Life Science Week

Life Science Week

The best way to prepare for life outside of academia.



Highlighting current social and scientific issues in today’s society.

We are the Young Scientist Network, a non-profit organization created and run by a group of graduate students & post-docs of the University and the ETH Zurich. Young Scientist Network operates under the wing of Life Science Zurich culminating in our acronym LSZYSN.

We strive to reduce the existing gap between academic research and the life science industry.

We host events 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.
