Time and again, the media report on the successes of biomedical research at the University of Zurich. Many of these successes are based on animal experiments, which is why it is important to UZH to communicate transparently about the topic of animal experiments and to engage in discourse with the public. Thus, UZH is one of the founding members and currently the lead institution of STAAR (Swiss Transparency Agreement on Animal Research).
The University of Zurich achieved excellent results in the Swiss government’s 2023 Swiss Roadmap for Research Infrastructures, acting as the sponsoring institution for 5 out of 14 large-scale priority projects. The results confirm UZH’s standing as a driver of innovation.
Researchers from veterinary medicine, human medicine and the natural sciences have joined forces to establish Europe’s first university-based One Health Institute at UZH. Together, they want to explore the links between human, animal and environmental health.
