Midday sun at the touch of a button
Midday sun at the touch of a button
At ETH Zurich, there is a room where the sun shines at the touch of a button; one hour it's noon in the Sahara, the next it's January in Berlin. Researchers use it to test newly developed building systems, components and materials. How well does the new building material protect against the midday heat in Marrakesh? How must a new façade be printed so that it's not too cold in the Berlin winter and not too hot in the summer? researchers can now simulate this one-to-one in the Zero Carbon Building Systems Lab, a silvery grey building on the Hönggerberg hill.

Clarifying the cause of Guillain-Barré Syndrome
Guillain-Barré Syndrome is a rare condition in which a person's immune system attacks the peripheral nerves. People affected suffer from muscle weakness and paralysis. A research team led by ETH Zurich has now clarified the mechanism of this autoimmune disease. Patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) face a rare and heterogeneous disorder of the peripheral nervous system that is often triggered by preceding infections and causes severe muscle weakness.

How wounds heal - and cancers grow
There are some striking parallels between how skin wounds heal and how malignant tumours grow. Cell culture can help us understand the mechanisms involved - but animal testing still has a role to play.
