Life Sciences Switzerland (LS2)

Life Sciences Switzerland (LS2) is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing biological sciences within the Swiss Academic Community, and to addressing the social, ethical, and economic issues raised by the rapid progress of the biomedical and life sciences.

Originally founded around Prof. Eward Weibel as USGEB (Union of Swiss Societies for Experimental Biology) in 1969, the society has a history of nearly 50 years in federating researchers from various Life Sciences disciplines and in promoting their interests towards the public. In 2012, USGEB changed its name to LS2 (Life Sciences Switzerland) and in 2016, three of the founding societies (Swiss Society for Molecular and Cellular Biosciences, Swiss Proteomics Society, and Swiss Physiological Society) merged, making LS2 the largest Life Sciences Society in Switzerland.

Our actions

LS2 is the society that integrates all facets of the life sciences, from Biochemistry to Physiology. We are actively reaching out to partner societies, organise workshops, satellite, and section meetings, our big annual meeting, and provide travel grants for young researchers to kick-start their academic career. If you are interested in joining LS2, please visit our main website.

LS2 is member of the Platform Biology of the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT). SCNAT provides substantial funding to LS2 that make our actions and events possible.

SCS Fall Meeting 2018

The SCS Fall Meeting offers a unique opportunity for all members of the community to share the results of their research initiatives. It also stimulates the exchange of ideas between all generations of chemists, often creating the seeds for new projects and collaborations. About 1'000 participants will attend the event in Lausanne.
