We are the largest Life Sciences Society and Network in Switzerland!
Originally founded as USGEB (Union of Swiss Societies for Experimental Biology) in 1969, the society has a history of 50 years in federating researchers from various Life Sciences disciplines and promoting their interests towards the public. In 2012, USGEB changed its name to LS2 (Life Sciences Switzerland). In 2016 three of the founding societies merged, and more sections joined later, making LS2 the largest Life Sciences Society in Switzerland. LS2 represents about 950 members.
