Biozentrum World Alumni Day, June 23, 2023


Dear Biozentrum Alumni,

Do you ever wonder what your former Biozentrum colleagues and friends are up to? What is happening at the Biozentrum now? What does the new building look like? 

If you are curious to know, join us on Friday, June 23, in Basel!

We are delighted to invite you to our first
Biozentrum World Alumni Day! 

Listen to lectures given by Biozentrum alumni at the morning symposium, tour our new home and meet your former colleagues in the afternoon. In the evening, we will all get together again for dinner and party to toast the Biozentrum. 


Please register here by April 30, 2023

The Biozentrum will cover the costs for the event on June 23, but please organize and cover the costs for travel and accommodation yourself.

We are looking forward to meeting and to re-connecting with you!
