Age-related impairments reversed in animal model

Belly fat as a source of chronic inflammation

08-Jul-2020

Frailty and immune decline are two main features of old age. Researchers from the University of Bern and the University Hospital Bern now demonstrate in an animal model that these two age-related impairments can be halted and even partially reversed using a novel cell-based therapeutic ...

Genetic Malfunction of Brain Astrocytes Triggers Migraine

Cingulate cortex may represent a critical hub in the disease

25-Jun-2020

Neuroscientists of the University of Zurich shed a new light on the mechanisms responsible for familial migraine: They show that a genetic dysfunction in specific brain cells of the cingulate cortex area strongly influences head pain occurrence. Migraine is one of the most disabling disorders, ...

Nanosafety research without animal experiments

Risk analyses for nanoparticles

23-Jun-2020

In order to reduce the number of animal experiments in research, alternative methods are being sought. This is a particular challenge if the safety of substances that have hardly been studied is to be ensured, for instance, the completely new class of nanomaterials. To accomplish just that, Empa ...

Using electrical stimulus to regulate genes

Basis for medical implants that can be switched on and off using electronic devices outside the body

02-Jun-2020

A team of researchers led by ETH professor Martin Fussenegger has succeeded in using an electric current to directly control gene expression for the first time. Their work provides the basis for medical implants that can be switched on and off using electronic devices outside the body. This is ...

Mapping Immune Cells in Brain Tumors

Composition of the immune cells of various types of brain tumors with unparalleled precision described

02-Jun-2020

It is not always possible to completely remove malignant brain tumors by surgery so that further treatment is necessary. Researchers from the University of Zurich and the University Hospital Zurich have now been able to describe, with unparalleled precision, the composition of the immune cells of ...

Designing vaccines from artificial proteins

De novo protein design enables the precise induction of RSV-neutralizing antibodies

18-May-2020

Vaccines are one of the most effective interventions to prevent the spreading of infectious diseases. They trigger the immune system to produce antibodies that protect us against infection. However, we still lack efficacious vaccines for many important pathogens, like the flu or dengue fever. ...

Lighting the path for cells

Instructing cells to grow in a particular direction is a long-cherished dream

13-May-2020

ETH researchers have developed a new method in which they use light to draw patterns of molecules that guide living cells. The approach allows for a closer look at the development of multicellular organisms – and in the future may even play a part in novel therapies. Highly complex organisms can ...
