Thought-controlled walking again after spinal cord injury
Neuroscientists and neurosurgeons from EPFL/CHUV/UNIL and CEA/CHUGA/UGA report in the journal Nature that they have re-established the communication between the brain and spinal cord with a wireless digital bridge, allowing a paralyzed person to walk again naturally
Designing synthetic receptors for precise cell control
A groundbreaking new technique for engineering biosensors that respond sensitively to specific biomolecules can lead to more precise control over cellular processes for a wide range of therapeutic applications such as cancer treatments.
The School of Life Sciences fosters education, research and innovation at the interface of engineering and biology to advance the understanding of the living world and solve biomedical problems.
We offer a Bachelor and Master program in Life Sciences Engineering, a Master program in Neuro-X, as well as four Doctoral programs.
Our 58 research groups in 5 institutes operate at the interface of biology, basic sciences, computer sciences and engineering.
We cultivate a climate of exploration and translation of knowledge and technologies to a sustainable benefit of humankind.
The School of Life Sciences offers temporary placements for Ukrainian researchers in the broad life sciences (PhD students, postdocs and group leader) from a Ukrainian University or Research Institution for 3-6 months.
