The Biozentrum of the University of Basel is one of the worldwide leading institutes for molecular and biomedical basic research and teaching.
In the training of top qualified scientists for the future to work in universities, industry and the community, the Biozentrum emphasizes a strong research orientation and the close guidance of its students.
In its research, the Biozentrum incorporates the benefits of being international, interdisciplinary and innovative along with having leading-edge technology and highly qualified and motivated employees.
Prof. Fiona Doetsch’s research team at the Biozentrum, University of Basel, has discovered that the choroid plexus, a largely ignored structure in the brain that produces the cerebrospinal fluid, is an important regulator of adult neural stem cells. The study recently published in “Cell Stem Cell” also shows that signals secreted by the choroid...
Even single cells are able to remember information if they receive the order from their proteins. Prof. Attila Becskei’s group at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel has discovered that proteins form pairs to give the signal for storing information in the cell’s memory. The results of the study have now been published in “Cell Reports”.
