Austrias Life Science Hot-Spot

ÖGMBT is a platform for scientific exchange and diversity by connecting researchers, students and corporates.

The 10th ÖGMBT Annual Meeting in Vienna included various sessions with top-class plenary speakers and gave young scientist the chance to present their work as short talks, poster flashes - for the first time - or during the poster session as posters and get exchanged with colleagues and established scientist from academia and industry.

Biotechnology and molecular biology: Plant biotechnology, optimization of microbial workhorses for biotechnology, microbial chemical production, biopharmaceutical technologies, synthetic biology, molecular microbiology
Medical microbiology and immunology: Neuroimmunology, next-generation pathogen & antibiotic resistance diagnostics, new trends in allergy diagnosis and therapy, microbiomes: interplay of microbes, their hosts and environments, antimicrobial drugs: drug screening and prudent use, antimicrobial resistance: transfer of bugs and genes in diverse ecosystems
Cancer and human disease: From RNAomics to function, biological barriers in health and disease, extracellular vesicles in coagulation and inflammation, pluripotent stem cells and neural differentiation, cancer metabolism, autophagy and cell death, biomaterials in surgery, translational oncology
