Visiting and Discovering Swiss TPH

Would you like to get an insight into the activities of Swiss TPH? We offer interested school classes (mainly level Sek II), service-clubs and other groups a visit to our institute. In order to address the needs of our various target groups, we developed a broad range of modularly combinable presentations and activities.

Individually Arranged Programmes

Every time we arrange a programme based on the interests and background of each visitor group. A two-hour event is ideal but due to our modular designed offer we can shorten or extend a visitor event. Each visit starts with a short introduction to the mandate, vision and organisation of Swiss TPH. Afterwards, visitors are usually grouped and attend, in turn, in 3-4 different stations. Each station enables to explore examples of research or service fields of Swiss TPH.

Public Events

Regularly, Swiss TPH participates in public events organised by the University of Basel. Depending on the event, we present our research activities, our field work in tropical countries, our services in Basel and all over the world, and our offers in education and training, respectively.

Large audience; Freie Akademische Gesellschaft 2015

The "Freie Akademische Gesellschaft Basel" supports education and research at the University of Basel. In autumn 2015, over 60 interested members visited Swiss TPH. After an introducing presentation, the visitors could participate in different stations and learn about the plant Artemisia and its role in malaria control, about the necessity to combine human and animal health, about the broad range of education possibilities at Swiss TPH, or about potential health risks of radiation.

After an exiting morning, National Future Day 2016

On the national future day 2016, we welcomed again around 20 children of employees of Swiss TPH and other institutes of the university of Basel. Aged between 10 and 12 years, the children could participate in an exciting and versatile programme. They investigated and stopped an epidemic disease in Basel, got an insight into the world of parasites or measured different radiations.

Fest der Moleküle 2016: Chirality and drug development

The communication unit is responsible for public events within the framework of the University of Basel. At the "Fest der Moleküle" in August 2016, Swiss TPH presented the phenomenom of chirality and resulting difficulties in drug development on the example of a new drug against the worm disease schistosomiasis. Around 1500 pupils and over 2500 interested individuals visited this event.
