Together with her team, Pamela Vrabl is looking for new bioactive substances against multi-resistant pathogens. In the current issue of "Wissenswert" she speaks about her work on this topic.

Ötztaler Rotmoostal in Tyrol,

Belowground organisms play critical roles in maintaining multiple ecosystem processes, including plant productivity, decomposition, and nutrient cycling. Together with an international team of researchers Sigrid Neuhauser and Martin Kirchmair investigated the microbial composition of soils worldwide. Surprising result: The diversity of living organisms in the soil is not necessarily related to the diversity of plants growing on it.

Mycology Tyrol Mini-Symposium 2017

The 1st Mycology Tyrol Minisymposium will be held on the 29th of September 2017 and will create a highly interdisciplinary scientific exchange and discussion platform on topics including Molecular Fungal Cell Biology, Fungal Physiology, Environmental Mycology, Microbial Resource Management and Clinical Mycology. Our experts will present their latest advancements in these fields and discuss novel trends.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly - Lange Nacht der Forschung 2018

Zur Langen Nacht der Forschung 2018 waren wir Mykologen der Arbeitsgruppen Zeilinger, Neuhauser, Kirchmair und Peintner (wieder einmal) ausgerückt, um das Regnum Fungi den Besuchern näherzubringen und die Kollegen vom Institut für Mikrobiologie zu verstärken. Der Titel des klassichen Italo-Western „The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” war der Aufhänger, um allen Interessierten die verschiedenen Pilze näherzubringen, die den Menschen nützen, schaden oder – sehr oft – auch „einfach nur da“ sind.
