SNE Chemical Biology retreat – June 3-4, 2024

Overview

 

We are delighted to announce the 2-day annual retreat of the SNE association in Chemical Biology, scheduled for June 3-4, 2024.

Our primary objective is to foster connections within the Swiss Chemical Biology community, uniting researchers from the two main university hubs in the Lemanic and Zurich/Basel regions.

The program features distinguished external speakers, esteemed members of the association,  a presentation by master’s student alum Andrei Zhauniarovich, recipient of the best master’s thesis prize, and a poster session allowing young scientists to showcase their research.

We anticipate that the stunning surroundings will further enrich this auspicious 2-day event at the Hotel Suisse in Champèry, Valais.
