This year's exam session Coincides with the month of Ramdan, so many Muslim students will be fasting during the day while preparing for exams. The GMU (Groupe Musulman Universitaire) have decided to help them by serving the breakfast (IFTAR) on campus so that they profit fully from their time in preparing the exams.

This symposium, hosted by the EPFL Brain Mind Institute, will take place at the ROLEX Learning Center on the EPFL campus in Lausanne on September 4th and 5th 2017. Recent studies have implicated the interconnectedness of neurons within circuits as a critical factor in selective vulnerability to neurodegenerative disease. In this 2-day program leaders from ...

Prof. Davey fundamental research interest focuses on understanding the structural and dynamical features of chromatin assembly and how this could yield unique therapeutic possibilities. Davey’s lab has analyzed nucleosome structure and stability with many different DNA fragments to derive a general mechanical model that helps explain and predict the sequence-dependent properties of this system. His ... Read more about "X-Ray Crystal Structure of a Chromatosome—the Fundamental Nucleosome-Linker Histone Assembly of Chromatin"

Interactions at material surfaces and interfaces have been among the most active areas of research in the last decade [1, 2]. This activity can be attributed to the important role that surface reactions play in a wide range of technological applications, including interfacial chemistry, Nanotechnology and photovoltaics. However, the ability to access carrier dynamics selectively ...
