The BioScience Network Lausanne and the SV postdoc association are organizing a company visit at Syngenta on the 7th of October (Friday) 2016 in Basel. The aim of this visit is to promote interactions among researchers in industry and PhD students and postdocs from EPFL and UNIL. Participants will have the opportunity to attend exclusive lab and production site visits at Roche.

The tentative layout of the day is as follows:

  • lunch provide by Syngenta
  • welcoming talk by research
  • lab visits (chemistry lab, biology support and disease control)
