Newsletter 6/2022
Dear reader

We look forward to an interesting fall season full of events and activities. Just to pick a few, we have an event on future food systems and a public tour at the ETH-BSSE Lab for Synthetic Biology in Basel. ZIHP comes up with a new round of its lecture series “Wissen schaf(f) Wissen”, starting with insights in the effects of environmental stress on human health. We also hear an ETH professor talk about personal experiences as a rehabilitation patient. Read more about these and other topics in the newsletter.

Best regards,

Food Day @ETH
Food Day @ETH
This yearly event brings together a diverse audience from academia, industry, government and international organizations for discussions and workshops on food systems innovation and research. The event program looks back on more than 10 years of food system research, education, and dialogue facilitated by the World Food System Center.

Food Day @ETH will kick off with workshops in the afternoon, focusing on scientific topics as well as the role of education and communication in building future food systems. At the plenary session, we will hear from experts what is needed to build food systems that are resilient and sustainable. A networking poster session highlighting ongoing research and Center activities offers participants the chance to interact directly with researchers.

Program and registration see the website.
RESC Online Vorlesung
Launch of RESC online lecture series
The Competence Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering & Science (RESC) at ETH Zurich is pleased to announce the launch of its online lecture series on 28 November 2022. Speakers from the RESC network will give insights into key topics along the continuum-of-care, research, and personal experiences.

In the first edition on 28 November, Roger Gassert (Professor of Rehabilitation Engineering, Head of RELab at ETH Zurich) will share his own personal journey as a patient and identify major challenges in rehabilitation as well as highlights along his path to recovery. The Zoom link will be shared closer to the date. In the meantime, please mark your calendars: 28 November 2022, 12.00 – 13.00.

How STRONG are you? - Study of the Center for Aging and Mobility of the USZ
The Center for Aging and Mobility of the University Hospital is still looking for women and men who are 75 years and older for its ongoing study STRONG through July 2023.

The study will examine the effect of home exercise and whey protein supplementation on the incidence of falls. In addition, the effect of these two measures on muscle health, physical function and quality of life is of interest. The study is a randomized controlled trial.

The study is being conducted under the direction of Prof. Heike A. Bischoff-Ferrari, MD, Director of the Department of Geriatric Medicine at the University Hospital and Head of the Center for Aging and Mobility. For more on the study, see here.
LSZ Impact 2023
Life Science Zurich Impact Conference 2023 - Data for Health
On Tuesday, 23 May 2023, at the Technopark Zurich, the third Life Science Zurich Impact Conference will take place. This time it’s all about “Data for Health”. Big Data and digitalization are rapidly expanding and becoming increasingly important in our healthcare system. It is therefore crucial that entrepreneurs, researchers, and policy makers have access to high value health-data to fully realize its potential in improving health outcomes for all.

Save the date and be part of the conference as a participant, project presenter, investor, sponsor, or exhibitor. Please find attached the Save the date flyer. More information about the conference is found on website.
