Swiss Summer School 2022 on Chemical Biology

The Swiss Summer Schools are out-of-town seminars for MSc, PhD and postdoctoral students with a focus on Chemical Synthesis or Chemical Biology. They offer a platform to students for the scientific exchange with peers and lecturers from academia and industry. The students are expected to actively involve themselves by presenting a poster or a short communication on their research.

The Summer Schools have a long tradition and date back to the séminaires du 3ième cycle of the 1960ies. First organized by a consortium of Swiss universities, they are now held as national events organized by the Swiss Chemical Society. The Swiss Summer School 2019 in Villars and the Swiss Summer School 2021 in Les Diablerets were the first two events organized by the Swiss Chemical Society.

The focus of the 2022 edition of the Swiss Summer Schools is on Chemical Biology.

Chemical Biology is destined to answer questions in biology in the broadest sense by using chemistry, chemical techniques or novel chemical probes, but with the biology in the center of the work. It is targeting or attempting to understand chemistry in intact cells, tissues or entire animal systems.
