Dr. Irmgard A. Werner

Irmgard A. Werner studied pharmacy and completed a doctorate at the ETH Zurich before spending 15 years as a part-time employee at the Kantonale Heilmittelkontrolle Zurich specialising in analysis and quality assurance, during this time raising her two sons. Since 2005 she has been a lecturer at the ETH Zurich, Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences. Together with Ruth Alder and Dani Lüthi she trains students in the practical course “pharmaceutical analytics” as well as a trainee as an analytical chemical laboratory assistant. Chromatographic and spectroscopic methods are mainly used in research and teaching.The focus is on the interest in chiral impurities and separations. In addition, everyone is involved in the development and improvement of monographs of the European and Swiss pharmacopoeia. The analytical knowledge is the basis for various projects with industry and for basic courses in the field of chromatography.

    Platinum nanoparticles for selective treatment of liver cancer cells

    In recent years, the number of targeted cancer drugs has continued to rise. However, conventional chemotherapeutic agents still play an important role in cancer treatment. These include platinum-based cytotoxic agents that attack and kill cancer cells. But these agents also damage healthy t ... more

    The stiffest porous lightweight materials ever

    Researchers at ETH have developed and manufactured a family of architectures that maximises the stiffness of porous lightweight materials. It’s practically impossible to develop stiffer designs. 3D printing and other additive production techniques make it possible to manufacture materials w ... more

    Designer emulsions

    ETH material researchers are developing a method with which they can coat the droplets with controlled interfacial composition and coverage on demand in an emulsion in order to stabilise them. In doing so they are fulfilling a long-held dream of researchers and industry. Mayonnaise is a pri ... more
