Congratulations to Nicole Schreiner for completing her Masters degree and our best wishes to her for the future!
We have packed up everything and have moved the labs and offices. You now find us on the 3rd floor of the Natural Sciences faculty main building, at Hellbrunnerstr. 34.
There has been a change in the team: Our trusted technician Anna Strobl has left us to try something new. We are thrilled to have recruited Dr. Zita Liutkevičiūtė to take her place. A warm welcome to our team!
FFG-funded „talente practical“ for pupils 2020: Sarah Konrad gathered lab-experience in our group last May. We are pleased to report that her written report of this practical has been rated as one of the 20 best reports. Unfortunately the planned prize ceremony in the Urania (Vienna) could not take place.

We have performed targeted methylation analyses in lung cancer risk loci – and the results have just been published in Epigenetics: Link to article
Congratulations to Angelika! She has received the starter grant of the Austrian Diabetes Society (ÖDG).
Her grant has the following title: “INVESTIGATION OF DNA SECONDARY STRUCTURES AS DRIVERS OF ALTERED EPIGENETIC MODIFICATIONS IN OBESITY AND TYPE 2 DIABETES”!
We are very happy with her!
1 year has passed and now it is time to say goodbye to our dear Katharina. Katharina supported us for 1 year as technical assistant! Thank you very much for your efforts, dear Katharina, we will miss you very much!
Congratulations Esther Schamschula for the paper:
It is time so say goodbye to our Esther! Esther is now finished with the laboratory work and will now finish the writing part of her PhD thesis in the beautiful Tyrol! Esther, we will miss you!
We are proud to announce that Prof. Angela Risch is corresponding author of the following paper:
