Shaping the future of pediatric medicine

The University Children’s Hospital is an independent institution with a 150-year history of successful pediatric research and an official teaching and research mandate from the University of Zurich. As the largest academic pediatric hospital in Switzerland, we are working tirelessly to translate today’s pediatric research into tomorrow’s standard of care.

Clinical Chemistry & Biochemistry


The Division of Clinical Chemistry and Biochemistry carries out emergency, routine, and specialized analyses of blood, urine, aspirate, and sweat. These analyses represent an important part of laboratory medicine and help in the prevention and diagnosis of diseases as well as in therapy monitoring. In addition to laboratory diagnostics, we carry out basic research in the pediatric field. Our research focuses on the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic inflammatory and congenital metabolic diseases with a focus on the molecular mechanisms of these diseases.
