EMBC celebrates 50 years of funding excellence in the life sciences


Heidelberg, 3 July 2019 – Delegates, friends, partners, colleagues, and collaborators came together on 24 June 2019 for a symposium celebrating the 50th anniversary of the European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC). The EMBC is an international and independent funding body that was set up in 1969 to provide stable finances for EMBO to carry out its activities. The event allowed participants to reflect on EMBC’s specific contributions to bringing life science research onto international policy agendas, as well as exploring challenges and opportunities ahead.
