Frontiers of Science seminars will start on Thursday 1 February 2024

    Frontiers of Science seminar program is ready for spring 2024. All seminars are on-site only at 12:00 in BioCity, Presidentti auditorium. Coffee and sandwich are served before each seminar.


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

    – This spring season the program is particularly interesting since BioCity Turku researchers have invited researchers widely from different fields to talk about their work, says BioCity Turku Scientific Director, Professor Klaus Elenius.

    – We all will have a great possibility to learn more about ie. bioimaging, biomaterials, cancer research and biocatalysis, Elenius continues.


    PhD researcher, have a face-to-face lunch with the speaker!

    BioCity Turku offers a great possibility for PhD researchers 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 PhD researchers or early-career postdocs. 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 researchers to start building their own scientific networks.
