Election as an EMBO Member is a tribute to the significant contribution to the advancement of science made by each of these researchers. EMBO elects new members annually on the basis of scientific excellence.
The latest scientists to join EMBO come from 16 different countries and represent a broad cross-section of the worldwide molecular life sciences community. Forty-two of the new members are based in Europe and neighbouring countries, while eight distinguished scientists from Australia, India and the USA receive the special honour of associate membership.
"EMBO Members contribute in numerous ways to the organisation's activities and are integral to our international reputation for promoting excellence in molecular biology. We welcome these 50 exceptional scientists to the EMBO community and look forward to their input," said Hermann Bujard, EMBO Executive Director.
Once elected, EMBO Members provide scientific input to the organisation, may participate in committees that guide the execution of EMBO activities, have the opportunity to mentor young scientists and may nominate candidates for the annual membership elections. Their valuable contribution maintains the high standards of scientific excellence EMBO has upheld since its foundation in 1964.
New EMBO Members and Associate Members are invited to present on their research and to network with other EMBO Members at the 2008 EMBO Members Workshop - Frontiers of Molecular Biology to be held in Tampere, Finland from 5 to 8 September.About EMBO
Leading peer-reviewed journals - The EMBO Journal, EMBO reports and Molecular Systems Biology - span all aspects of molecular biology and reflect how science is shaping the world. EMBO-sponsored training and networking activities impact thousands of scientists every year, promoting collaboration in all areas of molecular biology - within Europe and worldwide. EMBO is renowned for the quality and funding of these programmes and activities that include EMBO Courses & Workshops, EMBO Long-and Short-term Fellowships, the EMBO Young Investigator Programme, the EMBO Science & Society Programme, EMBO Installation Grants and EMBO Women in Science.
Annual awards, such as the EMBO Gold Medal and the EMBO Award for Communication in the Life Sciences, recognise significant contributions of European researchers to the advancement of science.
