Viola Vogel's Biography



Viola Vogel, Professor, ETH Zurich

Professor Viola Vogel is a Professor in the Department of Health Science and Technology at the ETH Z├╝rich, where she heads the Laboratory of Applied Mechanobiology. She received her doctorate from Frankfurt University after completing her graduate research at the Max-Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, and was then a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley. Professor Vogel started her academic career in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington, Seattle (1991-2004), and was there the Founding Director of the Center for Nanotechnology (1997-2003) before she moved to the ETH in 2004. Major awards include the Otto-Hahn Medal from the Max-Planck Society (1988), Feodor-Lynen Fellowship Humboldt Foundation (1989-1990), "FIRST" Award from the National Institutes of Health (General Medicine) (1993), Research Award from the Philip Morris Foundation (2005), Julius Springer Award for Applied Physics (2006), the ERC Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (2008), the International Solvay Chair in Chemistry Brussels (2012), and an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Tampere Finland (2012).

Cells sense and remodel their environment by applying by pulling on their substrates.  As they apply tensile forces, all proteins that are part of force-bearing junctions get mechanically stretched.  We are particularly interested in deciphering how proteins can act as mechano-chemical signaling switches and thereby enable mechanotransduction processes.
