Systems biology meets epigenetics:

Scientists from the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research and the Biozentrum of the University of Basel have published an important proof-of-principle study. These results are also important for the RTD Project «Cell Plasticity» as the same approach is applied to other models of differentiation and disease within this project.

The rules of change: long-term imaging of brain plasticity

The team of Prof. Helmchen from the RTD Project «Neurochoice» developed a new method for long-term investigations of neuronal plasticity in the living mouse brain, which has implications for understanding pathological changes in neurological disorders.more »


Virus exploits cellular waste disposal system

ETH-researchers demonstrate how vaccinia virus manipulates the cellular waste-disposal system and thereby cleverly tricks the cell into assisting the intruders replication. Now, the virologists have turned the tables, using inhibitors of this cellular waste-disposal system as a way to block virus infection.

Trifunctional molecule decodes cellular communication

How does one define the factors on the surface of human cells to which a molecule of interest binds? This question is typically hard to answer. Researchers of ETH Zurich have developed a new technology that enables such investigations in the context of living cells. They successfully applied this technology to virus and cancer research.
