Life Sciences Switzerland (LS2)

Logo of 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 in 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.
USGEB was the umbrella society for the Swiss Societies of Biochemistry, Anatomy, Histology and Embryology, Physiology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, and Experimental Pharmacology.
In 2012, USGEB changed its name to LS2 (Life Sciences Switzerland) under the presidency of Prof. Gisou van der Goot (EPFL), and in 2016 three of the founding societies merged to become the largest Life Sciences Society in Switzerland.
