This conference brings together scientists from all the different 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.
- Abstract submission: 14 November 2022
- General registration: 14 January 2023
The general topic of the Annual Meeting is “Life on Earth: Coping with Challenges”. Three keynote lectures are confirmed: Prof. Richard Simerly from the Vanderbilt University, Prof. Sharona Gordon from the University of Washington and Prof. Lea Sistonen from the Åbo Akademi University, Turku Centre for Biotechnology. 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.
