Name: Partner 7: Medizinische Universität Wien, Austria
Address: Spitalgasse 23, 1090 Wien, Austria
Summary: The Medical University of Vienna (briefly: MedUni Vienna) is one of the most traditional medical training and research facilities in Europe. It is today the largest medical training institute in the German-speaking area with about 8,000 students. With its 26 university hospitals, two clinical institutes, 12 theoretical medicine centres and numerous highly specialised laboratories, it is included among the most important cutting-edge research institutes of Europe in the area of biomedicine. Its own laboratory building with highly specialised \"Core Facilities” was inaugurated in June 2010 with the “Anna Spiegel Research Building\".
Single cell data in neural crest: We do have our own scientific philosophy and we respect theoretical biology in addition to classical experimental approach. We look at a range of live systems from a mechanistic point of view, trying to decompose and reverse engineer different parts or aspects of life. Tracing the incremental advancements in development of multicellular organisms from single cell allows understanding the complexity of the entire organism or organ system in a final phase. That is why our main strength is developmental biology. The knowledge gained from developmental biology research is widely applied in regenerative medicine, and, thus, we hope to improve human health via discovering new fundamental ideas about how regeneration works.
Prof. Adameyko’s lab will be hosting the young researcher ESR12, who will be focusing on prediction of new treatments for rare paediatric paraganglioma and pheochromocytoma based on single cell transcriptomics.
