The LS2 Annual Meeting 2023 & Young Scientists’ Satellite - will be held at the Irchel Campus of the University of Zurich on the 15 -17th February 2023!
Our Annual Meeting brings together scientists from all the different life science sections that form LS2 and it will again broadcast the vast variety of the high quality research done in Switzerland. The Annual Meeting will again give us the chance to interact with scientists from many different countries and of different scientific background both of which are key to the success of LS2.
The general topic of the Annual Meeting is “Life on Earth: Coping with Challenges”. Keynotes :
They will give insight in their exciting research on the impact of nutrition and hormones in the development of neural circuits that control behaviour and metabolism, ion channel regulation in response to inflammatory mediators and the action of heat shock transcription factors in cell stress, reproduction and cancer. In addition, the Young Scientists’ Satellite will be opened by Prof. Giles Yeo from the University of Cambridge who is an expert in the study of genetic causes of metabolic disease, but who is also a thrilling example how complex research findings can be communicated to the public.
The keynote lectures will be embedded into an exciting program with scientific symposia organized by the different LS2 sections and partners, including more than 18 invited speakers and approx. 35 speakers who will be selected based on their abstract submissions. As every year, we will of course be very much looking forward to the laureate talks of the winners of the Prix Schläfli, Friedrich Miescher Award and the Lelio Orci Award. We will also enjoy two poster sessions and a larger exhibition area.
