Frontiers of Science seminars will start the spring season on Thursday 2 February at 12:00

    Frontiers of Science spring seminars are starting again. All seminars are on-site only at 12:00 in BioCity, Presidentti auditorium, if not stated otherwise. 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.

    – This is the first Frontiers of Science seminar program, which is put together by the new BioCity Turku research programs, says Professor Klaus Elenius, the Scientific Director of BioCity Turku.

    – The research programs were elected last spring and while some of them are familiar from the previous five-year period, there are some new ones on board. It will be exciting to listen to all these talks and hear the world-leading scientists presenting their work, Elenius continues.


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

    BioCity Turku offers a great possibility for students and young 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 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.
