18th Annual Vienna BioCenter PhD Program Symposium "Building Bridges" - 4/5 November

In the 18th Vienna BioCenter PhD Program symposium “Building Bridges” we want to put the diversity of life science in the spotlight and highlight the importance of interdisciplinarity in scientific research for our current understanding of fundamental biological questions.

With “Building Bridges” we want to put the diversity of life science in the spotlight and highlight the importance of interdisciplinarity in scientific research for our understanding of fundamental biological questions. The symposium will feature a diverse panel of scientific speakers from disciplines relevant to our campus (Immunology & Cancer, Biochemistry & Biophysics, Development & Neuroscience, Industry). 

All attendees are encouraged to present their own projects and win prizes! As part of the PhD career day, we will offer career workshops for PhD students on-site with experts from industry, academia and beyond.  

This year’s symposium will be held in a hybrid format. Attendees outside of Vienna are invited to join us online, with the whole program being streamed virtually. People located in Vienna are welcome to join in person, adhering to our current COVID-19 measurements.
