Visit to Haus des Meeres
20 Jan 2018
The Pauli lab was treated to an in-depth tour of the Haus des Meeres given by the deputy director and curator, Daniel Abed-Navandi. He taught us a lot about the different species on display, and gave us a behind-the-scenes look of how the aquarium operates. Some of the cool organisms we were able to see included a poisonous cone snail species, lots of little jellyfish, and the aquarium’s thriving seahorse population.

Once upon a time at the IMP…
On the 12th of January, the Pauli lab turned the IMP into a whole new world when holding their Disney-themed beer hour. With princesses on cupcakes and a magical potion from Merlin’s cauldron, everyone gathered for the evening and enjoyed the bare necessities of life. Hakuna matata!

Xmas Scavenger Hunt of the Pauli & Obenauf Labs
13 Dec 2017
Wednesday night saw model organisms gone loose in the Museum of Natural History in Vienna. The Pauli and Obenauf labs teamed up for a Xmas Scavenger Hunt as Drosophila melanogaster, Mus musculus, Ambystoma mexicanum and Danio rerio to take a picture with the scariest animal, rebuild the IMP logo and much more. Thanks to Manuela Steurer for the great questions that made this such a memorable and fun event!
Visit of students from Rosensteingasse

Pauli Lab Retreat to Gustav’s Castle
12 Aug 2017
