Prof. Patrick Gunning of the University of Toronto in Canada presented a talk on “Targeting STAT3 and STAT5 proteins with direct-binding, small molecule inhibitors”
Prof. Waldemar Priebe of MD Anderson Cancer Center The University of Texas in Houston USA gave a talk on “Transcriptional control of cancer: Emerging new treatments”
Mag. Claudia Lingner, DI Josef Pröll, Prof. Richard Moriggl supported by staff of the LBI-CR hosted Mag. Georg Kapsch, the president of the Federation of Austrian Industries on June 2, 2014. Mag. Kapsch showed himself impressed by the possibilities of modern cancer research and showed particular interest for the potential of novel cancer models generated through genetic modification.

Date: Monday, 28th of April 2014, Time: 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Dr. Martin Jechlinger will present his research on "Oncogene Dependence and Survival of Residual Cells” on Monday, March 3 at 13:00 at the LBI-CR.
After three successful and multidisciplinary „Meet Science“ events of the LBG, the idea was born to set up a special meeting for all Ludwig Boltzmann Institutes and Clusters, who are active in the area of medicine and life sciences as well as its related disciplines. The main purpose of such a meeting: to get to know each other’s research, to establish new cooperations under the roof of the LBG and to inform the medical community/public about the health related LBG activities. The common denominator of the participating institutes and clusters is also the namesake of the meeting: Health Sciences
With this meeting the LBG sets a mark to promote its core topic health sciences, which is defined as one of the LBG’s special characteristics besides the promotion of translational research and the strong inter- and transdisciplinarity of all Ludwig Boltzmann Institutes and Clusters.
As a science policy forum the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG) asked for the first time researchers, policy makers and journalists to get together for the "Weinherbst" on the 20th Floor of the new Raiffeisen building in the heart of Vienna. The impressive panorama presented the backdrop for an inspiring meeting of science and research community. President of LBG Josef Pröll and science and research minister Univ.-Prof. Dr. Karlheinz Töchterle welcomed the numerous guests.
Andreas Sommer, head of genomics at the Campus Support Facility (CSF), gave an introduction to the tecnological advances in modern genetics and highlighted the capabilities and options available to external researchers. At a subseqent get together members of the LBI-CR explored access to the facilities and discussed differernt technological options. All in all the Seminar provided a stimulating reminder to include modern genomics technologies into the research approaches of the LBI-CR.
