Research Groups

Barrierefreiheit: Kurzbeschreibung des Bildes

Fritz Aberger
The group studies signaling pathways in malignant cancer stem cells responsible for tumor growth, metastasis and disease relapse with the aim to develop treatments that eradicate cancer stem cells by targeted therapy and reactivation of the anti-tumoral immune response.

Hans Brandstetter
The group studies the structure and function of protein complexes in proteolysis and peptide ligation. We exploit this mechanistic understanding to address important questions such as the immune recognition of molecules, with relevance in allergy and cancer.

Albert Duschl
The topics of the group cover nanoparticles and human health, principles of bio-nano interaction, nanosafety, complexes between  nanoparticles and allergens, as well as signal transduction and gene expression in the immune system, regulated by NLR, TLR and cytokine receptors.

Fatima Ferreira
The group investigates how allergens and allergen source-derived factors shape TH2-biased immune responses. Our major aims are to decipher the mechanisms of allergic sensitization to pollen and to translate basic findings into novel approaches to allergy prevention and therapy.

Iris Gratz

The work group studies the function of T cells in the skin, with the aim to elucidate the generation of suppressive, regulatory T cells in autoimmunity, and the role of skin resident T cells in skin wound healing and skin cancer.

Christian Huber

The team focuses its activities toward the establishment of experimental and computational workflows for cancer and allergy models by untargeted "-omics" analyses, which aims at generating unbiased hypotheses for studying molecular mechanisms of allergy and cancer.

Angela Risch

The work group focusses on genetic and epigenetic variations and aberrations in the context of cancer, with the aim of identifying biomarkers of exposure or diagnostic/prognostic markers, as well as new mechanisms in carcinogenesis.

Josef Thalhamer
The group develops novel approaches for the treatment of allergies including RNA and DNA vaccines, epicutaneous vaccination, and nanoparticle formulations. In this context, we explore the role of immune cells in the skin and the influence of fold-stability of proteins on immunogenicity and allergenicity.

Silja Wessler

Infections with Helicobacter pylori are associated with inflammation and gastric cancer. The research of the group focuses on sophisticated mechanisms of pathogen-host interactions which require a complex network of bacterial effector proteins, proteases, etc. interfering with host cell functions and signal transduction pathways.

    "PISA, TIMSS & Co and the Consequences": How can we work with results of international educational research in teacher education?
    Human life takes place in time, as well as in space. Spaces are considered the third educators and are often underestimated pedagogically. The lectures and working groups of the 67th International Educational Work Meeting, being held 9 -13 July, in Salzburg, will discuss this topic among others such as: in which living spaces do children grow up today? How do we deal with digital spaces? Which spaces are particularly relevant pedagogically? What about inner spaces, imaginations and fantasies?
    Rita Grandori will give a guest lecture on the topic, "Protein conformational transitions and intermolecular interactions by native mass spectrometry and complementary biophysical methods" at 16:00 on 25 June, 2018 in the Hörsaal 403 of the NW-Faculty. The Department of Life Sciences invites you to join!
    Herr PD Dr. Reinhard Jung (Austrian Academy of Sciences, OREA) will give a lecture on 26 June on "Mykenisches Griechenland und Italien: verschiedene Arten des Gebens und Nehmens". Time: 18:30 - Location: Abguss-Sammlung SR E.33, Residenzplatz 1.
    Romana Limberger will give a guest lecture on "Food Webs in Changing Environments" at 14:00 on 29 June, 2018, in Hörsaal 421 of the NW faculty. The Department of Life Sciences invites you to join!
    Thanks to a generous legacy on the part of Mr. Kurt Zopf, the University of Salzburg is awarding the Kurt Zopf Prize for Habilitation, endowed with 10,000 Euros, to the qualifying university professors. This year's competition is aimed at the fields of science, human medicine and technical sciences.
    Christoph Czerwenka will hold a guest lecture on 27 June, 2018, at 14:00 in Hörsaal 403 of the NW-Faculty on the topic, "Food Contaminants - Constant New Challenges for the Analytical Chemist". The Department of Life Sciences invites you to join!
    The 6th Salzburg Summer School will take place from 3 to 4 September, 2018. For two days, a comprehensive pedagogical summer education program will be offered to teachers and student teachers of all types of schools and subjects. Registration is possible.
    On Wednesday, 27 June, 2018, at 17:00 s.t., the 5th edition of the online magazine historioPlus will be presented. Location: Rudolfskai 42, 1st floor, HS 389.
    Satyr choir versus "loneliest song". On Nietzsche's aesthetics of the choral.

    This Aniversary Year, the KinderUNI is looking for those who participated at the very beginning of the program! Who attended the first KinderUNIs here in Salzburg in 2004 or 2006?
    Friday, 8 June: 09:45 KEYNOTE: Eliot Borenstein (New York): Plots Against Russia: Conspiracy, Sincerity, and Propaganda // 17:30 ROUND TABLE: Why Do Conspiracy Theories Thrive in Post-Soviet Russia? with Alexander Panchenko, Konstantin Bogdanov, Sergey Shtyrkov, Svetlana Tambovtseva (St. Petersburg) // Erzabt-Klotz-Str. 1, FB Slavic Studies, 3rd floor.
    From now until 3 July is the registration period for the ditact_women's IT Summer School of the University of Salzburg, which will take place from 20 August to 1 September, 2018, at the Unipark Nonntal and at the Fachhochschule Salzburg.
    Education on the subject of Summer School 4 - 5 July, 2018
    DANIEL FULDA (Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg) concludes the public lecture series, LEGALIZATION AND DISCLOSURE: RELIGIOUS POLEMIK AGAINST ART - ARTISTIC POLEMIK AGAINST RELIGION, on 27 June at 18:00 in the Unipark Nonntal with his lecture on meaning and the search for meaning in the literature of the German Enlightenment. http://www.w-k.sbg.ac.at/de/kunstpolemik-polemikkunst
