The LS2 Annual Meeting 2023 will again be held at the Irchel Campus of the University of Zurich on 16 & 17 February 2023, preceded by the Young Scientists' Satellite on 15 February.
This conference 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 give you 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 program includes three keynote lectures: Prof. Richard Simerly (Vanderbilt University), Prof. Sharona Gordon (University of Washington) and Prof. Lea Sistonen (Åbo Akademi University, Turku Centre for Biotechnology).
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 (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 11 scientific symposia, including more than 18 invited speakers and approx. 35 speakers who will be selected based on their abstract submissions. As every year, the laureate talks of the winners of the Prix Schläfli, Friedrich Miescher Award and the Lelio Orci Award, together with an extensive industry exhibition and two poster sessions will be an important part of this exciting program.
