Antibodies: Innovating with its bits and pieces

Beichen Gao, M.Sc. (Doctorate Student, ETH Zurich )
Antibody Legos: what can we build with the different bits and pieces?
Antibodies are a vital component in immunity. They recognise foreign threats, they signal the body to active the immune system, and more. But if we take a closer look, antibodies are actually modular, with different components responsible for different functions. Think of it as biological legos if you will. And today, I'll show you how we're taking the different pieces, innovating in new ways to create new therapies that are inspired by than the good old antibodies in our immune systems.

Which sperm is the best: Improving diagnostics for male infertility

Dr Mark Gill (Staff Scientist, University Hospital of Basel )
Infertility affects around 1 in 6 couples globally, with a substantial fraction of cases being driven by factors derived from the sperm. I will discuss how male infertility is currently diagnosed, and why these methods are insufficient to identify all patients with this condition. I will then describe our attempts to expand the repertoire of diagnostic tests (and their analyses) to improve our ability to identify patients with male infertility. Finally, I will offer a view into what may be on the horizon to improve treatment outcomes for infertile patients.
