Open laboratory for politicians

On February 6 and May 15, the Departments of Physics and Chemistry and the SNI invited Basel’s politicians to Klingelbergstrasse 82 for an insight into their research. Department heads Professor Dominik Zumbühl, Professor Marcel Mayor, and SNI Director Professor Christian Schönenberger began with brief reports on the various research facilities before the fascinated visitors embarked on three laboratory tours to learn about some aspects of research in more detail. The subsequent reception gave all involved the opportunity to ask further questions and talk with the scientists from chemistry, physics, and the SNI.
