Sebastian will join a network of 135 current ‘Young Investigators’, 390 former members, and 1900 regular EMBO members. As part of the program, EMBO Young Investigators receive funding for research visits, joint group meetings, and for attending or organizing scientific meetings. Career development activities include mentorship by an EMBO member and training via the EMBO Lab Leadership course. Investigators also have access to the core facilities at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany and take part in the annual EMBO Young Investigators meeting. “I look forward to joining a vibrant and scientifically excellent community, and to interact with scientists working on different questions, with different approaches and model organisms,” says Sebastian. “I see the networking activities of the program as an opportunity to start collaborations and broaden my horizons for the benefit of my own research”.
