Short biography: Long standing scientific focus on translational and basic research in the areas of RNA (patho)biology, RNA Therapeutics, extracellular vesicles, chemical biology, pharmaceutical drug discovery, and drug delivery. More than 18 years of experience in pharmaceutical drug discovery in the global healthcare industry where she has been directing interdisciplinary, international teams of scientists covering quantitative molecular and cellular biology and cellular engineering to biophysics/molecular imaging, medicinal chemistry, computational biology and in vivo pharmacology. Her most recent work at the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research, Basel/CH has focused on the use of extracellular vesicles for drug delivery, and the discovery of new medicines targeting Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Faculty member at the Paris-Lodron University of Salzburg since 12/2018. Her nascent research team at the Department of Biosciences has a mission on resolving biomedically relevant mechanisms of extracellular vesicles, RNA drugs and RNA pathologies to ultimately enable development of innovative biopharmaceutical applications. She is also engaged as a scientific consultant for major pharma companies and bioventure funds in the areas of Extracellular Vesicles, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, RNA therapeutics and Rare diseases and is acting on Scientific Advisory Boards for translational research initiatives such as Project FIT (Brno, CZ - http://www.fit-vri.com/en/).

    The Vice Rectorate for Research, Nicola Hüsing, received five thousand face masks, which were donated by Gebrüder Woerle Ges.m.b.H. in keeping with the motto „SHARING is CARING“ . The face masks were given out to the employees of the University of Salzburg.
    Due to the current situation personal contact with the Psychological Counseling Center is not possible at the moment. We are however available by e-mail, telephone, chat or video chat. Unfortunately, our normal range of workshops cannot take place in the usual way. We would however like to offer the following webinars as an alternative.
    We are gradually learning how to adapt to the Corona outbreak, both in our everyday lives as well as at the university. For us, this means changing to online teaching for the duration of the current semester. Courses and exams held in lecture halls and seminar rooms will not be possible, with exception to some special exams. Regulations for this are currently being drawn up; exceptions are also to be made for selected laboratory exercises and practical sports courses.
    Information of 23rd April 2020: The Minister of Science’s new ruling on special regulations for study law at universities has now been announced, which gives us the opportunity to regulate some important matters. Please note that these regulations have been set for a limited time period (i.e. for this semester, but sometimes even beyond this).
