History of the LBI-CR

The Beginning

The initiative to found a new Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Cancer Research was started in 2004 and successfully accomplished in September 2005. Originally, the Ludwig Boltzmann Society initiated a reform process to consolidate their portfolio with the goal to found bigger research units. In response to their first call a consortium of young researchers from the Institute of Molecular Pathology, Medical University Vienna and Biocenter Basel formed a team to explore new ground in cancer research.
They developed a research application in cooperation with the Medical University Vienna, Institute of Molecular Pathology, Children’s Cancer Research Institute and the company TissueGnostics GmbH, which was favourably evaluated by international experts and accepted in December 2004 as one out of six new Ludwig Boltzmann Institutes.
