    It is with great sadness that the ANA learned about the recent passing of Hans Tuppy (*22 July 1924, Vienna – †24 April 2024).

    Hans Tuppy was an outstanding figure in Austria’s academia. With the prospects of a brilliant academic career, he chose to serve the academic world in a truly altruistic manner. He held various prestigious positions: Dean of the Medical Faculty (1970-72), Rector of the University of Vienna and President of the Rectors' Conference (1983-85), President of the Austrian Science Fund (1974-82), President of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (1985-87), and Minister for Science and Research (1987-89). In its obituary, the IMP acknowledged Hans Tuppy for his role in “providing crucial support for the development of IMP and the Vienna BioCenter.” On the occasion of his 90th birthday, his student Peter Palese delivered a touching speech. Despite all the positions he held, he was a wonderful, lovely person with a curious, open mind who made you feel like a colleague. His occasional critical remarks always came with a humorous, chuckling smile.

    I remember Hans Tuppy very well. He delivered brilliant lectures in chemistry and biochemistry (unfortunately, very little molecular biology at the time), which were always packed with us, the students. I passed my “Rigorosum” with distinction, even though I somehow messed up my practical exam by not getting the expected results. He did not mind, as I could somehow prove that I understood the principle.

    At the 2016 Meeting at the ISTA, ANA awarded Hans Tuppy its Honorary Membership. He deeply regretted that he could not attend in person. Keeping his generosity and kindness in our hearts, we will miss him greatly.

    Congratulations to Valeria Mussetto!

    winner of the ANA Best Thesis Award 2024

    Her PhD work in Jürgen Sandkühler’s lab at the Center for Brain Research in Vienna aimed at understanding the neurobiological substrates of the emotional components of pain. In particular, she focused on the lateral parabrachial nucleus, a brainstem center that is crucial for pain aversion, and investigated how neuro-glial transmission can be modulated in this area.

    She discovered two novel forms of synaptic plasticity at glutamatergic synapses triggered by opioid administration, identifying the parabrachial nucleus as a new site of opioid-induced neuronal adaptations and describing the first direct evidence of plasticity in this structure. Additionally, Valeria’s work shed light into the largely unexplored roles of parabrachial glial cells, expanding our understanding of regional variability in neuro-immuno-glial networks in the brain and providing insights into the differential contribution of glia to specific aspects of pathological pain.

    Valeria’s findings have significant implications for our understanding of opioid abuse and chronic pain mechanisms and can open new avenues for the treatment of these conditions. Details of her findings can be found on JPain and Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience.

    On behalf of the meeting organizers, we would like to invite you to the 3rd Locus Coeruleus meeting in Innsbruck

    About the meeting:

    The Locus Coeruleus Meeting is a small and quite diverse meeting that tries to understand the early vulnerability of the locus coeruleus and other neuromodulatory nuclei in aging and neurodegenerative conditions.

    About the participants: 

    The meeting aims to bring together researchers with a background in clinical research on neurodegenerative conditions, cognitive neuroscience, MRI Physics, neuroscience in animal models, and other relevant disciplines with an interest in neuromodulatory systems and in particular the noradrenergic locus coeruleus in health and disease. 

    Where and when:

    The meeting will take place at the Grillhof in Innsbruck from the 9th to the 11th of September 2024.


    Registration will be open until the 15th of April 2024

    Please do not hesitate to email us with any questions

    email: LCMeeting2024'at'

      We look forward to welcoming you at our 3rd Locus Coeruleus Meeting!

    Hello, FENS Forum 2024 participants!

    The SHSC team is thrilled to invite you to join our exclusive video competition, where you can share your scientific journey in a captivating video. Dive into the world of visual storytelling with a 20-30-second video clip tailored to your scientific journey. Whether you're showcasing the magic of Live Cell Imaging or giving us a glimpse into your daily life.

    The three winners will earn a € 300 reward and exclusive SHSC merchandise!

    How to participate:

    • Exclusively for FENS Forum 2024 participants who consider themselves young scientists
    • The Video/Clip should be in landscape format and last c.a. 20-30 seconds, with the following criteria:
    • 20-30 seconds if it shows an experiment (e.g.: Live Cell Imaging)
    • up to 30 seconds if it shows a “Day in My Life as Scientist”
    • up to 30 seconds if it shows the production and/or the presentation of your Forum poster
    • You may apply AI to complement your content. However, you have to clearly indicate where you used it (submission form)
    • Ensure that the music you intend to use is copyright-free if you plan to incorporate it.
    • Please add your personal data by filling out this form
    • Please keep it classy! Avoid explicit content, such as dissection and animal experiments, which will not be admitted.
    • The three winners will be selected by the SHSC, but we know that there will be many more wonderful clips. So, all the participants submitting a significant contribution will receive a document honouring their work.

    Submission opens April 1 and ends June 1, 2024
