The Center for Molecular Medicine (CeMM) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (http://www.cemm.oeaw.ac.at) represents one of the premier flagships of biomedical research in Austria and is a member of EU-Life (http://www.eu-life.eu). CeMM provides a dynamic and highly collaborative environment which includes state-of-the-art infrastructure for 12 group leaders and approximate 180 staff representing more than 40 nationalities. CeMM is located at the campus of the Medical University of Vienna, which promotes interactions with nearby clinicians. Dr. Andreas Bergthaler`s group (http://www.bergthaler1.at) at CeMM is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and other grant agencies and is interested in the crosstalk between metabolism and inflammation during infection. Well-defined mouse models are interrogated with molecular techniques of immunology, virology and systems biology to gain insights into viral pathogenesis and inflammation.
