EMBO welcomes 55 leading life scientists as members

Heidelberg, Germany, 9 May 2012 Fifty-five life scientists from Europe and around the world were today recognised by EMBO for their excellence in research. Forty-eight of the researchers are from Europe and neighbouring countries while seven scientists from Argentina, Australia, South Korea and the United States join as Associate Members. In total, EMBO membership now comprises almost 1,550 life scientists in the international scientific community.

EMBO elects new members annually on the basis of scientific excellence. The new members represent a broad cross-section of the life sciences. The latest scientists to join the group come from 17 different countries and include 13 female scientists recognized for their contributions to life science research.

The new nominees include the first ever Associate Members in South Korea and Argentina. "Our members are the basis for the excellent international reputation of EMBO and its increasingly global orientation. We welcome this group of exceptional scientists and look forward to their fresh input and ideas," said EMBO Director Maria Leptin.

The selected researchers will help shape the direction of the life sciences in Europe and beyond by their involvement with the activities of the organization. EMBO Members provide scientific input such as acting on advisory editorial boards of the four scientific journals of the organization, serving on selection committees for EMBO Programmes and giving general advice to the scientific community.

A list of all new EMBO Members and Associate Members accompanies this announcement.
