The program offers outstanding students who are interested in research and development-oriented scientific advances in a dynamic and lively scientific environment. The VBC Austria aspires to bring together talented, brilliant, and masterminds from across the world and place them in the world’s most fascinating scientific labs to allow them to grow and improve. The best part of this Vienna summer school 2023 is that fellow students will be able to travel to Europe for free to learn how to use the latest technologies and work in the world’s top laboratories. A wide range of research programs enhances the Vienna Biocenter. The summer student program is structured in such a way that each fellow is assigned a faculty member with whom he or she will work closely and independently. The Biocenter is well-known for its talented professors. Kim Nasmyth, for example, got the Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences for his groundbreaking work on chromosomal segregation.
