Viviane Tschan received this year’s Marie-Curie Award for a new concept of radioligand therapy of prostate cancer.
PSI researchers have developed a new method to attach proteins to the surface of virus-like particles.
PSI is engaging in public outreach at a major event in Zürich, the "Scientifica" Science Days September 4 and 5.
Prof. Dr. Roger Schibli has been elected a Council Member 2020-2022 of the European Society for Molecular Imaging - ESMI
European Society for Molecular Imaging - ESMI
The ESMI represents and advocates IMAGING SCIENCE
The ESMI is providing an international, interdisciplinary platform for knowledge exchange in the field covering basic sciences, translational aspects as well as clinical applications.
Single-particle cryo-electron microscopy of a functional Aβ42 pore equivalent, created by fusing Aβ42 to the oligomerizing, soluble domain of the α-hemolysin toxin, offers new insights into structure and function of proteins forming amyloid aggregates in Alzheimer’s disease.
Using a combination of computer simulations and laboratory experiments, PSI researchers have identified new binding sites for active agents on the vital protein tubulin.
Imaging and sequencing techniques combined with machine learning offer researchers countless opportunities to look inside cells with greater precision than ever before. G.V. Shivashankar, lab head at PSI, describes how such information can be used to find answers to pressing questions.
Dr. Petr Skopintsev received PSI Thesis Medal 2021 for his work on the sodium pump KR2.
The European Research Council (ERC) is funding an interdisciplinary collaborative project with 10 million euros for the structural and biophysical analysis of selected photoreceptors and their development into "OptoGPCRs", light-controlled molecular switches with a wide range of applications in biology and medicine.
