Message from the MFPL Community President

I would like to personally welcome you to the MFPL Community website portal. The MFPL Community is a professional and social network that will help you to find colleagues wherever you are based and to access the expertise and knowledge of the MFPL Community. The membership is free of charge and includes a directory to search for other members of the MFPL Community, a special MFPL Community Newsletter twice per year, the possibility to arrange and attend events and reunions and a job board, where you will be able to find and post open positions exclusively within the MFPL Community.

As a former University Assistant in the lab of Thomas Decker at the MFPL, I am honored to be taking on the role of the MFPL Community President. During my years at the MFPL I established many wonderful collaborations, both at the MFPL and with groups throughout Vienna. These collaborations have continued after I started my new Assistant Professor position in the United States of America. In 2013 I established a group in the Molecular Microbiology and Immunology Department at Brown University. We are focusing on responses to infectious disease with a focus on the lung.

I would like to encourage you to get involved, to reach out and to connect with us. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us: community [AT] [DOT] at.
