Austria: Behind the scenes of life sciences – impressions I

I am absolutely delighted about how open most bioscientists are in supporting my project. They take the time to guide me through their offices, training spaces and labs and share the content and enthousiasm for their work although I can still not give any details about the outcome of mine. But I am getting more and more aware that the constitutive character of evolution theory for our understanding of the living nature that surrounds us is impressively reflected in the diversity of biosciences and their research methods.

PS: I was just accepted by Kone Foundation for a stay at the Saari Residence in Finland in January and February 2014 to further evaluate and implement the knowledge and footage collected for my project on biosciences in Graz.
