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!

Welcome to the LS2 Annual Meeting 2017!

Dear colleagues and friends

It is our pleasure to invite you to the LS² Annual Meeting 2017, held on the 2nd and 3rd of February, 2017 at the Irchel Campus of the University of Zurich. The LS² Annual Meeting brings together scientists from all nations and backgrounds to explore the large spectrum united under the umbrella of Life Sciences.

Alongside our scientific programme with internationally renowned speakers (see below), we also offer a variety of career development/soft skill sessions, as well as numerous workshopsand discussion rounds, a large industry exhibition and 100+ posters presented by promising young scientists.

Discover the latest, most exciting findings in the field, from Molecular and Cellular Biosciences to Proteomics and Physiology, or enjoy the Satellite Workshop on opportunities and challenges in non-academic careers. Scientists who are at the stage to start their own research group and who are interested in doing so in a Swiss research institution are welcome to enter the contest "Tomorrow's PI", where the best future projects from diverse disciplines are being showcased.

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 the first 40 to register free travel to and registration at the meeting!

PhD students can meet their peers at the Poster and Apéro session and win one of the prestigious poster prizes (worth 500 CHF). In addition to the poster sessions, flash talks will be embedded in the scientific symposia.

As every year, the winner of the Friedrich-Miescher Award and the Lelio Orci Award will be honored in a special ceremony.

We are looking forward to welcome you at the LS2 Annual Meeting 2017 in Zurich!
