Dutoit, Axelle ; Laforêt, Aurélie (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2019 ; TDIBM 57.

The situation in Madagascar is critical, with an annual GDP of 448 USD per citizen in 2017, the country suffers from political uncertainty, corruption, illness, a poor education system and many other factors that make it one of the poorest country in the world. The country represents a challenging environment to operate in. However, with a good support from local politicians, a deep analysis of...

The industry of microbreweries in the canton of Geneva : what are the current challenges faced by microbreweries in the market of Geneva and who are their customers ?

Cochard, David ; Milet, Emmanuel (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2019 ; TDIBM 54.

Switzerland is the country with the highest number of breweries per capita in the world (Genillard, 2018). In 2019, the number of microbreweries is around 1000. However, it has not always been the case that Switzerland was the leading country in terms of number of microbreweries. Indeed, in 1990, there were only 32 microbreweries in Switzerland. This phenomenon is something recent and even if the...

Swiss Immigration Federalism

Manatschal, Anita

In: Immigration Regulation in Federal States: Challenges and Responses in Comparative Perspective, 2014, p. 179-198

In Switzerland, sub-national regulation in the field of immigration has developed mainly in relation to immigrant integration, whereas the areas of immigrant selection and immigration enforcement remain predominantly regulated by the central government. The current regulatory situation can be read as the result of three interacting factors: Switzerland’s pronounced federal system, the...

Zimmermann, Petra ; Perrett, Kirsten P. ; Ritz,  Nicole ; Flanagan, Katie L. ; Robins-Browne, Roy ; Klis, Fiona R. M. van der ; Curtis, Nigel ; the MIS BAIR group

In: Acta Paediatrica, 2019, p. -

Aim We investigated the effect of early-life factors, namely sex, delivery mode, feeding method and antibiotic exposure, on antibody responses to routine vaccinations administered during the first year of life. Methods One and seven months after the primary course of routine vaccines and 1 month after routine vaccines at 12 months of age, antibodies against 26 vaccine antigens were measured...

A sociocultural psychology of repeated mobility: dialogical challenges = Una psicología sociocultural de la movilidad repetida: desafíos dialógicos

Zittoun, Tania ; Levitan, Déborah

In: Studies in Psychology / Estudios de Psicología, 2019, vol. 40, no. 1, p. 79-106

In this paper, we propose a sociocultural psychology of the lifecourse to examine the extreme case of families living in repeated international mobility. In this case, mobility is motivated by work, which leads to repeated relocation of housing and occupational arrangements across countries. Based on fieldwork, we highlight three challenges of repeated mobility and discuss their implications...

The Tim-3-Galectin-9 Pathway and Its Regulatory Mechanisms in Human Breast Cancer

Yasinska, Inna M. ; Sakhnevych, Svetlana S. ; Pavlova, Ludmila ; Hansen Selnø, Anette Teo ; Teuscher Abeleira, Ana Maria ; Benlaouer, Ouafa ; Gonçalves Silva, Isabel ; Mosimann, Marianne ; Varani, Luca ; Bardelli, Marco ; Hussain, Rohanah ; Siligardi, Giuliano ; Cholewa, Dietmar ; Berger, Steffen M. ; Gibbs, Bernhard F. ; Ushkaryov, Yuri A. ; Fasler-Kan, Elizaveta ; Klenova, Elena ; Sumbayev, Vadim V.

In: Frontiers in immunology, 2019, vol. 10, p. 1594

Human cancer cells operate a variety of effective molecular and signaling mechanisms which allow them to escape host immune surveillance and thus progress the disease. We have recently reported that the immune receptor Tim-3 and its natural ligand galectin-9 are involved in the immune escape of human acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells. These cells use the neuronal receptor latrophilin 1...

DNA‐mediated self‐assembly of plasmonic antennas with a single quantum dot in the hot spot

Nicoli, Francesca ; Zhang, Tao ; Hübner, Kristina ; Jin, Boyuan ; Selbach, Florian ; Acuna, Guillermo P. ; Argyropoulos, Christos ; Liedl, Tim ; Pilo-Pais, and Mauricio

In: Small, 2019, vol. 15, no. 26, p. 1804418

DNA self‐assembly is a powerful tool to arrange optically active components with high accuracy in a large parallel manner. A facile approach to assemble plasmonic antennas consisting of two metallic nanoparticles (40 nm) with a single colloidal quantum dot positioned at the hot spot is presented here. The design approach is based on DNA complementarity, stoichiometry, and steric hindrance...

Swiss paediatrician survey on complementary medicine

Huber, Benedikt M. ; von Schoen-Angerer, Tido ; Hasselmann, Oswald ; Wildhaber, Johannes ; Wolf, Ursula

In: Swiss Medical Weekly, 2019, p. -

In Switzerland, complementary medicine (CM) is officially recognised within the healthcare system and mainly practised in an integrative manner, in conjunction with conventional medicine. As in other countries, there is high demand for and use of CM with children. However, there has so far been no research into the attitude towards, training in and offer of CM among paediatricians in...

Satzverständnisleistungen von Kindern mit und ohne SSES im TROG-D und einer schweizerdeutschen Adaptation

Till, Christoph ; Hartmann, Erich ; Winkes , Julia ; Rindlisbacher, Barbara

In: Forschung Sprache, 2017, no. 1, p. 4-20

Background: Certain challenges are associated with identifying children with speech comprehension disorders, as those children typically acquire compensatory strategies of communication, often resul- ting in late identification. In addition, speech therapists in the German-speaking part of Switzerland must employ assessment instruments that are designed for standard German and not for Swiss Ger-...

Highly significant antiviral activity of HIV-1 LTR-specific tre-recombinase in humanized mice

Hauber, Ilona ; Hofmann-Sieber, Helga ; Chemnitz, Jan ; Dubrau, Danilo ; Chusainow, Janet ; Stucka, Rolf ; Hartjen, Philip ; Schambach, Axel ; Ziegler, Patrick ; Hackmann, Karl ; Schröck, Evelin ; Schumacher, Udo ; Lindner, Christoph ; Grundhoff, Adam ; Baum, Christopher ; Manz, Markus G. ; Buchholz, Frank ; Hauber, Joachim

In: Plos pathogens, 2013, vol. 9, no. 9, p. e1003587

Stable integration of HIV proviral DNA into host cell chromosomes, a hallmark and essential feature of the retroviral life cycle, establishes the infection permanently. Current antiretroviral combination drug therapy cannot cure HIV infection. However, expressing an engineered HIV-1 long terminal repeat (LTR) site-specific recombinase (Tre), shown to excise integrated proviral DNA in vitro,...
