Appointments at ETH Zurich
Dr Collin Y. Ewald (*1980), currently a post-doctoral student at ETH Zurich, as Assistant Professor of Extracellular Matrix Regeneration. Collin Ewald is an internationally acclaimed researcher in the field of the molecular biology of ageing. Among other things, he has successfully shown that almost all life-extending interventions protect and repair not only the interior of the cell, but also, in an unexpected way, its exterior (the extracellular matrix). His appointment will significantly strengthen fundamental research at ETH Zurich into the important topic of our ageing society / ageing healthily. As an SNSF-funded professor, Collin Ewald's aim will be to find out what impact improving the regeneration of the extracellular matrix has on extending a healthy lifespan.
