The Swiss Proteomics meeting is an annual event gathering more than 100 proteomic/life science researchers from Switzerland and neighboring countries. The meeting will be held on April 19 and 20, 2018 in Eurotel Montreux, Switzerland. With Profs. Matthias Selbach & Jennifer Van Eyk, we have an excellent line-up of keynote speakers!

Matthias Selbach, Max-Delbrück-Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC), Berlin, Germany
“Proteome Dynamics”

Jennifer Van Eyk, Cedars Sinai, Los Angeles, CA, USA
“Medicine and Me: a route to individualized monitoring and intervention”

With a new executive team the LS2 Proteomics section aims to reach out to researchers, who are interested in proteomics, but are not necessarily proteomics experts. This meeting is therefore a great opportunity for PhD students, post-docs and group leaders to learn from & connect with researchers using advanced mass spectrometric strategies in order to get mechanistic insights into dynamic biological processes. The topic is accordingly straightforward:

“New Trends in Proteomics”

The Proteomics meeting is different in many respects. We do focus within a 24 hour format - from Thursday at noon to Friday early afternoon - on bringing the younger generation of proteomic researchers to the table. Most Swiss PI's will bring several lab members, if not their whole team to the meeting. A higher number of flash talks provide students with the opportunity to present their research & advancements. The meeting is very interactive and participants appreciated very much the opportunity to directly talk to PIs, keynote speakers and vendors - something which is quite tricky to accomplish at larger international meetings.

There will be a prize for the best oral presentation!
