Online 16th YSA PhD Symposium 2021

17th and 18th June 2021

YSA PhD Symposium - 17th and 18th June 2021

Welcome to the website of the Online 16th YSA PhD Symposium 2021 - which took place on the 17th and 18th of June - bringing together international scientists, students and all participants! We have welcomed 5 outstanding keynote lectures and >150 poster/oral presentations in >25 exciting sessions. The diverse doctoral programmes of the Medical University of Vienna were impressively represented. A big thank you goes to our 5 keynote speakers, all participants and everyone who made the Symposium possible!

The valuable and highly informative content stays online: the abstracts can still be accessed via the database and single keynote talks can be watched on-demand below (videos coming soon).

With that, we can only highlight the upcoming 17th YSA PhD Symposium 2022. The Young Scientist Association invites all members of the Medical University of Vienna and of course beyond to participate and scientifically contribute to the success of the next Symposium in 2022.
