At this year’s Vetmeduni Science Day, there were interesting talks, poster sessions from students, networking opportunities as well as awards given in recognition of outstanding scientific contributions from the previous year. Members of the Moriggl lab, Richard Moriggl and Heidi Neubauer, were very successful and received three awards.
Lab head Richard Moriggl was awarded with the ‘Vetmeduni Vienna ‘Scientist of the Year’ Award, non-clinical category: Highest number of citations’.
Heidi Neubauer was awarded with the ‘Vetmeduni Vienna ‘Young Scientist of the Year’ Award, non-clinical category: Highest number of citations’ and the ‘Vetmeduni Vienna ‘Young Scientist of the Year’ Award, non-clinical category: Most third-party funding’.
From the 20th – 23rd October members of the Moriggl lab were excited to join the 7th Annual Meeting of the International Cytokine & Interferon Society that took place in the beautiful Hofburg in Vienna.
Our group was represented by well-received posters from Tobias Suske, Anna Orlova, Christina Maria Wagner and Helena Sorger. A highlight of the conference was an interesting selected short talk by Heidi Neubauer about the gain-of-function STAT5B N642H mutation as a driver of mature T cell leukemia/ lymphoma.
Richard, accompanied by Heidi and Tobi, enjoyed some days at the 2019’s Midwinter Conference in Tirol.
Besides presenting two posters at the event and extensively discussing recent topics in Immunology, they could also enjoy some winter sports in the beautiful Seefeld. Thank you for organising this unique and inspiring conference!
