Enthusiastic scientists from many fields of biology form our team. Microbiologists, ecologists, botanists, zoologists, biotechnologists, doctors and educators are committed to making the world of microorganisms more widely understood. They are supported by the Leopold-Franzens-Universität Innsbruck, the Medical University of Innsbruck and the University of Applied Sciences MCI. The visitors are to make big eyes and out of wonder about the world of the little ones will not come out.
