Newsletter 4/2021
Dear reader,

Short films are a great way to speak about scientific research. Below, you find the dates of two different science film events well worth looking into. Evolution is still a hot topic: Visit the exhibition at the UZH Zoological Museum and find out more. These and further interesting events are listed in today's newsletter.

Our next newsletter is planned for August - until then we wish you a nice summertime!

Best regards,
Life Science Zurich

Public screening SciFilmIt
Online cinema evening on "Health: Human and Planet", 30 June 2021, 7pm
It's our pleasure to invite you to the online cinema evening of SciFilmIt Hackathon Zurich on Wednesday 30th of June (7pm).

During three intense days young scientists from UZH and ETH have been co-creating with artists and filmmakers to tell their research to the public through film. They are looking forward to sharing with you their short cinema films and to exciting discussions on science and art during the online apero. The films will be evaluated by an expert jury (jury prize) and you (public prize).

Invite some friends, follow the link, enjoy the show, and vote for your favourite film!

To attend the event, follow the link on the website (open to everyone, no registration required, in English with German subtitles).

We are looking forward to seeing you during the event.
Evolution happens
Evolution happens! Exhibition from 15 June to 28 November 2021
This special exhibition at the Zoological Museum of the University of Zurich opened recently. Based on examples from the research fields of medicine, agriculture, and nature conservation "evolution happens!" conveys that evolutionary processes shape our environment and are also observable today. With numerous interactive components, the exhibition invites you to participate.

Free entrance. Read more here.
Science Filmmaking Marathon 2021
5th Science Filmmaking Marathon, 16 - 18 September 2021
In the filmmaking marathon, young researchers learn how to use tools used in dramatic storytelling and filmmaking to communicate their research, thereby making their science more readily accessible for a broader audience. Working in groups supervised by professional filmmakers they will produce their own short films during three course days. The films will be screened as premieres at the 4th Global Science Film Festival with a special award for the best film.

feminno call 5
feminno – female innovation and career development in Life Sciences
 Are you a female scientist or an alumna from a Swiss University interested in innovation and personal development?
 Are you interested in career opportunities, especially in Switzerland, at the interface between research, innovation and industry?
 Do you want to develop your ideas into an innovation, or are you asking yourself how your ideas could generate a new technology, product or service either in cooperation with an enterprise or as a start-up? Are you looking for know-how to launch such a process?
 Are you asking yourself how to develop your talents with a positive work-life balance?
 Do you want to increase your self-confidence, internalize your strengths and trust your decisions with the support of qualified mentors?
Then join the feminno course that starts in September 2021! The 5th call is open until 30 July 2021.

For more information and application see the website.

ZIHP Symposium 2021
17th Symposium of the Zurich Center for Integrative Human Physiology
The Zurich Center for Integrative Human Physiology (ZIHP) has the pleasure to announce its 17th Symposium, which will take place on Tuesday, 7 September 2021. Basic researchers and clinical scientists will get together to present and discuss their research in fields related to human physiology. This year’s symposium will be under the theme “Past and present – 16 years of knowledge” and the keynote speakers are previous ZIHP assistant professors and symposium speakers that will talk about their path since their work with the ZIHP.

More information and registration on the website. Deadline for registration is Tuesday, 27 August 2021

Since its founding in 2005, the ZIHP has brought together many researchers beyond institutional and faculty borders. As the ZIHP is facing a possible closing by the end of this year, this might be its last symposium. The ZIHP is looking forward to having you one last time!
