  • R&D: Life Sciences Research at the University of Vienna is curiosity-driven and spans the fields of Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology, Environmental Biology and Pharmacy. Most groups investigate basic research questions, but a significant number are also active in more applied fields of Life Sciences and have extensive experience in co-operations with industry.
  • Services: Research at the University is supported by cutting edge infrastructure which is increasingly organised in shared core facility centers which are located at various faculties. Our goal is to provide all University members access to state-of-the-art equipment, techniques and facilities. We can provide the necessary expertise for the use of instruments, for analyses, or materials for further use. Free capacities can, in principle, also be offered to other researchers outside of the University.
