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 ...

THz spectroscopy could help Explain water's anomalies

29-Jun-2018

Liquid water sustains life on earth, but its physical properties remain mysterious among scientific researchers. Recently, a team of Swiss researchers used existing THz spectroscopy techniques to measure liquid water's hydrogen bonding. Future efforts with this technique could one day help ...

Direct coupling of the Higgs boson to the top quark observed

06-Jun-2018

On 4 July 2012, two of the experiments at the CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS) and CMS (Compact-Muon-Solenoid), reported independently the discovery of the Higgs boson. The discovery confirmed the existence of the last missing elementary particle of the ...

Faster characterization of organic salts

27-Mar-2018

UZH researchers have developed a novel method that speeds up the process of determining crystal structures of organic salts and significantly reduces the effort required to do so. As about 40 percent of all active pharmaceutical ingredients are salts, this new crystallographic method is set to ...

Recovery from spinal cord injuries can be predicted

09-Mar-2018

A trauma to the spinal cord, quickly leads to a progressive loss of nerve tissue. This not only affects the injured area, but over time affects also other parts of the spinal cord and even the brain. These neurodegenerative changes can be explored in detail using magnetic resonance imaging. An ...
