Après une formation en pathologie vétérinaire, je me suis spécialisée, depuis 1993, dans le e-learning. L’implémentation de ces méthodes d’enseignement dans différents curriculum me permet de relever de nouveaux défis, tant du point de vue du concept que de celui de la programmation. Je verrai ainsi se réaliser un vieux rêve d’étudiante: pouvoir étudier à son rythme et selon ses horaires propres!
I studied biochemistry at the University of Fribourg and have completed a Ph.D. in molecular immunology at the Institute of Virology and Immunoprophylaxis in Bern. My scientific interests are focused on innate immune responses and inflammation in the context of viral infections.
Ancien joueur de rugby, membre de l'équipe nationale roumaine des étudiants, j'ai émigré en Suisse en 1981. Après un emploi dans un garage en ville de Fribourg, j'ai été engagé par l'unité d'histologie comme technicien. Je suis responsable du bon fonctionnement de l'équipement pour l'enseignement et la recherche. Dans mon temps libre je fais encore du sport et je m'occupe de mes petits enfants.

After finishing my medical studies in Russia 1980, I joined the Department of Anatomy in Berlin, went for 2 years as a postdoc to Sofia University (Bulgaria) and Ulm University (Germany), and came in 1996 to Fribourg (Switzerland). My scientific interest is focused on developmental neurobiology. The teaching responsabilities includes all parts of anatomy (macroscopy, microscopy, embryology).
I completed my Masters in Animal Biotechnology at the university of Hyderabad where I worked in the field of neuroscience for one year. I decided to continue my studies in this challenging field of research and accepted a PhD studentship at the University of Fribourg.
Béat Brüsch est un passionné de communication visuelle. Le design d’interfaces graphiques lui pose des défis captivants dans les domaines de l’architecture de l’information et de l’ergonomie. «L’imagerie et l’illustration, sont des disciplines très exigeantes dans le cadre d’un projet didactique.»
Après mon apprentissage de laborantine en biologie, j'ai travaillé à l'institut d'Anatomie de l'Université de Zürich ainsi qu'à la division d'Anatomie de l'Université de Fribourg. Depuis fin 2004, je travaille pour le groupe de Jan Loffing.
I studied Medicine at Medical University of Sofia, Bulgaria and I worked as assistant professor in Department of medical genetics there. I specialized in 2004/2005 at the University of Montpellier I, France, Laboratory «Identité et plasticité des tumeurs» where I did a part of my PhD thesis on the topic «Genetic characteristics of different types of ovarian tumours». I have been working on different projects, concerning oncogenetics, using the high-throughput technologies of DNA microarrays, tissue microarrays, expression analysis, fluorescent in situ hybridization and comparative genomic hybridization. Since June 2008 I have joined the group of Prof. Djonov in Department of Anatomy, University of Fribourg, where I am working on the molecular aspects of angiogenesis and anti-angiogenic therapy. I am interested in translational medicine and biomarker discovery for early diagnosis, prognosis and molecular-based treatment of cancer and complex diseases.
I studied Medicine in Sofia, Bulgaria and afterwards gathered a few years of clinical experience there. In 1991 I came to Switzerland and began my doctorate in the field of carcinogenesis. 1995 I defended my doctorate thesis (the Tiefenau Laboratory, Department of Clinical Research, University of Bern). From 1995 till 2007 I worked in the Institute of Anatomy, University of Bern (Switzerland) as assistant, lecturer, assistant and associate professor. Since 2007 I work at the Institute of Anatomy as full professor in gross anatomy.
I studied Anthropology/Primatology, Zoology, and Psychology at Kiel (Germany), spent several years in Bochum (Germany) at the Institute for anatomy, and settled 1987 in Fribourg. My scientific interests concern the development of the visual system. My teaching assignments concern the education of pharmaceutics students and macroscopic anatomy for medical students.
I studied Biology in Clermont-Ferrand (F). After a fellowship in Cardiff (GB) working on muscle development, I came to Basel to undertake my PhD studies dealing with muscular disorders and intracellular calcium mechanisms.
