Dear ÖGMBT members, dear colleagues,

We are more than excited to announce the online 13th ÖGMBT Annual Meeting with the title “From Molecular Machines to Translational Medicine”.

The start will be on September 20, with a formal opening followed by a ceremony for the winners of the prestigious “Life Science Awards Austria 21”, in which these will also present their work.

Then, from September to October each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon top notch researchers will present and discuss their scientific highlights. We will have 15 Life Science Session in total bringing something for everyone’s taste and interest.

Key dates:

July 1 – the online registrations starts / registration is free for ÖGMBT members!

August 1 - abstract submission deadline for science flashes and short talks

Once again, we are planning an unforgettable scientific voyage and best experience for you and look forward to your abstracts and your registration!

Stay tuned for further information as we update the program!
