  • 1182 Compound with anti-aging effects passes human trial
    14.06.19 - Urolithin A, a metabolite of biomolecules found in pomegranates and other fruits, could help slow certain aging processes. EPFL spin-off Amazentis, in conjunction with EPFL and the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, has published a paper in the journal Nature Metabolism outlining the res... [anonymous]
  • 1181 Striking for greater equality at EPFL
    14.06.19 - EPFL’s campus was one of the sites of the 14 June women’s strike. A UNIL-EPFL collective of female staff and students used the opportunity to deliver a manifesto to EPFL’s Senior Management. On 14 June, a group of around 300 people gathered under the curves of the Rolex Learning Ce... [anonymous]
  • 1180 Carbon-neutral fuels move a step closer
    13.06.19 - Chemists at EPFL have developed an efficient process for converting carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide, a key ingredient of synthetic fuels and materials. The carbon dioxide (CO2) produced when fossil fuels are burned is normally released into the atmosphere. Researchers working on synt... [anonymous]

  • 1178 A new approach to modeling tumors
    11.06.19 - Researchers at EPFL and the University of Lyon have developed a device for creating cell aggregates in a fully controlled manner. Their aim is to model tumors more accurately in order to test potential new treatments.  When researchers develop new therapies, such as for cancer, they n... [anonymous]
  • 1177 The cholera bacterium's 3-in-1 toolkit for life in the ocean
    10.06.19 - The cholera bacterium uses a grappling hook-like appendage to take up DNA, bind to nutritious surfaces and recognise ‘family’ members, EPFL scientists have found. These discoveries will advance our understanding of how the bacterium that causes cholera adapts and survives in its natu... [anonymous]
  • 1176 Decoding Beethoven's music style using data science
    06.06.19 - What makes Beethoven sound like Beethoven? EPFL researchers have completed a first analysis of Beethoven’s writing style, applying statistical techniques to unlock recurring patterns. EPFL researchers are investigating Beethoven’s composition style and they are using statistical tech... [anonymous]
  • 1175 How flow shapes bacterial biofilms
    06.06.19 - EPFL biophysicists have taken a systematic look into how bacterial biofilms are affected by fluid flow. The findings can give us clues about the physical rules guiding biofilm architecture, but also about the social dynamics that shape evolution. Although we tend to think of them as soli... [anonymous]
  • 1174 Decoding Beethoven's music style with statistics
    06.06.19 - What makes Beethoven sound like Beethoven? EPFL researchers have completed a first analysis of Beethoven’s writing style, and they are using statistics to unlock the patterns. their study on a digitalized set of Beethoven’s String Quartets. Beethoven composed his 16 String Quartets ov... [anonymous]
  • 1173 Building on our knowledge of the earth's soils
    05.06.19 - Claire Guenat, a researcher at EPFL, has just published a book – the first of its kind – about the soils of Switzerland and Europe with Jean-Michel Gobat, an honorary professor at the University of Neuchâtel. The book reminds readers of the essential role soils play in the ecosyst... [anonymous]
