NCCR Chemical Biology retreat 2018

Our annual retreat will take place from June 13th to June 15th 2018 at the Eurotel Victoria in Villars-sur-Ollon (VD).


There will be one scientific session per interdisciplinary project chaired by the associated project leader (6 in total), two poster sessions and a strategy session on NCCR Phase III. We have invited external speakers (Prof. Charlotte Aumeier from UNIGE, as well as Ioannis Xenarios & Markus Mueller from Vital-IT Group) and Manuel Merz, winner of the Best Master’s thesis Award 2018.

On Thursday, there will be a seminar on “Driving philanthropy to advance your work” given by Fiona Firk from Marts & Lundy (UK).

A scientific committee composed of NCCR members will select the three best posters for the Best Poster Awards. As a prize, the NCCR Chemical Biology will offer the registration and accommodation fees to attend any scientific meeting of their choice! Announcement of the winners will be done during the Concluding Remarks Session on Friday.

The retreat will start on Wednesday June 13th at 14:00 (arrival and sign-in) until Friday June 15th at  approximately 15:00.
