16th Annual VBC PhD Symposium on “Metamorphosis – Transforming Science”

16th Annual VBC PhD Symposium on “Metamorphosis – Transforming Science”

  • 08 November 2018 - 09 November 2018
  • Vienna BioCenter, IMP Lecture Hall, Vienna, Austria


Every year, the graduate students enrolled in the Vienna BioCenter PhD Programme organise an international symposium at the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP). This year’s topic is “Metamorphosis - Transforming Science”.  The talks focus on aspects in science that have been particularly driven by change and that in turn have the potential to transform society, posing new challenges that are calling for creative answers.

The talks cover a wide range of topics – from new technologies in the lab to targeted therapies in medicine, from regeneration biology and diseases of aging to professional communication strategies. Together with invited experts from around the globe, the students wish to address and discuss these issues in an inspiring atmosphere during the two day event.
