BioToP

BioToP at BOKU Vienna

 

BioToP is an International PhD Program of  BOKU - University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria.

BOKU has established the Vienna Institute of BioTechnology (VIBT) that integrates the Departments of Applied Genetics and Cell Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Food Sciences and Technology, and Nanobiotechnology, and has a close association with the Department of Material Sciences and Process Engineering. The spectrum of activities ranges from basic research to the development of viable technologies. With its integration of biosciences, engineering sciences, business and management studies the VIBT is designed as a technology-oriented supplement to the pure science-oriented biotechnology centres.

All laboratories of BioToP are located at VIBT within three adjacent buildings, thus allowing regular interactions between all faculty members and students.
