With 27 member states, laboratories at six sites across Europe and
thousands of scientists and engineers working together, the
European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is a powerhouse of
biological expertise. EMBL is an intergovernmental organisation,
headquartered in Heidelberg, and was founded in 1974 with the
mission of promoting molecular biology research in Europe, training
young scientists, and developing new technologies.
EMBL currently employs 1800 people in Barcelona, Grenoble,
Hamburg, Heidelberg, Hinxton (near Cambridge), and Rome.
Publishing hundreds of research articles and hosting dozens of
conferences every year, EMBL is driving visionary fundamental
research, and training Europe's future scientific talent.
