One of the distinctive hallmarks of the NCCR Chemical Biology is providing its researchers with state-of-the-art technologies to enhance world-class research but also with knowledgeable, experienced staff with expertise in designing and conducting experiments and analyzing data.

Our research ethos of interdisciplinary collaboration at the cutting-edge of research is reflected by the presence of highly specialised technology, efficient management of equipment, training and support for research staff and resources.

The links below point to information about the NCCR Chemical Biology network’s instruments and facilities, notably the Academic Screening Platform of Switzerland (ACCESS), based in EPFL and Geneva, which allows scientists throughout Switzerland to perform academic screenings among a library of ~130’000 siRNAs and ~100’000 small molecules. This section is regularly updated and our technology core and services are available not only to NCCR scientists, researchers at other institutions but also aim to create a fertile ground for collaboration with industry via platforms like the LTA platform or the Geneva Creativity Center.
