Leading scientists elected to EMBO ranks

EMBO elects new members annually on the basis of scientific excellence. Its membership comprises over 1,200 of the world's finest researchers. The latest scientists to join the fold come from 14 different countries and represent a broad cross-section of the molecular life sciences community. 44 of the new members are based in Europe, while five distinguished scientists from the USA and China receive the special honour of associate membership.

Frank Gannon, EMBO Executive Director said, "EMBO Members are the organisation's most valuable asset and the basis for our inter¬national reputation. This year we welcome another group of exceptional scientists to the EMBO community. I look forward to the fresh input they will bring to the organisa¬tion."

EMBO has over 1,200 members in Europe and more than 70 associate members worldwide. 43 are Nobel laureates and many more recipients of other prestigious awards. EMBO Members provide scientific input to the organisation in all of its activities. Their contribution helps to maintain the high standards of scientific excellence EMBO has upheld since its foundation.
