole accretion rate, Ṁ_(BH) of Seyfert galaxies. This suggests a physical connection between the gas-forming stars on kpc scales and the gas on sub-pc scales that is feeding the black hole. We compiled the largest sample of Seyfert galaxies to date with high angular resolution (~0.''4-0.''8) mid-infrared… 
Rapidly growing black holes and host galaxies in the distant Universe from the Herschel Radio Galaxy Evolution Project
We present results from a comprehensive survey of 70 radio galaxies at redshifts 1 10(12) L-circle dot) or hyper-luminous (L-tot(IR) > 10(13) L-circle dot) infrared galaxies. We fit the infrared SEDs
The Interplay between Star Formation and Black Hole Accretion in Nearby Active Galaxies
Black hole accretion is widely thought to influence star formation in galaxies, but the empirical evidence for a physical correlation between star formation rate (SFR) and the properties of active
Black hole accretion versus star formation rate: theory confronts observations
We use a suite of hydrodynamical simulations of galaxy mergers to compare star formation rate (SFR) and black hole accretion rate (BHAR) for galaxies before the interaction ('stochastic' phase),
Star formation in AGNs at the hundred parsec scale using MIR high-resolution images
It has been well established in the past decades that the central black hole masses of galaxies correlate with dynamical properties of their harbouring bulges. This notion begs the question of
Nuclear molecular outflow in the Seyfert galaxy NGC 3227
ALMA observations have revealed nuclear dusty molecular disks or tori with characteristic sizes 15−40 pc in the few Seyferts and low -luminosity AGN that have been studied so far. These structures
Gas flows in galactic nuclei: observational constraints on BH-galaxy coevolution
Abstract Galaxy nuclei are a unique laboratory to study gas flows. Their high-resolution imaging in galactic nuclei are instrumental in the study of the fueling and feedback of star formation and

In a complete sample of local 14–195 keV selected active galactic nuclei (AGNs) and inactive galaxies, matched by their host galaxy properties, we study the spatially resolved stellar kinematics and
AGN Feedback and Star Formation of Quasar Host Galaxies: Insights from the Molecular Gas
The molecular gas serves as a key probe of the complex interplay between black hole accretion and star formation in the host galaxies of active galactic nuclei (AGNs). We use CO(2-1) observations
Chandra Observations of Excess Fe Kα Line Emission in Galaxies with High Star Formation Rates: X-Ray Reflection on Galaxy Scales?
In active galactic nuclei (AGNs), fluorescent Fe Kα (iron) line emission is generally interpreted as originating from obscuring material around a supermassive black hole on the scale of a few
Circumnuclear Molecular Gas in Low-redshift Quasars and Matched Star-forming Galaxies
A series of gravitational instabilities in a circumnuclear gas disk (CND) are required to trigger gas transport to a central supermassive black hole (SMBH) and ignite Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs). A
