Researchers at ETH Zurich are growing human brain-like tissue from stem cells and are then mapping the cell types that occur in different brain regions and the genes that regulate their development. The human brain is probably the most complex organ in the entire living world and has long ... more

Felix Kurth studied bioengineering at the Technical University Dortmund (Germany) and at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (Sweden). During his PhD studies at ETH Zurich (Switzerland), which he completed in 2015, he developed lab-on-a-chip systems and methods for quantifying mechanobiological responses at the single-cell level, particularly the characterization of mechanosensitive cation channels. His current research focuses on the implementation of mechanosensitive transmembrane protein complexes in artificial cellular structures.
