ETH scientists are part of a consortium called Zurich Exhalomics – a large team working on the future of diagnostics, where illnesses can be diagnosed using no more than a breath sample.

In this ETH Podcast, Renato Zenobi and Bettina Streckenbach, both of whom are involved in this project, talk to host Jennifer Khakshouri about breath analysis and what it takes to revolutionise medical diagnostics.
