Biozentrum Symposium 2017

Biozentrum Symposium 2017

At the Biozentrum 30 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 100 posters are displayed. A prize is awarded for the best talk and the two best posters. Approximately 350 participants attend each year. The Biozentrum Symposium 2017 takes place at the Theater Basel on January 18.

Members of the Biozentrum Advisory Board, the panel of twelve internationally recognized scientific experts, participate in the symposium and on the following two days evaluate the scientific quality of the work carried out at the Biozentrum.
