KLI Symposium on Gregor J. Mendel
Organized by Barbara Fischer, Lynn Chiu, Philipp Mittroecker (University of Vienna)

Mendel's Legacy in Science and Society:
history, biology, science education, medicine, and society


On Gregor Johann Mendel's 200th anniversary, a public symposium will be hosted at the KLI to reflect on his work and legacy. The long-reaching impact of Mendel's scientific work and different interpretations of "Mendelism" go beyond the academic discipline of genetics. Our invited speakers will share their reflections on Mendel in the history of science, in the biological sciences, in the education and communication of science, as well as in medicine and society. The symposium is organized by the University of Vienna and will take place in person with a live-stream.

You can now register to attend the symposium online (for free) here.

Dates: October 13-14th, 2022
Time: 9:30-17:00 (CEST)
Location: The KLI, Martinstrasse 12, 3400 Klosterneuburg
