Insect Antibiotic Provides New Way to Eliminate Bacteria

16-Nov-2018

An antibiotic called thanatin attacks the way the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria is built. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now found out that this happens through a previously unknown mechanism. Thanatin, produced naturally by the spined soldier bug, can therefore be used ...

Larvae Help in Search for Appetite Suppressants

Zebrafish as a novel testing system for psychoactive substances

02-Nov-2018

Researchers at the University of Zurich and Harvard University have developed a new strategy in the search for psychoactive drugs. By analyzing the behavior of larval zebrafish, they can filter out substances with unwanted side effects right from the start. This method has resulted in the ...

Larger Families Reduce Cancer Risk

Greater family size reduces the risk not only in women but also in men

11-Oct-2018

Researchers from the Institute of Evolutionary Medicine of the University of Zurich and the Adelaide Medical School have analyzed data from 178 countries and found a link between family size and cancer risk. Worldwide the incidence of various types of cancer increases with smaller family size. ...

Eco-Friendly Nanoparticles for Artificial Photosynthesis

Quantum dots of indium phosphide and zinc sulfide using sunlight

02-Oct-2018

Researchers at the University of Zurich have developed a nanoparticle type for novel use in artificial photosynthesis by adding zinc sulfide on the surface of indium-based quantum dots. These quantum dots produce clean hydrogen fuel from water and sunlight – a sustainable source of energy. They ...
