European Molecular Biology Organization
|Motto||excellence in the life sciences|
The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) is an organization of life scientists. Since 1964, scientists have been elected annually as members of EMBO based on excellence in research. There are more than 1600 Members of the European Molecular Biology Organization, 76 of whom (4.75%) have received the Nobel Prize. EMBO is also founding member of the Initiative for Science in Europe.
With over 80 meetings attracting more than 6,000 participants every year, EMBO offers the largest number of scientific training events in Europe.
EMBO publishes four peer-reviewed journals: The EMBO Journal, EMBO Reports, Molecular Systems Biology and EMBO Molecular Medicine. These span a broad spectrum of molecular biology topics and reflect how science is changing the world.
EMBO promotes Europe as a research location to foreign researchers, and increases awareness of options for research and training in the life sciences in Europe. This strengthens ties with scientific communities worldwide.
Annually awarded, the EMBO Gold Medal recognises significant contributions of European researchers to the advancement of science.
