The SeminBar brings new know-how on molecular systems engineering to researchers and the interested public alike. The next SeminBar is coming up on 2 November featuring Prof. Brad Hyman.

The NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering unites 27 active research projects with close to 100 researchers in an interdisciplinary approach. The diversity of the researchers and the various universities and institutes involved guarantee cross-fertilization in a stimulating working environ-ment. To strive for the best results, it is vital to have a 360 degree vision, while simultaneously remaining focussed on this NCCR.

To inspire and to bring an outside view into the NCCR Molecular Sys-tems Engineering, SeminBar regularly features international scientists talking about their research emphasising key scientific concepts rele-vant to molecular systems engineering. Students introduce the speakers.

The SeminBar at Ackermannshof in Basel is in English and starts at 6 pm. It is open to the public. No reservations are necessary. After the talk, starting at 9 pm, students organise various cultural events at the bar and DJ Morbus Nova provides the musical ambiance.
