Since its inception as an independent University in 2004, the Medical University of Innsbruck (MUI) (https://www.i-med.ac.at/) is a young and modern university with a long tradition. With about 3,000 students and over 1,400 employees, MUI is the most important institution for medical research and education in Western Austria and the only institution in Austria offering a Master course in Molecular Medicine.
MUI´s strength lies in the fields of basic and translational research, with our research focusing on four strategic areas: (i) Neuroscience, (ii) Infectiology, Immunology & Transplant, (iii) Oncology, and (iv) Genetics, Epigenetics & Genomics.
The research administration is organized in a de-centralized way. The Research and Innovation Service has a coordinating function and works closely together with the HR department (employment of personal in projects), the financial department (financial administration and reporting) and the legal services (contractual issues).
