Radiochemistry at ETH Zurich

As of December 10, 2020, the ETH Zurich appointed PSI’s Prof. Dr. Patrick Steinegger as assistant professor of radiochemistry (tenure track) in the Laboratory of Inorganic Chemistry (LAC), Department of Chemistry and applied Biosciences (D-CHAB). Thus, the ETH domain took first counter measures against the imminent loss of radiochemical expertise in Switzerland, emphasized in the “Weissbuch Radiochemie Schweiz” by the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT). In parallel, the December issue of CHIMIA of the Swiss Chemical Society invited to present the diverse radiochemical activities throughout the country.
