Opening PhD Fellowships 2016-2017
The Doctoral School of the Faculty of Biology and Medicine (FBM) at Université de Lausanne (UNIL) offers PhD Fellowships in Life Science starting May 2017. The deadline to submit the applications is October 24, 2016. More Information on PhD Fellowhips at UNIL»
A step closer to personalized medicine
The PCT SWATH mass spectrometry technology, developed at ETH Zurich with the support of SystemsX.ch, is the key technology at the newly created ACRF International Centre for the Proteome of Human Cancer (ProCan) in Australia. This technology will be used to rapidly and simultaneously measure precise levels of many thousands of proteins in very small cancer biopsies.
Monitoring cell fates
An international team of researchers led by ETH scientists has been studying the factors influencing the development of different blood cells. Their research shows that certain molecular mechanisms are not as relevant as previously assumed. This finding helps to improve our understanding of diseases such as leukaemia and anaemia.
This research was supported by a SystemsX.ch IPhD grant.

Protein pairs make cells remember
Even single cells are able to remember information if they receive the order from their proteins. Researchers at the University of Basel’s Biozentrum have discovered that proteins form pairs to give the signal for storing information in the cell’s memory. The results of the study have now been published in “Cell Reports”.
This research was supported by the SystemsX.ch RTD Project StoNets.
