The symposium will be held at the Vetmeduni Vienna on January 31 and February 01, 2019. The symposium invited speakers from the Vienna Life Science community and from the Vetmeduni Vienna who work in basic and translational biomedical sciences to pave the road for new therapeutic concepts. Their research contributions serve as role models for students and early career scientists. We train students of the MSc program ‘Comparative Biomedicine’on our campus under the principle of “One Health – One Medicine”. The symposium is organized and supported by SFB F61 JakStat Monarchies.
