Ideas Lab: Mental Health for Children and Adolescents - Kickoff for new research groups set up LBG. Call for applications now open! Participate in the five-day Ideas Lab focusing on the challenge “Children of mentally ill parents”.

The new Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases is hiring a Key Researcher / Principal Investigator and two Technical Assistants.

The Ludwig Boltzmann Society (LBI Trauma) is partner in a just started 2020 Health EC project within regenerative medicine (PHC 16 call) 2016-2019.

The project “Arrest Blindness” deals with Eye Cornea Regeneration/Replacement by tissue engineering technology. This project was one of 6 (out of 312 applications) which were funded. Of such new therapies about 200.000 patients/year (Europe only) could benefit.

In an Open Innovation project unique to Europe, dubbed ''Tell us!', the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft has brought patients, family members and healthcare professionals into the effort of generating research questions.

On the 20th of October the LBG presented two new Ludwig Boltzmann Institutes (LBI). Both LBI are the result of the fourth call for proposals for the formation of new institutes.

The following scientists were able to convince the international experts of their research programme during the ambitious peer review process: Dr. Kaan Boztug, LBI for Rare and Undiagnosed Diseases and Dr. Markus Mitterhauser, LBI for Applied Diagnostics.

We wish both directors and their teams best of luck for their future work!
