Währinger Str. 25

From 2020-2023 the Medical Neuroscience Cluster has awarded 7 intramural research grants ("seed grants") to foster collaborations between preclinical and clinical researchers of the Medical University of Vienna and support joint grant application to external funding sources. At the same time, 10 young investigators have been recognized for their early career achievements ("Young Investigator Award").

This symposium is conceptualized as roadshow to present these projects and scientists to the entire neuroscience community and will also entail three keynote lectures, including basic, translational and clinical research topics for an exciting day of neuroscience at the Medical University of Vienna.
