New Insights into Kidney Disease with Tropical Frog Models

AI analyzes data from light-sheet microscopy

09-Nov-2021

Using cutting-edge genetic engineering, UZH researchers have developed a model to study hereditary kidney disease with the help of tropical frogs. The method allows them to collect large amounts of data on anomalies, which can then be analyzed using artificial intelligence. The research opens up ...

Microscopy Deep Learning Predicts Viral Infections

Automatic detection of virus-infected cells - solely on the fluorescence of the cell nucleus

23-Jun-2021

When viruses infect cells, changes in the cell nucleus occur, and these can be observed through fluorescence microscopy. Using fluoresence images from live cells, researchers at the University of Zurich have trained an artificial neural network to reliably recognize cells that are infected by ...

Biomarker Detects Severe COVID-19 Early On

SARS-CoV-2-specific immune signature deciphered

10-May-2021

Severe cases of COVID-19 can now be detected at an early stage. Researchers at the University of Zurich have identified the first biomarker that can reliably predict which patients will develop severe symptoms. This can help to improve the treatment of severe cases of COVID-19. Most people who ...

The First Comprehensive Single-Cell Atlas of Human Teeth

The dental pulp and periodontium are susceptible to caries and periodontitis and contain stem cells that have great regenerative potential

29-Apr-2021

Researchers at the University Zurich have mapped the first complete atlas of single cells that make up the human teeth. Their research shows that the composition of human dental pulp and periodontium vary greatly. Their findings open up new avenues for cell-based dental therapeutic ...

Refining Breast Cancer Classification by Multiplexed Imaging

22-Jan-2020

An imaging approach developed at UZH enables the study of breast cancer tissue in greater detail. It uses 35 biomarkers to identify the different cell types in breast tumors and its surrounding area compared to the current standard of testing single markers. This increases the precision of tumor ...

Researchers Observe Slowest Atom Decay Ever Measured

26-Apr-2019

The XENON1T detector is mainly used to detect dark matter particles deep underground. But a research team led by Zurich physicists, among others, has now managed to observe an extremely rare process using the detector – the decay of the Xenon-124 atom, which has an enormously long half-life of ...

Simple and Fast Method for Radiolabelling Antibodies against Breast Cancer

Using UV light, radiolabelled antibodies can be produced in just 15 minutes

24-Apr-2019

Radioactive antibodies that target cancer cells are used for medical diagnostics with PET imaging or for targeted radioimmunotherapy. Researchers from the University of Zurich have created a new method for radiolabelling antibodies using UV light. In less than 15 minutes, the proteins are ...

How Type 1 Diabetes Gradually Destroys Insulin Production

04-Feb-2019

Using the new Imaging Mass Cytometry method, Zurich researchers have investigated the pancreas of healthy organ donors and those with type 1 diabetes. The study shows that many beta cells, which normally produce insulin, are still present in the early stages of the disease, but look very ...

Genome Duplication Drives Evolution of Species

26-Sep-2018

Polyploid plants have a duplicate set of chromosomes. As a result, large-scale genetic changes are therefore possible in the new species, making it more adaptable in comparison with the parental species, as has now been proven by UZH researchers with rockcress. Many wild and cultivated plants ...

New Method Refines Cell Sample Analysis

Innovation in the field of biomedicine

06-Aug-2018

Researchers at the University of Zurich have developed a novel method which increases more than tenfold the number of proteins that can be visualized per sample, making it possible to generate a comprehensive map of cellular organization across the various cellular states. This highly ...
