An international research team at SwissFEL of PSI has discovered how an enzyme repairs DNA damage with the help of sunlight.
Scientists at PSI have used mechanical stimuli to turn connective tissue cells into stem-cell-like cells and transplanted these into damaged skin tissue. This speeds up the regeneration of the skin and the healing of wounds.
Every year the PSI Founder Fellowship Programme supports new ideas for innovative applications with up to 150,000 Swiss francs.
Assessments by PSI energy expert Thomas J. Schmidt
PSI researchers take pictures of cell nuclei using modern high-resolution imaging techniques, employ learning algorithms to comb through these data, and thus can more reliably identify anomalies.
Researchers at ETH Zurich and PSI are participating in two quantum computing projects that are being financed by the US research funding agency IARPA.
PSI researchers make physical and chemical changes in batteries visible.
Each cell in the human body contains a cytoskeleton. Contrary to what the name suggests, the cytoskeleton is far more than just a support structure.
The cytoskeleton is a little marvel. Probing it promises to reveal, among other things, new possibilities for cancer therapy.
High throughput experiments will enable new structural biology users to benefit from XFEL light.
The SLS is shutting down temporarily as it undergoes a major upgrade.
A place for cutting-edge research: PSI researchers to receive comprehensive funding from the US NIH for their brain research.
Researchers at PSI have taken a closer look at a previously disregarded factor in the formation of clouds. This could improve the accuracy of climate forecasting.
The electrification of transport is increasing. This means, more batteries are needed. However, some of these batteries contain an extremely problematic raw material: cobalt. PSI is researching alternatives.
The research institutes of the ETH Domain are strengthening their cooperation in strategic areas.
Christian Wäckerlin talks about fundamental research into novel nanowires and their potential applications.
On 15 August 2023 a patient suffering from oesophageal cancer was treated with proton beam therapy at PSI – for the very first time in Switzerland.
With the help of muons, PSI researchers were able to determine the origin of the material used for an arrowhead.
