Herzlich Willkommen auf der Homepage des Instituts fĂĽr Pathophysiologie und Allergieforschung!


GegrĂĽndet im Jahr 1873
gehört das IPA zu den ältesten Forschungsinstituten der Medizinischen Universität Wien.
Derzeit haben wir 130 interdisziplinäre und internationale MitarbeiterInnen, deren Forschungsarbeit darauf abzielt, pathophysiologische Vorgänge besser zu verstehen und daraus innovative Konzepte zu entwickeln, die der Diagnose, Prophylaxe und Therapie von Erkrankungen dienen. Zusätzlich legen wir Wert auf höchste Qualität in der Lehre und Ausbildung von MedizinerInnen und NaturwissenschafterInnen. Darüber hinaus bietet das IPA die postgradualen
Ausbildungen zu FachärztInnen für Pathophysiologie und Immunologie an.
