Date:10/20/2011

HEIDELBERG, GERMANY, 20 OCTOBER 2011 EMBO today acknowledges the outstanding scientific contribution of 46 life scientists from 14 countries by awarding them life-long EMBO membership.

Election to EMBO membership is recognition of the commitment to research excellence and the exceptional achievements made by a life scientist. The new EMBO Members join the ranks of 1,500 of the best researchers in Europe and around the world. They are leaders in their research fields and communities.

This year EMBO acknowledges 43 European scientists as EMBO Members and three scientists from the USA as Associate Members. The new members include 11 female scientists and the first EMBO Member from Estonia.

"We are happy to welcome the new EMBO Members into the EMBO community and look forward to the infusion of knowledge that they bring," said EMBO Director Maria Leptin.

EMBO Members apply their expertise and insight to select the many talented scientists EMBO support each year to do the best science. As a result, EMBO Members collectively influence the future directions of life science and strengthen research communities across Europe.

By encouraging cross-border interactions, EMBO Members ensure that Europe is a unified community of excellence where top-level life science thrives.

The 46 scientists recognized by EMBO represent a vivid cross-section of the life sciences from molecular biology and plant sciences, to neuroscience, computational neurobiology and cellular immunology.
