NCCR Chemical Biology retreat 2019

Our annual retreat will take place from June 12th to June 14th 2019 at the Eurotel Victoria in Villars-sur-Ollon (Vaud).



There will be one scientific session per interdisciplinary project (5 in total), two poster sessions and an outreach workshop session (questionnaire for the session). We have invited external speakers: Prof Ronald T. Raines (MIT), Prof. Giovanni D’Angelo (EPFL), Prof. Stefano Vanni (University of Fribourg) & Philippe Plattet (Vetswiss faculty, University of Bern).

A scientific committee composed of NCCR members will select the two 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.

An audience choice award will nominate – after voting – the best NCCR speaker of the retreat!

The retreat will start on Wednesday June 12th at 13:30 (arrival and sign-in) until Friday June 14th at  approximately 12:15.
