Welcome to the “Pathophysiology of the Placenta” Group, headed by Isabella Ellinger. We are part of the Institute for Pathophysiology and Allergy Research at the Center for Pathophysiology, Infectiology and Immunology at the Medical University of Vienna, Austria.
I am a dedicated lecturer (first mission) and researcher (second mission) and with my work aim at contributing to the three main cornerstones of the academic system of the MedUni Vienna that are research, education and patient care. I am convinced of the importance of third mission activities; thus, I persue an intense exchange on science with people of all ages. As a member of two female scientists networks (WISIA, WNWmed), I am also a passionate advocate of empowerment of women in science. Overall, my activities align to UN sustainable development goals (SDGs) 3 and 4 and thus shall 1) ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages and 2) foster lifelong learning for all.
Finally, I hope that we can make our Institute and University more sustainable. Thus, we initiated Green IPA
Third Mission l Science Education and Scientific Communication
MedUni Vienna's Institute of Pathophysiology and Allergy Research has been named a Centre of Excellence for Quantitative Digital Microscopy. The research facility at MedUni Vienna's Centre for Pathophysiology, Infectiology and Immunology has thus been recognised by the manufacturer TissueGnostics as a global leader in the use of this technology, known as the TissueFAXS platform.
