Stefan Böhm

Stefan Boehm
Professor of Neuropharmacology, Medical University of Vienna
Director of Curriculum

Aside of serving as director of the doctoral school, I am chairman of the Department of Neurophysiology and Neuropharmacology at the Centre for Physiology and Pharmacology. This provides me with the opportunity to take care of the undergraduate teaching with respect to medical neurosciences. In regard of doctoral studies, I am responsible for the entire educational framework. In the organization of the doctoral studies, I am supported by Sylvia Knapp, Vesna Dominkovic and Dieter Breitenbaum and I would like to thank them for their excellent continuing commitment.

Sylvia Knapp
Professor of Infection Biology
Deputy Director


I am a Professor of Infection Biology at the Department of Medicine 1, and am committed to PhD training ever since I did my own PhD in the Netherlands. As a former clinician who transitioned to basic research, I am very dedicate to support the scientific education of PhD students, and to foster the next generation of ‘physician-scientists’ at the MedUni Vienna. In my position as the Deputy Director, I oversee the thesis proposal and registration process, in addition to being involved in the educational framework and our continued endeavors to advance the PhD program.
