SYMPOSIUM IN HONOR OF SUSAN GASSER
POSTPONED FROM 2020 TO 2021

Frontiers in Genome Biology

Unfortunately, given the epidemiological situation and a potential stronger increase of cases in autumn in Switzerland, we decided to forego the symposium this year. We could not have organized an event celebrating science and Susan, that lives from warm interactions, in an entirely safe way. We intend to postpone the symposium to next year and will provide more information here as soon as possible.
