Synthesis at the Interface of Chemistry and Biology

The NCCR Chemical Biology Symposium highlights technological advances at the interface of chemistry and biology and their use to address key problems in biology. The symposium is a half-day event comprised of four plenary lectures by internationally recognized scientists followed by a reception to foster interactions among the participants. With sessions chaired by NCCR members Suliana Manley and Elena Dubikovskaya and an introduction by NCCR Chemical Biology Co-director Kai Johnsson.
A guided visit of the Academic Chemical Screening Platform for Switzerland (ACCESS) will be offered prior to the start of the symposium (registration required).

To be followed by an apéro at 18:00. All are welcome.
