What can you do with a PhD? The career options are limitless as the research topics! 

Come explore keynotes, workshops, and interactive poster sessions to learn about who are your fellow life scientists and what they are doing. Maybe you will find your next collaborator or maybe you will find your career calling.

We encourage Masters, Ph.D. students, and PostDocs from all Swiss universities and beyond to join us! This is an exciting event to see what your potential could be and to find out what your colleagues are doing to initiate collaborations that can push your research further!
