Professor Angelika Steger is full professor for Computer Science at the Institute of Theoretical Computer Science at ETH Zurich. Her main research interests are probabilistic methods and randomized algorithms, graph theory, analysis of discrete structures, and combinatorial optimization.
Professor Heidi Wunderli-Allenspach’s research has focused on physicochemical and cell biological aspects of drug absorption, distribution and elimination in the body. It has involved establishing relevant in vitro models for the blood-brain-barrier as well as for epithelial barriers to study the transport of drugs, and the interaction of drugs and excipients with membranes and cells, under standardized conditions.
Professor Josef Zeyer is a former full professor for Environmental Microbiology at the Institute of Biogeochemistry and Pollutant Dynamics. His main studies focus on the microbial structures and functions in terrestrial and aquatic systems. Central research topics include the characterization of microorganisms using molecular methods, the microbial production and oxidation of methane in polar and alpine wetlands, the microbial degradation of pollutants, and the interaction of microorganisms and plants in pioneer sites such as forefields of retreating glaciers.
