  • 06/03/2023 Today, Ece Yildiz published a new study in eLife describing the role of hepatic lipid overload in biliary epithelial cell activation. Congratulations Ece!
  • 01/10/2022 Today, our lab received a prestigious SNSF grant. Congratulations to the whole team!
  • 15/09/2022 Today we welcome a new Ph.D. student to our team. A very warm welcome to Adrien Faure who will be working on liver intermediary metabolism!
  • 26/08/2022 Congratulations to Dr. Nadia Bresciani who brilliantly defended her thesis today!
  • 27/03/2022 Today a review article is published by @SchoonjansLab in Nature metabolism about the role of bile acid signaling in the regulation of energy homeostasis. We describe the history of bile acids and their function as metabolic gatekeepers through the activation of TGR5 and FXR. Congrats to Alessia Perino!
  • 20/01/2022 Today, we welcome a new postdoc in our lab. A very warm welcome to Sulagna Mukherjee!
  • 25/05/2021 Today, a new study by
    @SchoonjansLab highlights how bile acids reach the hypothalamus after feeding and induce satiety by activating TGR5 in the AgRP neurons.
  • 01/04/2021 Today, our lab publishes a comprehensive review about the state of research in the field of bile acid signaling in Physiological Reviews.
  • 01/04/2021 Today a new technician joins our team, a very warm welcome to Jéromine Imbach.
  • 29/03/2021 Welcome to Baptiste Armingaud, a new Master’s student in our lab.
  • 01/03/2021 Today, we welcome Antoine Jalil, a new post-doc in our team

  • 17/09/2020 Congratulations to Giovanni Sorrentino who managed to publish two exciting papers in 2020, despite the COVID! His first paper describes how mechano-modulatory synthetic niches can help to derive liver organoids. The second paper explains how bile acids promote regeneration of the intestinal epithelium via activation of TGR5 in intestinal stem cells. 
  • 01/03/2020 2020 is starting very well for the Schoonjans lab as our team was just awarded, together with Prof. Matthias Lutolf, a Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Foundation grant in the fields of metabolism and nutrition.
  • 01/10/2019 The Schoonjans lab obtained a highly competitive SNSF grant to study the role of the bile acid receptor TGR5 in stem cells.
  • 01/01/2019 A very warm welcome to our new secretary, Rita Heiniger.
