Development of a web-based food frequency questionnaire
The aim of this study is to develop a web-based food frequency questionnaire (eFFQ-CH), using the menuCH photo book and the framework of a food frequency questionnaire developed at ZHAW Wädenswil (the ZHAW FFQ). The development work will follow a unique approach based on the results of the menuCH Survey, the first national, representative ...
Molecular mechanism of bacteriophage tail spike proteins in bacterial infection
Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic microorganisms is rapidly increasing worldwide which urgently calls for novel agents and innovative solutions for the treatment of bacterial infections. Bacteriophages (phages) infect and inactivate bacteria in a highly specific manner. Therefore, exploitation of phages represents a highly promising alternative ...
NanoPAT: Process Analytical Technologies for Industrial Nanoparticle Production
Nano-scaled materials are abundant in different stages of industrial manufacturing. Physical and chemical properties of these materials are strongly dependent on their size. Characterisation of mean size, size distribution, and shape of nano-scaled particles is very critical for the quality and efficiency of manufacturing processes. Yet, ...
Prototypes for the Sustainable Digitisation of University Teaching
The COVID-19 Pandemy has forced higher education into fast forwarding their digitisation across the board. This creates valuable and relevant information for the sustainable digitization beyond the crisis mode. The project structures evidence-based digital teaching exsperiences and digital competences at the departments Life Science and Facility ...
Acceptance of an app for contact-tracing of SARS-CoV-2 in the Swiss population
The survey of 1929 adults in Switzerland in the period from 17 - 26 April 2020 suggests that a large majority of the population in any case or probably intends to a) install an app for contact-tracing of SARS-CoV-2, b) report infections in the app and c) comply with the app's request for contact reduction or domestic quarantine. The survey was ...
