Stained Hippocampal Neuron

The Divisions of Pharmacology and Physiology of Karl Landsteiner University are kindly inviting you to a brand-new basic research seminar series! 


The invited experts give seminars in Neuroscience, Cancer Research, Immunology, and many more to stimulate scientific discussions and strengthen the scientific environment at Campus Krems and beyond.


The more, the merrier - open to the students and staff of Karl Landsteiner University and the University hospitals. Further available to all institutions of Campus Krems.


Every second Wednesday at noon with a few exceptions.
The exact schedule with speaker names is available below.
