The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) has elected Molecular Biophysics and Integrated Bioimaging (MBIB) senior faculty scientist Eva Nogales as an associate member. The organization of more than 1,800 leading researchers promotes excellence in the life sciences in Europe and beyond.
Nogales, who is also a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) investigator and professor at UC Berkeley, is among 56 new members and associate members EMBO will formally welcome at the annual meeting in Heidelberg, Germany, in October 2019.
“EMBO members are excellent scientists who conduct research at the forefront of all life science disciplines, ranging from computational models or analyses of single molecules and cellular mechanics to the study of higher-order systems in development, cognitive neuroscience, and evolution,” said EMBO director Maria Leptin.
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 research environment where scientists can achieve their best work. Members actively participate in the execution of the organization’s initiatives by serving on Council, committees, and editorial boards; by evaluating applications for EMBO funding; by mentoring young scientists; and by providing suggestions and feedback on activities.
