Dear Students,
each year the Seminar in Biotechnology will focus on a different subject in an emerging field in biotechnology; in 2024 our subject is Prevention of zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance: vaccines and pandemic preparedness, as fostered by the One Health mission. We envision an integral, collaborative approach, including several fields (colours) of biotechnology. We hope you can relate to the interpretation and communication of one or of several of these!

The topcis for the presentation will be presented and distributed among registered students during the introductory meeting (March 4th, 11h, per zoom: https://bokuvienna.zoom.us/j/62801063564?pwd=Y3M2bEFFTjFOU2RSSWNXNFdxNVlOZz09).
