Applications are currently being accepted for the 2023 Vienna Biocenter Summer School. About 20 undergraduate students get the chance to collaborate with distinguished experts in a fast-paced scientific setting through the Vienna Biocenter Summer School.

The program seeks to draw bright students from all around the world, fostering an environment rich in diversity. For students interested in graduate-level studies in the biological sciences, it is the ideal preparation.
