Nano to macro

Tech unleashed

The Faculty of Biology and Medicine (FBM) is thrilled to announce the second edition of its core research facilities event “Nano to Macro: tech unleashed”. The FBM operates 12 state-of-the-art core research facilities that are continuously pushing the boundaries of knowledge in biomedical science by encouraging fundamental, translational and clinical research from the nano to the macro scale. This event is aimed at both fundamental and clinical researchers. It's a unique opportunity to explore state-of-the-art research infrastructures and engage in conversation with the platform directors.

Participate in the event for learning, discussions, and proposing ideas! An aperitif will close the event.

Monday 4 December 2023, 1:00 - 7:00 pm | Auditoire Paternot, Agora | Lausanne

The event is free, but registration is mandatory. Please secure your spot by registering by November 28, 2023.

Core Research Facilites

The Faculty of Biology and Medicine (FBM) at the University of Lausanne (UNIL) operates 12 state-of-the-art facilities that are continuously pushing the boundaries of knowledge in biomedical science by encouraging fundamental, translational and clinical research from the nano to the macro scale.

Our facilities provide cross-disciplinary support to researchers both at UNIL, at the University Hospital CHUV and beyond in fields including structural biology, imaging, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, cytofluorometry, histology, bioinformatics and biostatistics, through a combination of powerful data analysis and unique skills assisting the researchers from the design optimization to the project execution. Staff at our facilities also train users on the different kinds of technology available, through both theoretical instructions and hands-on practice.

At FBM, we regularly incorporate emerging technologies into our platform portfolio, constantly investing into new equipments, IT systems and personnel to help researchers making transformative discoveries. We are willing to establish new facilities in response to the rapid scientific advances and the needs of the researchers.

Dubochet Center for Imaging DCI

The DCI is a simple partnership under the authority of the UNIL rectorate and not of the FBM. Therefore, the DCI is not a faculty platform of the FBM and is in no way bound by agreements concluded between UNIL and external partners regarding the access to or running of the faculty platforms/facilities of the FBM.
