Doctoral Programme Biointeractions from basics to application (BioApp)

The doctoral college Biointeractions - from basics to application (BioApp) aims to contribute to the understanding of interactions between different prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, with plants and animals, as well as with their abiotic environment (from the species to the domain level). These interactions are still largely unexplored, although they are extremely relevant for natural ecosystems, and also significantly influence biotechnological processes, from wastewater treatment, biogas production and biological remediation of contaminated sites to agrobiotechnology.

This summer semester, we had a different kind of lecture for the BioAPP DK students: instead of focussing on scientific discussions or on pitfalls of data analysis strategies, we put together a small webinar about career choices, and the difficulties (life) scientists have to face.

CRISPR-Cas9: The ultimate tool for all biological problems or biggest threat to future life?

Since the discovery of the newest gene-editing tool CRISPR-Cas9 in 2012 experts and everyone interested are discussing whether this tool will end all biology related issues or cause more problems than it solves. With all the possibilities comes the fear that using CRISPR-Cas9 extensively across disciplines might lead to even bigger biological and ethical problems.


Early-Stage-Pro­jekte ver­ge­ben

Zu Beginn dieses Jahres wurde die bereits fünfte Ausschreibung des Early-Stage-Programmes des Vizerektorats für Forschung gestartet. Ziel des Programms ist es, Dissertant:innen sowie Early Postdocs die Möglichkeit zu geben, ein kleines, eigenständiges Forschungsprojekt am Beginn ihrer wissenschaftlichen Karriere einzuwerben und durchzuführen.

FWF för­dert 14 Pro­jekte

Bei der FWF-Kuratoriumssitzung Ende Juni wurden zahlreiche Projekte von Wissenschaftler:innen der Universität Innsbruck bewilligt, darunter fünf Einzelprojekte, vier Schrödinger-Stipendien und drei Publikationsförderungen.
