Frontiers of Science seminars start again October 6th

    Frontiers of Science Seminar program is ready for autumn 2022. All seminars are on-site only at 12:00 either in BioCity, Presidentti auditorium (October and November) or in Aurum, Argentum auditorium (December). Coffee and sandwich is served before each seminar.


    Frontiers of Science is a 25-year-old seminar series arranged by BioCity Turku, where BioCity Turku researchers invite world-leading scientists to give a talk and present their latest results from their field of research. The seminars are intended for both researchers and students and students can get ECTs from participation.

    – We are happy to be able to arrange again all the Frontiers of Science seminars on-site. Lectures won’t be recorded nor broadcasted, so the only way to listen to these great talks is to come in person and meet your colleagues, says Professor Klaus Elenius, Scientific Director of BioCity Turku.

    – Also we decided to move a bit away from BioCity neighborhood and since we have plenty of BioCity Turku research groups working in Aurum, we wanted to arrange the December seminar in Argentum auditorium. The December lecture is dealing with computing, data and energy production that are topics, which surely interests many of us, Elenius continues.

    Student, have a face-to-face lunch with a world-leading scientist!

    BioCity Turku offers a great possibility for students and early-career postdocs to create connections for future and to learn hosting skills in a friendly environment. After each seminar, the speaker will have lunch with maximum six students with no PIs around. The atmosphere during the lunch has been very casual and positive, even leading to informal invitations to join the speaker’s research group. This is an excellent opportunity for all PhD students to start building their own scientific networks. If you got interested please send an email to