After 4j apprenticeship in precision mechanics, I studied electronic engineer at Burgdorf BE. Then I was group leader of the Engineering group at the Institut für Hirnforschung in Zürich. Whith in this time I worked for several month at the National Institut for Medical Research in London. I joined then the first swiss software BS courses at the Softwareschule Schweiz in Bern. Now I work 50% as electronic engineer mainly in software for research. 3D reconstruction, image acquisition and analysis are the main concerns. The other 50% I am for housekeeping, children, wood crafting, mineral search, botanic photographs
I studied Medicine at the University of the Basque Country and get the PhD in Neuroscience in 1997. I have done research stages at the Midland Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery (Birmingham, UK), the Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery (Liverpool, UK) and the Institute of Neuroscience (Pisa, Italy). I have collaborated in the development of the Laboratory of Neuroscience in Sucre (Bolivia). Along my career, my main research topic has been focused on brain vascularization. At this moment, I study the main proangiogenic cytokine, VEGF and its role beyond vascularization, as it is implied in neuroprotection, neurorescue, neural repair and neural development coordinating the development of vascular and nervous tissue. As we have recently described, this molecule can be called angioglioneurin and plays a key role in the neurogliovascular unit in health and disease.
I studied Biotechnology/Bioinformatics at the University Emden/Leer in the north of Germany. After finishing the bachelor in Emden I decided to go on with the master in Biomedical Engineering at Albstadt/Sigmaringen University. To finish my master degree I wrote my master-thesis in the group of Prof. Franziska Theilig about the influence of Insulin and IGF1 on volume retention in proteinuric kidney disease.
After a technical diploma in biochemistry, I studied physiology at the Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse (France). During my PhD in the lab of Drs Schanstra and Bascands (INSERM U1048, Toulouse), I worked on chemokines and inflammation involvement in renal tubulointerstitial
Après ses études à Bologne, il arrive en Suisse pour obtenir son doctorat à la faculté de médecine vétérinaire de l’Université de Berne. Il se rend ensuite en Belgique pour y effectuer un stage auprès de l’institut d’histologie de la faculté de médecine de l’Université de Liège. En 1985 il est nommé professeur titulaire à la faculté des sciences de l’Université de Fribourg où il enseigne l’anatomie microscopique. Dans la recherche, ses intérêts scientifiques se portent vers la croissance et le marquage spécifique des tumeurs (chez l’homme), notamment du côlon, du poumon, de la pleure, du péritoine, de l’ovaire et de la peau.
After finishing my professional career as a swimmer I studied medicine in Berlin (Germany). In 1990 I joined the Anatomy department in Berlin, went for 2 years as a postdoc to Yale University (USA), and came in 1997 to Fribourg (Switzerland). My scientific interests are focused from the beginning on the developmental expression of presynaptic proteins in the central nervous system. The teaching responsabilities included all parts of anatomy (macroscopy, microscopy, embryology).
After school and military service I studied human medicine in Hamburg. Thereafter I gained experience in human pathology. Now I work in basic science focussing on the kidney.
After finishing my high school studies I went to the Medical University at Moscow, Russia. My MD education there was finished with defense of the diploma thesis, research work for which, being a Research Scholar, I performed at Fox Chase Cancer Centre, Philadelphia, USA. Currently, I am following a PhD program projects, designed by my Scientific Advisor, Professor Johannes Loffing at University of Fribourg, Switzerland.
I have been a Ph.D student at the Vascular Biology Laboratory, Unit of Physiology, under Prof. Zhihong Yang. I have started my Ph.D studies from 1st August 2007. I will be finishing my Ph.D defense in November/December 2011. During my Ph.D research, I have worked extensively on Hyperglycaemia, and the final project is on aging and the role of mTOR pathway in endothelial dysfunction in aging. I am currently working under Prof. Franziska Theilig. For me, renal pathophysiology is important and interesting because I have been involved in cardiovascular research before and there is a strong inter-relationship between cardiovascular and renal physiology. My current goal is to study renal proximal tubular endocytosis and its mechanisms.
