Who We Are

We are the Life Science Zurich Young Scientist Network, a non-profit organization created and run by a group of graduate students & post-docs of the University of Zurich and the ETH Zurich.

We strive to connect life scientists to career opportunities beyond academia.

We host events, as the virtual Zurich Life Science Day, to allow young academics to explore the world of biotechnology and to stimulate constructive interactions between people from various life science sectors.

We envision that our efforts will contribute to the formation of a well-informed, competitively skilled and well-connected local and global life science community.
