“Being an EMBL alumnus means sharing the benefits of my stay at EMBL and its existence with the scientific community at home.”

Melina Schuh

“My time at EMBL has shaped my scientific career. High quality, collaborative and ambitious research are hallmarks of science at EMBL. I have implemented these principles of research in my own lab as well.” 


The EMBL Alumni Relations programme is built to advance EMBL and the relevance of life sciences research in the scientific community and society at large, by fostering connections between the laboratory, its member states, current EMBL staff, EMBL alumni and the public through EMBL’s engaged, global alumni community.
