Symposium in honor of Prof. P. J. Meier-Abt

The University of Basel, together with the Research Ethics Committee of the Canton of Zurich, the University of Zurich and swissethics, invites you to an international scientific symposium. The aim is to discuss how scientists, clinicians, regulators, research ethics committees, academic institutions, and funding agencies share responsibilities to enhance value and progress in science and medicine. This was a key concern of Prof. Meier-Abt as a researcher, former vice-rector of the University of Basel and former president of the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences. National and international speakers from renowned universities will present cutting-edge examples of data sharing and collaboration between various actors that are vital to foster high quality international biomedical research. Concrete steps will be debated regarding how to overcome present shortcomings, enhance translation in biomedicine, and strive towards a culture of collaboration.

Please note that participation (including lunch and apéro) is free but subject to prior registration. It is possible to register until 05.07.2022 following this link:
