The aim of this 3rd “Development and Stem Cells” regional meeting on February 28th, 2020, is to initiate a scientific dialogue, exchange of know-how about new technologies, and open opportunities for collaboration between groups and institutes around Vienna.
Our goal is to encourage the establishment of a coherent scientific community in the area, which is why the meeting is free of registration fees. This conference is also specifically aimed at PhD students and postdocs. We thus encourage everyone to submit abstracts for poster presentations. Several abstracts will be selected for short talks (which will make up the bulk of the conference). There will also be 1 min flash-talks to advertise posters.
Apart from talks by PhD students and postdocs, two keynote lectures will be given by Anna Kicheva (IST Austria) and Nicolas Rivron (IMBA).
The regional meeting 2020 is a joint effort of members of several regional research institutes:
- IST Austria
- University of Vienna
- Medical University of Vienna
- Max Perutz Labs Vienna
- Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP)
- Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA)
- Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology (GMI)
