Researching Future Treatments
The LOOP Zurich is a medical center for translational research and precision medicine. It focuses on new approaches, better diagnostics, and novel therapies that will benefit patients and society as a whole. The goal is to enhance personalized healthcare by efficiently transferring scientific knowledge into medical practice.
The six founding institutions of The LOOP Zurich are the University of Zurich (UZH), ETH Zurich (ETHZ), and the University Hospitals: University Hospital Zurich (USZ), the University Children’s Hospital Zurich (KiSpi), the University Hospital Balgrist, and the University Hospital of Psychiatry Zurich (PUK). These Zurich institutions are combining their strengths in a joint research initiative at The LOOP Zurich.
The basis of The LOOP Zurich’s research projects will be to leverage the scientific expertise of the researchers involved by giving them access to state-of-the-art research infrastructures in biomedicine and quantitative biomedicine, biobanks and extensive databases as well as the latest high-throughput omics technologies.
