After the Life Science Career Fair on Sept 19, the subsequent three days of the 14th ÖGMBT Annual Meeting will be filled with 15 sessions covering medical aspects of the life sciences, applied aspects and a diverse set of basic research. It is a good mix of invited international talks and talks by students, a company trade show including exhibitors quiz and many networking activities. So prepare yourself and register in time! (Please note that seperate registrations are needed for both events)
15 scientific sessions this year will again focus on biotechnology and synthetic biology, cell biology and immunology as well as cancer research/oncology. Two sessions focus on plant biology and plant biotechnology. Microbiology is also prominently represented: a session in cooperation with the International Bioprocessing Association on September 22, for example, is about industrial microbiology. One of the sessions on microbiology will be led by Stefan Pflügl from the Vienna University of Technology who won one of the START prizes from the Austrian Science Research Fund (FWF) this year.
The afternoon of September 21 is dedicated to several doctoral colleges. Last but not least, the daily poster sessions also serve to promote networking. Each young scientist who has submitted an abstract has the chance to win one of the prizes for Best Talk or Best Poster.
The ÖGMBT Annual Meeting is also famous for its “Wine & Science” reception on September 20, which is included in the registration fee. The exhibitors bring along wine for tasting with the participants and ÖGMBT takes care of bread and cheese.
The deadline for poster abstract submissions has been extended until August 25!The detailed program is now online!