I graduated from Lviv National Medical University (Lviv, Ukraine) in 2000. After defense of my Master thesis in Surgery and finishing my specialization in vascular surgery I began my doctoral studies in Institute of Anatomy (2002-2005, University of Bern, Switzerland). I have successfully obtained my doctorate degree in 2005 and did my first postdoc there. In September 2007 I moved to work to Fribourg on the position of an assistant. Since April 2008 I work as senior assistant at the Institute of Anatomy (University of Fribourg, Switzerland).
In my PhD study, I was interested in the positional cues that determine the main body axes during development. I focused on dorso-ventral axis formation during embryogenesis and anterior-posterior patterning of adult appendages in Drosophila melanogaster. For my first postdoctoral research, I studied a next developmental level, organogenesis and terminal differentiation of tissues, using Drosophila tracheal system as a model. Currently, I study organ regeneration in zebrafish.
I studied biology (Anthropology) at the University of Zürich. After obtaining my PhD, I worked part-time as research associate at different institutes in the US and in Switzerland. Now, I am supported by a Marie Heim-Vögtlin fellowship from the SNSF and study the role of the intrarenal IGF-I system for regulation of ion transport in the kidney.
I studied human medicine in Münster, Germany. After some clinical training in Urology, I switched to basic science and academic teaching and worked at several institutes in Switzerland and in the US before being appointed as associate professor in Fribourg.
I studied Veterinary Medicine, (BVM) in the University of Nairobi (Kenya) in 1989 and accomplished a Master of Science, (MSc) in 1995. I proceeded to the University of Berne obtaining a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) in 2000 and went to the University of Nairobi, finishing Doctor of Philosophy, (PhD) in 2002.
After I finished my studies (agronomist, biotechnology spec.) in the University of Debrecen (Hungary), I spent some years with basic research in different laboratories in Hungary. I finished my PhD studies in the Department of Anatomy, Histology and Embryology in Debrecen and joined to the Anatomy Unit in Fribourg in 2008. My research interest is knowing more about the roles of the extracellular macromolecules and calcium-binding proteins in development and function of the central nervous system.
Laborantine en biologie. J’ai travaillé cinq ans à Berne dans un laboratoire de recherche avant de revenir à l’institut où j’ai fait mon apprentissage. Pendant mon temps libre, je profite pleinement de ma famille.
I studied Medicine at the University Miguel Hernandez in Alicante (Spain). During my studies, I did an internship at the Division of Human Anatomy and Embryology of the same university, collaborating in Neuroanatomy research, especially in Immunohistochemistry with the proto-oncogen c-fos and its interesting role as a morphofunctional marker of neuronal activity. After finishing my degree, I joined that division as assistant doctor/lecturer, where I got the experience of giving lectures of Macroscopic Anatomy to students of the Medicine Faculty and started my PhD Program. In April, 2006 I came to Fribourg for performing the research for my PhD Thesis. My scientific interests concern the morphofunctional features of Central Nervous System, especially focused in vision in mammals.
I studied Medicine at the University of Pavia, Italy and I worked as assistant in the Department of Legal Medicine there, where I specialized in 2006. I worked in the field of forensic pathology and clinic, with special interests to drowning and child abuse. In 2007 I began working, as assistant, in the University Centre of Legal Medicine of Lausanne, where I worked on the applications of bioimpedance to forensic medicine and on the biochemical postmortem markers of heart failure. Since October 2008 I have joined the group of Prof. Valentin Djonov in the Department of Anatomy, University of Fribourg. The main research interest is the postmortem diagnosis of early myocardial ischemia.
