“The Vienna Science Ball is a great new tradition that brings scientists from all fields together. I think it’s particularly nice that the ‘scientific community’ has a special reason to meet outside of conferences. Just as spectacular ball nights are inextricably linked with Vienna, internationality, health and sustainability are part of Vetmeduni Vienna. To ensure that all ball guests can enjoy their Schnitzel Roll and Sacher Sausages, we advocate using innovative livestock medicine for healthy food. ”

Andrea Ladinig is the head of the University Clinic for Swine at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna since August 2017. She is specialized on the PRRS virus, which is considered one of the most significant viral diseases of pigs and which currently causes high losses in pig production.
