The Loop Zurich: Second round of the project call in 2021
The Loop Zurich is a translational research center with an initial focus on precision medicine in Zurich. It combines basic biomedical research and bioinformatics from the two universities, ETH Zurich and University of Zurich, with clinical research from four university hospitals. The aim is to quickly develop new treatment methods for the benefit of patients with the help of translational research. As part of the first project call, 22 preliminary applications for research consortia in the field of precision medicine were submitted. The board of directors and the scientific advisory board have evaluated these applications and identified eight project proposals that qualify for the second application round. After a positive decision, the first research projects will be able to start in April 2021.
