The 2nd Annual Meeting of EVOMET took place in Basel, Switzerland between the 4th to the 7th of October 2022. It was a key event within the network to strengthen the relationships among the early stage researchers (ESRs) and promote their professional development as a team. Apart from the fruitful scientific discussions, the meeting also included training activities for ESRs and supervisors that were well received. The meeting also included a scientific session called “Cell-stroma interaction workshop” that was open to the academic community at the University of Basel campus. The session included plenary talks from leading experts in the field including two supervisors from the EVOMET project (Johanna Joyce from UNIL, Switzerland and Sakari Vanharanta from UH, Finland) and other highly recognized invitees: Nicola Aceto (ETH, Switzerland), Curzio Rüeegg (University of Freiburg, Switzerland), Andrea Alimonti (ETH, Switzerland) and Tatiana Petrova (UNIL CHUV, Switzerland).
