    SIB PhD Training Network Retreat

    24-26 June 2019, Fribourg


    The annual retreats are exclusively reserved to the Training Network (TN) members and combine, in a relaxed atmosphere, interactive sessions in which the students can both present their work as well as network with their peers and with a speaker/tutor, usually a Group Leader from a Swiss University. Furthermore, we organize a social/fun activity.
    This year we are very happy to invite Dr Frédéric Schütz, co-group leader of SIB Bioinformatics Core Facility, Lausanne.
