KLI Colloquia are informal, public talks that are followed by extensive dissussions. Speakers are KLI fellows or visiting researchers who are interested in presenting their work to an interdisciplinary audience and discussing it in a wider research context. We offer three types of talks:
1. Current Research Talks. KLI fellows or visiting researchers present and discuss their most recent research with the KLI fellows and the Vienna scientific community.
2. Future Research Talks. Visiting researchers present and discuss future projects and ideas togehter with the KLI fellows and the Vienna scientific community.
3. Professional Developmental Talks. Experts about research grants and applications at the Austrian and European levels present career opportunities and strategies to late-PhD and post-doctoral researchers.
- The presentation language is English.
- If you are interested in presenting your current or future work at the KLI, please contact the Scientific Director or the Executive Manager.

Ever increasing amounts of DNA sequence-based “cancer mutation” data have added much to our understanding of the human genome over the past decade. However, whereas detailed sequencing has helped delineate new pathways and has led to some progress in specific cancer types, this has not delivered a real breakthrough in our understanding of cancer. We believe it is time to re-assess some of the scientific concepts that underpin current mainstream cancer research, such as the “Somatic Mutation Theory” of cancer in light of solid experimental data and alternative theoretical concepts that have accumulated over several decades in different areas of cell and cancer biology as well as big data analysis methodologies. The workshop is anticipated to start the process of integrating these insights into a new framework of “a revised theory of cancer.”
The Workshop is dedicated to the memory of Susan Lindquist (Whitehead Institute, MIT) and George Klein (Karolinska Institute, Sweden), two brilliant and amazingly successful scientists who have embraced ‘a revised theory of cancer’ late in their scientific careers.
