At the Biozentrum 32 research groups, made up of scientists from 45 nations, conduct a diverse range of research to address questions in molecular biology.
To promote scientific exchange and the interdisciplinary teamwork between these research groups, the Biozentrum organizes a symposium for its employees and students annually. This provides an insight into other areas of research, as well as an overview of the many projects being carried out. Furthermore, the symposium offers young scientists in particular a platform to present their research findings and to gain experience in doing so, be it in the form of lectures or in three "poster sessions", where about 65 posters are displayed. Prizes are awarded for the best talk and the three best posters. Approximately 380 participants attend each year. The Biozentrum Symposium 2020 takes place at the Theater Basel on January 15.
Numerous sponsors make this annual event possible. For further information concerning sponsoring activities, please contact Marcel Scheiwiller, Head of Administration.
