Saltiel Life Sciences Symposium

About the Annual Symposium

 

Each year, the LSI brings together top scientists from a range of disciplines to share work around a common theme. 

 

The event represents the LSI’s most important values: excellence in science, investment in high-impact research, and the spark that happens when researchers with varied expertise exchange ideas, methods, and insights.

 

The symposium was baked into the institute's DNA from the very beginning — with the first event in 2002 happening while construction on the LSI building was still underway.

 

In 2016 the event was named the Saltiel Life Sciences Symposium to honor the contributions of former director Alan Saltiel.
