SNSF Advanced Grant for Andreas Lüthi and Peter Scheiffele
The Swiss National Science Foundation has awarded Prof. Andreas Lüthi from the FMI and Prof. Peter Scheiffele from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, a highly endowed SNSF Advanced Grant. With the SNSF Advanced Grants, the SNSF supports leading scientists in Switzerland who take unconventional and often risky paths in their research to gain new insights. More
First ophthalmic gene therapy in Switzerland
We are proud to announce that the first ophthalmic gene therapy in Switzerland has been performed in the Eye Clinic of the University Hospital Basel. The gene therapy is available for patients with Leber congenital amaurosis and retinitis pigmentosa caused by mutations in the RPE65 gene – one out of 280 known disease genes that can cause retinal dystrophies.

Multiple treatments to slow age-related muscle wasting
Everyone wants to stay fit and healthy as they grow old. But as we age, our body degrades, our muscles shrink and strength declines. Some older people suffer from excessive muscle loss, a condition known as sarcopenia. Researchers from the Biozentrum of the University of Basel show that a combination therapy could delay the onset of sarcopenia. This study has recently been published in “Nature Communications”. More
Brain Prize 2022 for Silvia Arber
Prof. Silvia Arber from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, and at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research receives the renowned Brain Prize 2022. With this award, the Lundbeck Foundation recognizes this year's three prizewinners for their pioneering research into the neuronal circuits that control movement.
“We generate tiny brains in the Petri dish"
Professor Verdon Taylor from the Department of Biomedicine at the University of Basel studies the development of the brain from stem cells, including using animal-free methods. Here, he explains which research questions can be answered using this approach – and why animal experiments are still needed. More
ERC Starting Grant for neurobiologist Anissa Kempf
How does our brain control sleep? A five-year European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant is enabling Professor Anissa Kempf at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel to investigate the molecular basis of sleep. More
