The FEBS3+ LS2 Annual Meeting in Zurich – an insight from a young scientist

Tuesday, 25 February 2020 04:12

On February 13th and 14th more than 400 scientists from different countries and scientific backgrounds gathered together in Zurich for this year’s FEBS3+ Life Science Switzerland (LS2) Annual Meeting 2020 under the theme "Cells, Molecules and Organisms", including numerous scientists from Austria. It was the first time that this meeting was jointly organized with the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM), as well as the Austrian Association of Molecular Life Sciences and Biotechnology (ÖGMBT) - and it was a huge success.

Students and Young Scientists

A membership in the ÖGMBT brings a whole range of advantages already during your studies. This is reflected, among other things, in the large number of activities that enable to exchange and network with other students, young professionals and scientists across institutes and even across countries. As a Bachelor student I experienced this once more by getting the opportunity to participate at the FEBS3+ LS2 meeting. Already last year, at the 11th Annual Meeting of the ÖGMBT in Salzburg, the Young Life Scientists Austria (YLSA) decided together with the Junior-GBM (jGBM) to attend the LS2 Annual Meeting to connect with the Swiss young scientists and learn from each other.
