EMBO is an organisation of more than 1700 leading researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences. The major goals of the organization are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a European research environment where scientists can achieve their best work. EMBO helps young scientists to advance their research, promote their international reputations and ensure their mobility. Courses, workshops, conferences and EMBO Press publications disseminate the latest research and offer training in techniques to maintain high standards of excellence in research practice. EMBO helps to shape science policy by seeking input and feedback from our community and by following closely the trends in science in Europe.
EMBL is one of the world’s leading research institutions, and Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences.
All biomedical scientists including post-graduate and post-doctoral working at the University of Malta will benefit from both EMBO and EMBL memberships.
