We are very proud to announce a new Member to the Expert Advisory Board: Simone Schürle is  Assistant Professor for Responsive Biomedical Systems at ETH Zurich and is researching in the field of biomedical micro-and nanoengineering.

Simone brings a wide expertise in the field of science and technology, beyond the Nanoengineering background:

Simone Schürle is Assistant Professor for Responsive Biomedical Systems at ETH Zurich and is researching in the field of biomedical micro-and nanoengineering.

During her studies at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology with specialization in micro/nanosystems, she researched at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, about automated drug infusion and control, and at the University of Kyoto, Japan, in the field of carbon nanotube based nanosensors.

She then joined the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) where she focused on magnetic manipulation techniques for biomedical applications. She was awarded with the ETH medal for her doctoral thesis and with fellowships from the SNSF, DAAD and the Society in Science for her postdoctoral studies at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she was researching as postdoctoral fellow from 2014-2017.

She is serving as Global Future Council on the Future of Human Enhancement for the World Economic Forum. She is also co-founder of MagnebotiX, a young spin-off from ETHZ.
