Here is a summary of the relevant stories for the year 2010.
On December the 17th, Andreas Binkert brilliantly defended his thesis entitled: "Multiplexing and Miniaturizing Microarrays for High-Sensitivity Proteomics"
Dr. Takumi Sannomiya received the ETH Medal for his thesis on Optical BioSensing Based on Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance - Experiments & Simulations
On November 16th Ana Sala Roca succesfully defended her thesis entitled:
"Engineering in vitro environments to study cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions."
This year our yearly group retreat took place in Flims.
We could all share our research progresses, open scientific discussions and think about the future of the lab.
We also enjoyed the beauty of the Caumasee with some local food.
After a walk in the forest we reached the breathtaking Swiss Grand Canyon.
Finally we tried to follow Tarzan in his steps (or jumps) in the local tree-climbing park. Pretty intense group retreat with a lot of fun!
On August 31st Robert MacKenzie successfully defended his thesis entitled: "Nanowires and Ordered Nanosystems for Simultaneous Optical and Electrochemical Sensing."
Dr. Marta Bally received the Materials Research Prize for her PhD work in 2010.
Prayanka, who originates from India, is a biotechnologist who has recently completed her Master in Biophysics and Photonics from Ecole Normale Supérieure, in France. She started in December 2009 and will be working on “In vivo RNA studies”.
Bernd is an electrical engineer from Vienna University of Technology. He started on the first working day in 2010 as a new PhD student in the group and will be working on nanowire biosensing as part of a Nanotera project.
