Barbara Bauder

Since gaining her Ph.D. the biologist is fascinated by Science and Higher Education as much as by communicating complex matters in a concise and precise manner.

As Section Leader at the Institute of Pathology at the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna she stands at the forefront of science and publishes in international journals. Further education in Public Relations and Management complete her communication skills.

Furthermore, practical experience with organising large scientific meetings and professional activities in science education broaden her knowledge base.

Work at the Austrian Academy of Sciences as well as at renown retailers complete her personal profile as does her knowledge of five languages
