Synthetic Biology aims to engineer artificial pathways in cells both to test fundamental notions of how complex biological networks function and to develop new technologies for the treatment of disease. Congratulations to Nili, Miguel, and Sonja on their paper in Science Advances! Congratulations to Nina on beginning defending thesis for phd PhD at the University of Washington!
Congratulations to Joe on receiving an NSF graduate research fellowship! Jimenez on defending his thesis and beginning a postdoc in Steve Langer’s lab at MIT Koch Institute! Congratulations to Andrew and Zhixing on their paper in Chemical Communications! Ng on defending his thesis and beginning as a data scientist at Genetic Intelligence! Sanguineti on defending her thesis and beginning as an assistant program director at Brooklyn College! Patenode on defending her thesis and beginning as a program manager at Womensphere Foundation! Congratulations to Sean on receiving an NSF graduate research fellowship!
Congratulations to Andrew and Annie on their paper in Nature Methods! Develop new tools for probing DNA chemistry and biology. Generate new leads for anti-viral and anti-cancer agents. Develop new diagnostic methods for personalized medicine. Create an environment where innovation and education flourish. Our Approach We use rational design and synthetic organic chemistry to create compounds with interesting physical properties including fluorescence emission, structure-selective DNA binding, and anti-cancer activity.
Our current emphasis is on the development of metabolic labeling strategies for nucleic acids in vivo. Post-doctoral coworkers should have completed a Ph. Those scientists that can bring their own financial support through a grant-awarding institution are particularly welcome. Please submit your application by email or post to Nathan Luedtke. Where to Find Us We located on the Irchel-Campus of the University, see: map.
The Campus is easily reached by public transportation. Take tram 7,9,10,14 or bus 69,72 to either the Irchel or Milchbuck stop. Travel plans and time tables for these trams and buses are available at: Verkehrsbetriebe Zurich. Once you are here, you can identify our buildings on the campus-map.
