Newbies at the 1st BSNL retreat!

Fresh blood and open minds just joined BSNL! They showed their commitment by following us in the Berner Oberland, joining the 1st BSNL retreat ever, and shined for their ideas during the brainstorming session. Please welcome our new members, Erica and Petar!

Erica Reggi

Originally coming from Ticino, Erica studied at UNIL and is now a PhD student at the DPT-UNIL. When she is not taking care of her beloved/hatred cells, she is hiking, cooking or reading. Don’t try to plan anything during winter weekends, as you may only find her on the powder, skiing or snowboarding! She joined BSNL in order to learn more about job opportunities in industry and what exactly these jobs entail on an everyday basis. That’s why she would like to create a new column on our website: “A day in the life of…”.



“To start a career in life science industries is not always easy. BSNL gives the amazing chance to expand your network and to learn more about job opportunities. This is what pushed me to become a BSNL member”

Petar Šćepanović

Born in Montenegro, Petar studied in Turin, Italy. He is now doing his PhD at the EDBB of
EPFL. Throughout his jobs and studies, he specialized in bioinformatics and in particular in Human genomics.


Of entrepreneurial spirit, Petar wants to take part in organizing events that could be helpful to students in understanding the world of start-ups and translating their ideas into the market.

Stay tuned to hear more about their adventures!
