An der ETH Zürich musste das Institut für Astronomie schliessen, weil eine Professorin ihre Doktoranden schikanierte. Der Fall ist krass, doch das Wissenschaftssystem der Schweiz hat grundsätzliche Probleme: gestresste Doktoranden, Heerscharen hochqualifizierter Forscher, die niemand braucht, und selbstherrliche Professoren.

Le laboratoire de Schönbein, le Falkensteinerhof à Bâle, classé « Chemical Landmark »

Le 16 novembre 2017, le lieu de travail de Christian Friedrich Schönbein, le Falkensteinerhof, à la Münsterplatz à Bâle, a été classé « Monument historique de la chimie » par l’Académie suisse des sciences naturelles. Le Falkensteinerhof a abrité de 1821 à 1849 la collection scientifique en même temps que le laboratoire de chimie de l’Université de Bâle. C’est là que Christian Friedrich Schönbein, l’un des plus éminents chimistes du 19e siècle, a travaillé à partir de 1828 : il a découvert, entre autres, le principe de la pile à combustible, la nitrocellulose et l’ozone.

Proof-of-Concept Study Reveals Feasibility of Eliminating Rabies in Africa

The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, together with European and African collaborators, carried out a mass dog vaccination in Chad and determined its effect on human rabies exposure.
