Dr. Steven A. Brown

Universität Zürich, Institut für Pharmakologie und Toxikologie

Steven B. Brown studied biochemistry at Harvard College, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. In 1997 he received his doctorate in the Department of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. From 1998 – 2005 he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Molecular Biology at the University of Geneva in the laboratory of Prof. Ueli Schibler, and began his active work on circadian rhythms (Research Project: The identification of proteins and signalling mechanisms involved in the regulation of mammalian circadian rhythms). In 2006, as a Humboldt Fellow at the Charité in Berlin (Prof. Achim Kramer), he researched the topic “Molecular mechanisms regulating chronotype”. Since September 2006 he is Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Medical Faculty of the University of Zurich.

    Antibiotics with Novel Mechanism of Action Discovered

    Many life-threatening bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to existing antibiotics. Swiss researchers co-headed by the University of Zurich have now discovered a new class of antibiotics with a unique spectrum of activity and mechanism of action – a major step in the fight against a ... more

    Drug resistance: Preventing drugs from being transported

    Certain membrane proteins specialise in transporting molecules out of cells – a problem for the efficacy of cancer medication and antibiotics. An international research team has investigated the transport mechanism of a bacterial membrane protein using an artificially produced antibody frag ... more

    Simple and Fast Method for Radiolabelling Antibodies against Breast Cancer

    Radioactive antibodies that target cancer cells are used for medical diagnostics with PET imaging or for targeted radioimmunotherapy. Researchers from the University of Zurich have created a new method for radiolabelling antibodies using UV light. In less than 15 minutes, the proteins are r ... more

    From the reveller to the lark

    Because of their genes, some people come into the world either as a lark (early riser) or a night-owl (late sleeper). In addition, however, even in normal people, such ”chronotype“ changes with age. Starting at puberty they develop into revellers. At the age of 20 a change occurs and the ... more

q&more – the networking platform for quality excellence in lab and process

The q&more concept is to increase the visibility of recent research and innovative solutions, and support the exchange of knowledge. In the broad spectrum of subjects covered, the focus is on achieving maximum quality in highly innovative sectors. As a modern knowledge platform, q&more offers market participants one-of-a-kind networking opportunities. Cutting-edge research is presented by authors of international repute. Attractively presented in a high-quality context, and published in German and English, the original articles introduce new concepts and highlight unconventional solution strategies.
