Vienna Biocenter Summer School

A number of our research groups participate in the Vienna Biocenter Summer School, which offers 12 week courses for undergraduate students during the summer months. Working side by side with our scientists, the students can get insight into worldclass research and prepare for graduate studies in molecular or cell biology. The summer school is jointly organized with our neighbors, the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP), the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA) and the Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology (GMI).
