National significance of natural history collections in Switzerland

Biological and geoscience collections form an important part of our rich scientific heritage and provide the basis for much of what we know today about our planet and how we humans have influenced it. Natural history collections help us to understand our past and present better, thereby providing a basis for predicting the future. They also serve as biobanks for preserving the Earth’s organismic and genomic diversity, and must not only be maintained, but also supplemented so that scientists can continue to
document and explore life on Earth. As new investigative techniques emerge, we can discover more from studying such intact and well-preserved collections.

In December 2018 Swiss scientists – organized by the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics / CHIPP – have formulated their input to the new European Strategy. Günther Dissertori – professor at ETH Zurich, member of the CHIPP Executive Board and incoming Scientific Delegate of Switzerland in the CERN Council – explains the main points of the Swiss strategic input.

Personalisierte Gesundheit

Die medizinische Versorgung war schon immer personalisiert. Mit der personalisierten Gesundheit kommt nun jedoch vor allem eine datenbasierte und molekulare Dimension dazu. Sie birgt Chancen und grosses Potential für die Einzelperson und die Gesellschaft, zieht jedoch auch Risiken und Herausforderungen mit sich.
