Three research programmes at Unifr have been the topic of articles in the Horizonte magazine of the Swiss National Science Foundation:
Adria Le Bœuf from the Department of Biology, and her project on the exchange of saliva in ants as a vector of communication to regulate the management of the entire colony.
Sven Bacher, also in the Department of Biology, a leading expert on invasive plant species.

And finally Mayron Piccolo and Chantal Martin-Soelch, from the Department of Psychology, for their study on the role in anorexia of a cannibinoid produced by our body.
