PhD Retreat

9th Biozentrum PhD Retreat, 2017

The 9th PhD Retreat will take place in Martigny from June 8th to 10th, 2017.

The PhD Retreat is an exceptional opportunity to meet your colleagues in a friendly environment, discuss science and have a lot of fun. Therefore, we would like to invite you to join this event, which became an integral part of the PhD framework program at the Biozentrum. Every student is encouraged to participate at least twice during the PhD. New students should also participate, presenting an outlook of their project or their Master thesis. For the successful participation, you will receive one credit point and maybe even a prize for the best posters and talks!

Thanks to our sponsors, including the Biozentrum and many others, participation is free of charge. All costs concerning the Retreat (hotel, meals, coffee breaks, etc.) are covered, except for travel expenses which should be arranged by the student.

This year, we are pleased to have the following Keynote Speakers at the Retreat:

  • Dr. Randall Platt (ETH Z├╝rich, Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering, Basel)
  • Dr. Pascal Haenggi (Chief Scientific Officer at Polyneuron Pharmaceuticals, Basel)
  • Dr. Matthias Wittwer (Scientist at the Bacteriology branch of the Spiez Laboratory)

All PhD students of the Biozentrum and the Pharmazentrum are welcome!


Looking forward to meet you in Martigny,

The 2017 PhD Retreat organizing committee
