Trip preparations

I hope all the LSAMP students are gearing up for a fabulous trip to Austria. By now, you all should have received some communication from your mentor lab, perhaps with some pre-reading. If you are loking for travel guides/language review, check out Borders or Amazon. also has content you can download to your mobile device, such as an iPod or your laptop.

Your fearless leader will be departing a bit ahead of you, next week. I am on twitter - are you?

You may wish to explore the Austrian rail system as you plan your excursions. The railways are dense across the country, and provide relative inexpensive means of transport, particulatly with a pass.


  1. I have not heard anything from my mentor Dr. Mag. Gottfried J. Baier, Department for Medical Genetics, Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology. Was I supposed to hear from him or his group? I have looked up some of his research but I am only able to view abstracts.

  2. I am working to get this information before i leave, and hopefully before you depart on the 29th.

  3. Trains trains trains. Bring a photo ID with you. If under 25, you can purchase a Forteils card, the price which pays for itself after one way Innsbruck to Vienna. The Forteils card provides you 50% discount on rail tickets. There are also group discounts.
