«Curiosity is always the first step to solving a problem.» Galileo Galilei 


The research of the group of Cell Physiology and Cellular Engineering covers a broad spectrum of cell biology with a focus on human stem cell research, cell-based assays/reporter systems, cellular engineering and immunology (generation of novel antibodies). We support the exchange of knowledge and technology transfer from academic research to applied biotechnology and work closely with various partners in the industry and at universities.

The group consists of a very dedicated and innovative team of experienced academic staff and students in the course of their training.  

Area of expertise

We support our collaboration partners with a high level of competence in specific aspects of cellular biology.

An overview of our areas of expertise are listed below:

Research, development and service

Our activities include teaching, research, development and service. In collaboration with our partners, we support the conversion of ideas into products and develop innovative solutions. A collaboration can be also financially supported by the state research funding (for example Innosuisse, SNF, EU) or be processed in the form of student works (semester, bachelor and master thesis). 


The group of Cell Physiology and Cellular Engineering gives lectures and trainings as part of the Bachelor's and Master's program in Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology and supervise constantly semester, bachelor and master theses to project-specific and interdisciplinary topics .
