Young Investigators Day 2012

The Young Investigators Day provides a platform for young students to present their work and the work of their groups in a stimulating environment.
Its main aim is to connect young researchers in the broad field of computational life sciences and give them a chance to think outside of the box.


April 19, 2012 11.00-16.00 including lunch


Althanstrasse 14, 1090 Vienna, UZAII Seminarroom 2D404