I studied Medicine and I undertook my medical specialization in Anatomo-Pathology with special emphasis in Neuropathology in Spain. After some years of clinical practice, I switched to research into the field of neuromuscular disorders. My scientific interests are clinically oriented. I am particularly focused in biological mechanisms underlying disease progression in inherited peripheral neuropathies that I study using mouse mutants. A second area of interest is the phenotypical characterization of genetically modified (GEM) mice with a view to identify potential animal models of human diseases.
Après avoir fini mes études de médecine vétérinaire à l'université de Berne, j'ai rejoint en 2005 l'institut d'histologie de Fribourg. En collaboration avec l'université de Zurich, j'y ai accompli un "Master of Science in Medical Biology". Durant mon temps libre, j'aime faire du sport (équitation, sport canin, ski de randonnée…) et m’occuper de ma «ménagerie».
Der Computer hat mich schon sehr früh gefesselt, weil damit komplizierte und zeitraubende Prozesse vereinfacht und beschleunigt gelöst werden können. Zuerst durch Selbststudium und anschliessend durch einen zweiten Lehrgang mit einem Abschluss als eidg. dipl. Analytikerin/Programmiererin, habe ich mir das Rüstzeug geholt, um den Computer für Management von grossen Datenbanken und statistische Auswertungen in der Medizin sowie für Darstellung und Visualisierung von Entwicklungsvorgängen im Embryologie im virtuellen
I studied medicine in Louvain (Belgium) and specialised in internal medicine at the Lovanium University of Kinshasa (DR Congo, where we were the first Europeans to get married after independence of the country!). I also practiced tropical medicine there. Back to Europe with a growing family, we finally arrived in Fribourg where we anchored since quite a while. I did some research work on lung ultrastructure, innervation of ovary, and bradykinin liberation and mapping in brain. Meanwhile, I spent much time with the Swiss Red Cross. I am actually engaging in a project to promote the access of automated logics in anatomy. And my grandchildren complain that I do not devote to them more of my time.
I studied Master’s in Molecular biology in University of Skövde, Sweden. During Master thesis at UK-SH, Lübeck, I worked on research topic ´Role of tumor suppressing proteins and proto-oncogenes in brain tumor’. I joined to Anatomy unit of University of Fribourg in July 2007 as a Doctorate student in the group of Beat Schwaller.
After the study of biology at the University of Tübingen with specialization on animal physiology I worked some years at the Institute of Human physiology. 1994 I changed to the Institute of Anatomy (Tübingen) and 2002 to the Institute of Anatomy at the University of Fribourg. The teaching assignments included all parts of physiology, macroscopy and histology. My scientific interests concern the ultra structure of motor end plates and their morphological modifications in muscle diseases.
Meine Ausbildung zum Biomedizinischen Analytiker schloss ich in Bern ab und erwarb anschliessend die Zusatzausbildung in Strahlenschutz und Röntgentechnik am Paul Scherrer Institutes. Im Jahre 1989 kam ich mit der Forschung an der Universität Fribourg in Berührung: Histologie, C-Labor und Molekularbiologie sind heute für mich zur Routine geworden. Auf entsprechende Fragestellungen von den Professoren, stelle ich gemeinsam mit den Präparatoren Foto-, Videoaufnahmen und 3D-Animationen her, welche später für das Selbststudium der Studenten benötigt werden. Weitere Tätigkeiten betreffen die Einkaufskoordination und Administration.
I studied medicine in Ukrainian State Medical University, Kiev, Ukraine. After finishing my studies I worked as a physician-ophthalmologist in Kiev for several years. Later, I became interested in basic science and entered graduate school in the Department of Ophthalmology, Kochi University Faculty of Medicine, Japan. My studies were focused on G-protein coupled receptors, and, in particular, on platelet activating factor receptor (PAF-R). We studied PAF-R expression on cells, which play an important role in allergic conjunctivitis, such as eosinophils and macrophages. We looked at the possibility to control and prevent the development of inflammatory reaction in the conjunctiva by blocking these receptors by specific antagonists. I completed my Ph.D. studies in February 2007 and joined the Unit of Anatomy at the University of Fribourg in March 2007.
