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.

    Water that never freezes

    Can water reach minus 263 degrees Celsius without turning into ice? Yes it can, say researchers from ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, if it is confined in nanometre-scale lipid channels. Making ice cubes is a simple process: you take a plastic ice-cube tray like you’d find in most h ... more

    First bacterial genome created entirely with a computer

    Scientists at ETH Zurich have developed a new method that greatly simplifies the production of large DNA molecules containing many hundreds of genes. With this method, they have built the first genome of a bacterium entirely designed by a computer algorithm. The method has the potential to ... more

    A special phenomenon in magnets

    Researchers from the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI in Villigen and the ETH Zurich have discovered a special phenomenon in magnets. This phenomenon takes place at the nanoscale and enables magnets to be assembled in unusual configurations, which could also be useful for computer technology and ... more
