The CeMM Scientific Director and I were PhD students together at the IMP in the late eighties. Science was a blast in those days and we created a culture of serious work and fun that has continued at the IMP over the decades and permeated the new institutions that grew around it. Among these‘IMP buds’, CeMM is special. CeMM is the center of translational medicine in Vienna.‘Bench to bedside’ is realized there every day, impacting diagnosis and treatment. Keep up the good work and stay special!
