LS2 Annual Meeting 2016
VenueAmphimax, University of Lausanne
The LS2 Annual Meeting will bring together Swiss Life Scientists from academic backgrounds as well as our industry partners with researchers from all across Europe to explore the large spectrum of "Interdisciplinary Sciences".
Dear colleagues and friends
It is our pleasure to invite you to the LS² Annual Meetign 2016, held on the 15./16.2. at the Amphipôle/Amphimax complex of the University of Lausanne. Alongside our scientific programme with internationally renowned speakers, we also offer a variety of career development/soft skill sessions, as well as numerous workshops and discussion rounds, a large industry exhibition and 100+ posters presented by promising young academics.
At this meeting, LS² will bring together Swiss Life Scientists from academic backgrounds as well as our industry partners with researchers from all across Europe to explore the large spectrum of "Interdisciplinary Sciences". Listen in on the exhiting findings in the field of Chemical Biology over Synthetic Biology to Proteomics and "Classic" Molecular and Cell Biology (and many more) , discuss opportunities and challenges of the Swiss Research funding system and the life beyond academia in non-academic professions, and be a part of the emotional debate on careers of men and women in the Life Sciences.
For the youngest scientists (BSc/MSc students), we do not only offer an informative session on opportunities in and outside the academic world, but also offer your travel to the meeting and the registration fee, if you are among the first 40 to register!
PhD students can meet their peers at the poster and apéro session and win one of the prestigious poster prizes (worth 500 CHF). As every year, the winner of the Friedrich-Miescher Award will be awarded at a special ceremony, and for the first time, LS² will present the "Lelio Orci Award", sponsored by the University of Geneva.
The SCNAT Forum Genforschung is organising a young scientists' debate to which all participants of the conference are welcome. Members of the iGEM team will discuss with other young researchers the chances and risks of Synthetic Biology. The session will take place on 16 February in the afternoon, following short films on Synthetic Biology in the same auditory.
Don't miss this opportunity to meet with your colleagues and friends from the Swiss Life Science community, we are looking forward to welcome you at the LS2 Annual Meeting 2016 in Lausanne.
