Pint of Science 2024
Pint of Science
Pint of Science is a pop-up science festival where current scientific topics are presented in a simple way by researchers and aimed at a lay audience. Pint of Science brings scientists to your local bar or café to share the latest discoveries in science. Come along for a drink and a bite to eat and be inspired. At four different locations in Zurich, we will talk about artificial intelligence, mental health, sustainability, neuro-engineering, sexually transmitted diseases, the environment, anthropology and much more!

Pint of Science Zürich is taking place on May 13 to 15, 7 to 9 pm at the following locations: Cooper's Pub, Sein, The Alehouse und Norden Bar. See the detailed program here.. No registration required and free entry.

Reatch nanoTalks: Cloudy with a chance of science art
In today’s data-driven world, seeing really is believing. One of the easiest ways to understand data is through visual representations. However, creating helpful visualizations is no easy task. From data that can tell us what the climate was like and is going to be like in the future to fun ways of understanding chemistry, speakers Dr Simon Scherrer (MeteoSchweiz) and Chrysa Chouliara (freelance visual communicator and Visual Communication Specialist at ETH Zürich) will explain how they use data visualization to help bring data and scientific concepts to the public.

Join the event at 18:30 on May 30 2024 in the ETHZ PBLabs space (RZ building, room D8, Clausiusstrasse 59, 8006 Zürich) for these exciting talks and an apéro! More more about the Reatch nanoTalks see here.

3D models for cancer research
ETH Public Tour at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering at ETH Zurich in Basel
How does cancer interact with its environment? This question is the focus of the Laboratory for Systems Physiology at ETH Zurich. Here, liver metastases are investigated in order to better understand the interactions between liver and cancer cells. The researchers use three-dimensional cell models, so-called organoids, to reproduce metastases in the laboratory. You can find out more about this promising research method on a guided tour of the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering at ETH Zurich in Basel (in German). Register on the website.
