The D-BSSE is one of the ETH Zurich's youngest departments and the only one located in Basel outside of the Zurich campus. The unique blend of researchers in this department makes it an exciting venue for academics interested in biological questions.


What kind of research do we do?

The D-BSSE includes researchers from disciplines such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science (Informatics), and Engineering. The collective aim of the department can be summarized as follows:

1. Discover new facts about the functionality of living systems

2. Take these new findings and try to model them

3. Use the resulting models to devise and engineer novel biosystems
