Life Sciences Switzerland (LS2) and the Louis-Jeantet Foundation co-organize a free Satellite Meeting on “Proteomics & Structural Biology”for 30 students and Postdocs at the Louis-Jeantet Foundation in Geneva on October 10, 2018.

It takes place on the day after the Louis-Jeantet Symposium 2018 on the same topic.

Two outstanding plenary speakers, the Nobel Chemistry laureate Kurt Wüthrich (The Scripps Research Institute La Jolla (US) and ETH Zurich) and Michal Bassani(CHUV Lausanne)will be joining the satellite meeting, give a talk themselves, and comment on the participants’ talks. The chair of the meeting will be Ioannis Xenarios(UNIL/UNIGE).

Registered participants of this satellite meeting that also attend the preceding Louis-Jeantet Symposium (October 9), will join the speakers for the following Apéro and casual dinnerThis is an excellent opportunity for the students to approach the speakers, get inspired, build their network, and exchange ideas!

Interested students & Postdocs are invited to register with an abstract and thereby apply for an oral presentation at this meeting at:

The registration deadline is September 17, 2018.
Please find attached the flyer to the Satellite Meeting.
I would be happy if you could spread this info in among interested students & Postdocs. Don’t hesitate to get back to me if you have any questions.
With best wishes
