We bid farewell to Dr. Thomas Auer and his lab members, Justine Pascual and Enrico Bertolini, who have moved to the Department of Biology at the University of Fribourg on September 1st.

We wish them all the best in their new group at the University of Fribourg!

Welcome to the Larsch lab!

The CIG is delighted to announce the arrival of the Larsch lab in the department.

The lab is hosted on the 4th floor of the Genopode building. New lab members will join the group in the following months.

We warmly welcome Johannes Larsch’s lab and hope you have reserved a warm welcome for them as well !

Welcome to Andrey!

Hello there! I’m Andrey, a physicist from Saint Petersburg. Although my expertise lies in Semiconductor Physics with a PhD, I’ve always had a passion for Biology and found inspiration in the beauty of Nature. My PhD thesis focused on label-free DNA detection and identification with semiconductor nanoelectronic devices.
Following my doctoral studies, I became a postdoc at the Lab of Nanoscale Biology at EPFL, where I researched artificial nanopores – tiny holes in semiconductor membranes that mimic cells’ ionic channels.
Now, I’m excited to be part of GTF, using my nanopore expertise to develop new technology for DNA library qualification in NGS. 
I am always happy to chat about technologies and how we can use the perks of material science in biotech. Else I am passionate about playing music.
See you around!
