Prof. Dr. Stephan Grill elected as EMBO Member



BIOTEC research group leader Prof. Dr. Stephan Grill was just elected to the "European Molecular Biology Organization" (EMBO) as a new member. EMBO elects new members annually in recognition of their excellent contributions to scientific understanding. Their selection is a tribute to their research and achievements. This prestigious honor again demonstrates the high performance and quality of BIOTEC researchers.

"Election to the EMBO Membership is recognition of research excellence, and I am pleased to welcome so many great scientists to our organization," says EMBO Director Maria Leptin. She continues: "We received more nominations than ever before during this election cycle, which pays tribute to the strength and diversity of the European life sciences. Drawing on our new members' expertise and insight will be invaluable in helping EMBO to deliver and strengthen its programs and activities in the years to come."

"To be elected as an EMBO member is a great honor and recognition. This selection is a tribute to the strengths of the research environment we have at BIOTEC and TU Dresden, and a reflection of the work we do here", says Prof. Grill.

EMBO is an organization of more than 1700 leading researchers world-wide, including 84 nobel laureates, that promotes excellence in the life sciences. The major goals of EMBO 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.
