The Center for Clinical Studies (Zentrum für Klinische Studien, ZKS) is a core facility supported by the Vetsuisse Faculty. The center is dedicated to support laboratory-based clinical research of clinicians and pathologists of the Vetsuisse Faculty.

The mission of the Center for Clinical Studies is to provide the users with the expertise to support their laboratory-based clinical research and to allocate complex equipment, which cannot be purchased, maintained and operated by a single research group.

The users have the opportunity to receive support for the design and conception of their experiments. The implementation and financing of the projects is the responsibility of the users and their supervisors.

Obligation to Wear Masks -We perform SARS-CoV-2 diagnostics in ZKS

Since April 15th 2022 there is no more the obligation to wear masks in UZH areas.

The ZKS management decided to still keep the obligation to wear a mask in the ZKS. The reason for this decision is that currently SARS-CoV-2 diagnostics is performed in the center, therefore the aim of this measure is to avoid possible contaminations of the samples.
