Research magazine Horizons: the longing for all-encompassing answers


Dieses Bild zeigt das Cover der aktuellen Horizonte-Ausgabe.

To answer big questions, research also relies on big hypotheses. What role does faith play in this context? A journey of discovery through the disciplines and their uncertainties.

Regardless of methods and facts, research is also faced with questions of faith. From the all-encompassing 'theory of everything' in physics to categories of race and gender in brain research and God in theology - an in-depth look at various disciplines shows that many things remain uncertain until the end.

In another key article, we address the insecurities of research funding in poorer countries such as Vietnam and Bulgaria. And we show how the SNSF can act as a role model in this context.

Other highlights include: a researcher who is trusted by torturers, another who travels through the bitter cold and never-ending darkness, and RNA - the new superstar of medicine.

The current issue of Horizons is - as always - as diverse as research itself. And accessible to everyone!
