Prof. Richard Moriggl (PhD)

Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics, University of Veterinary Medicine, A-1210 Vienna, Austria

Dr. Moriggl did his undergraduate study in Germany and France. He studied biotechnology in Germany and finished his PhD in 1997, working on cytokine signaling with Dr. Groner at the Friedrich Miescher Institute in Basel, Switzerland and at the Institute of Experimental Cancer Research in Freiburg, Germany. After a 4 year postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Ihle at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, USA, in the area of immunology, he joined Dr. Beug at the Institute for Molecular Pathology in Vienna for a second postdoc to work on leukemia and stress hormone receptor signalling for another 5 years.

Dr. Moriggl served as the director of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Cancer Research for 14 years, heading up to six research groups that all got tenure tracked with professorships and integrated into medical research performing universities in Austria.

His current appointment with the University of Veterinary Medicine involves the steering of the Unit for Functional Cancer Genomics with two subgroups headed by Dr. Heidi Neubauer and Dr. Anna Orlova, all integrated within the Institute of Animal Breeding and Genetics headed by Dr. Mathias Müller. The Moriggl group has largely third-party grant funded employees and runs researchers organized in smaller teams in a nice and stimulating scientific atmosphere, further embedded with many national and international collaboration partners.
