Chair of the Board of the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences Vienna, President of the Austrian Science Fund (1974–1982), Rector of the University of Vienna (1983–1985), President of the Austria Academy of Sciences (1985–1987), Minister for Science and Research (1987–1989)

“Molecular medicine has been well on the way, from the first sequencing of a protein, insulin, and from the original modeling of DNA structure, some 50 years ago, to present-day molecule-based diagnostics and therapeutics. Yet the enormous potential that this basic biomedical research bears for medicine still has to come to full fruition.

CeMM has been established and shaped at the right time and in the right place: it has every chance and it has already shown to contribute substantially to the ongoing biomedical progress: gaining relevant molecular insights and helping to translate them into new and improved methods of prophylactic and clinical medicine.

May civil society and polity amply support this promising and salutary endeavor.”
