Prof. Dr. Petra S. Dittrich

Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH Zürich), Departement Biosysteme

Petra Dittrich is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering at ETH Zurich (Switzerland). She studied chemistry at Bielefeld University and the University of Salamanca (Spain). After completing her doctoral studies at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen (Germany) and her postdoctoral work at the Institute for Analytical Sciences in Dortmund, she was Assistant Professor of Bioanalytics at the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences at ETH Zurich from 2008 to 2014. Her research focuses on the miniaturization of bioanalytical methods, especially for cell and membrane analysis and for the creation of artificial cells. In 2015, Petra Dittrich received the Heinrich Emmanuel Merck Prize for her work in the field of singlecell analysis with immunological methods.

    Liquid shock absorbers

    Remarkable liquid materials called colloids stiffen under impact. Researchers funded by the SNSF have studied the effect of powerful impacts such as those produced by firearms or micrometeorites. At first glance, colloids resemble homogeneous liquids such as milk or blood plasma. But in fa ... more

    How much does life weigh?

    ETH researchers have developed a scale for measuring cells. It allows the weight of individual living cells, and any changes in this weight, to be determined quickly and accurately for the first time. The invention has also aroused significant interest both in and outside the field of biolo ... more

    Holograms for molecules

    Much can be detected in blood or urine: viral illnesses, metabolic disorders or autoimmune diseases can be diagnosed with laboratory tests, for instance. But such examinations often take a few hours and are quite complex, which is why doctors hand the samples over to specialist laboratories ... more
