2.12. - 18:00 PLUS–Public Nobel Prize Evening-Online-Lecture

Online lecture on chemistry: December 2nd 2020 - 6 p.m. Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna received the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of one of the sharpest tools in genetic engineering: the CRISPR / Cas9 genetic scissors. With this technology, researchers can modify the DNA of animals, plants and microorganisms with extremely high precision.

Diese Technologie hat die molekularen Biowissenschaften revolutioniert, neue Möglichkeiten für die Pflanzenzüchtung eröffnet, zu innovativen Krebstherapien beigetragen und möglicherweise den Traum von der Heilung von Erbkrankheiten wahr werden lassen.

Unser Experte zu diesem Thema ist Univ. Prof. Dr. Fritz Aberger

AbergerFritz Aberger promovierte an der Universität Salzburg in den Fächern Genetik und Molekularbiologie. Nach mehreren Aus-landsaufenthalten an international angesehenen Forschungsein-richtungen in den USA, Deutschland und England kehrte er im Jahr 2000 nach Salzburg zurück, wo er die Arbeitsgruppe für Moleku-lare Krebs- und Stammzellforschung am Fachbereich Biowissen-schaften der Universität Salzburg leitet. CRISPR/Cas9 Methoden finden in der Tumorforschung am Stand-ort Salzburg u.a. Verwendungen in der funktionellen Analyse von Krebsgenen und der Entdeckung neuer medikamentöser Zielmol-eküle für die Entwicklung verbesserter Krebstherapien.

Moderation: Univ. Prof. Dr Christian Huber, Fachbereich für Biowissenschaften

    During games when there are no fans in local football stadiums, deep acoustic insights into the inner workings of coaches can clearly be heard in TV broadcasts, due to the lack of background noise.Nevertheless, emotional outbursts and arguments among players and coaches have decreased considerably overall, in corona-related “behind closed door matches". Salzburg researchers calculated this using the example of games at FC Red Bull Salzburg. In contrast, more goals were scored across Austria.

    The new edition of the journal for practical philosophy is now online, with its finger on the pulse is also takes into account one topic that is shaping us like no other:the Corona pandemic. It is one of the two main focuses of the issue and its considerable scope not only reflects the importance of this topic, but also the real need to reflect philosophically and ethically on the diverse consequences of this pandemic.
    With the PLUS Talk, a new form of communication was introduced to the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg in 2020. Within the framework of this format members of the rectorate discuss certain key issues with employees of the PLUS, students and public representatives. The discussions take place LIVE and offer participants the opportunity to ask questions on current topics.
    After talks with the ministry and intensive consultation with the deans, the rectorate of the Paris Lodron University of Salzburg has decided that exams should generally only be conducted online at the moment. The following points apply here:
    INTERDISCIPLINARY CONGRESS under the leadership of Reinhard Heinisch, Reinhard Klaushofer, Christoph Kühberger and Margit Reiter
    10 am /Online-Matinee with lecture and discussion „Artes“ series with Robert Brennan and Wolf-Dietrich Löhr.
    As part of the series „MUSIC & MEDICINE“ the cooperation focus group science and culture is organising another online lecture on the 3rd February 2021.
    The Law Academy at the University of Salzburg is offering three online seminars in January 2021 on the topics of an update to competition law (antitrust law and UWG) on Friday, 15 January 2021, an update to company law on Friday, 22 January 2021 and an update to warranty law on Friday, 29th January 2021.
