Who we are

We are a group of motivated PhD students enrolled in the “Cancer and Immunology” program at different stages of our studies and from different departments.


Our major role is to communicate PhD students opinions, concerns and needs to the program coordinator to help the PhD program committee.


Lastly, we inform the PhD students about changes and other useful information about the program, Unil and Lausanne. Finally, we are the first contact for new PhD students to help them to start well their scientific career on the campus and their life in and around Lausanne.


You will find more informations on our welcome package to get started in Lausanne as a new PhD student.


As a PhD student of the Cancer and Immunology program, you can always contact us for work-related or unrelated problem, for suggestions to improve the program or to give feedback!


We are always looking for enthusiastic new members to represent the students, so if you are interested, please send us an email.
