Long Night of Research 2024 – An Evening of Innovation and Collaboration in Pediatric Cancer Research

The Long Night of Research 2024 was a great success, and we are thrilled with the high turnout of visitors. Under the theme “Innovation through Collaboration,” we were able to introduce numerous interested individuals to the fascinating world of pediatric cancer research.

On May 24, St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute opened its doors and offered exciting insights into the work of our scientists from 5 PM to 11 PM. The diverse program, part of the Medical University of Vienna’s medical research mile, captivated visitors of all ages.

This year, a special focus was on the possibilities of modern technologies and artificial intelligence in pediatric cancer research. At our research stations, guests received fascinating insights into new cellular and computational models, as well as innovative therapies in clinical trials. The presentations and interactive stations, covering topics from tumor modeling to microscopy in research and diagnostics, were very well received.

We are incredibly pleased that we were able to welcome nearly 700 visitors this evening, and we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all participants, visitors, and staff for making this evening so exciting and successful. Your enthusiasm and interest in our work made the Long Night of Research 2024 an unforgettable event.
