The SV postdoc association and the BioScience Network Lausanne are gladly continuing our collaboration with the Novartis Institute for Biomedical Research (NIBR) in Basel: the Novartis-EPFL-UNIL (NEU) Meeting. The 4th NEU meeting will take place on the 5th of December 2016 (Monday) in Basel.

The aim of this meeting is to promote interactions among researchers conducting similar types of research in academia and in industry. PhD students and postdocs will have the opportunity to present their work and learn about research at NIBR. Besides, participants will attend exclusive lab visits at NIBR. Please note that this meeting is not meant to be a job fair.

The tentative layout of the day is as follows:

  • arrival in Basel at 9 AM (costs of transportation are on the participants)
  • 2 presentations by NIBR scientists
  • poster presentations by EPFL/UNIL scientists
  •  lunch break
  • NIBR lab visits
  • departure to Lausanne around 6 PM

We are looking for PhD students and postdocs from EPFL and UNIL performing research in life science. You will have the opportunity to present a poster and we kindly ask you to submit an abstract (300 words max, no figures) following registration.
