Bernd Bodenmiller has been selected to receive the prestigious Friedrich Miescher Award 2019 for his research at the Institute of Molecular Life Sciences of the University of Zurich. The prize is Switzerland's highest distinction for young scientists performing outstanding research in the field of biochemistry.
We are a new department that will foster research and education at the interface of biomedical research, biotechnology, and computational biology to develop the foundations of next generation precision medicine. Our groups currently cover the topics of cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and infectious diseases. Enjoy to browse our website to learn more about our work.
