European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)

Bundesland: Baden-Württemberg

Stadt: Heidelberg

AGs: 13



The European Molecular Biology Laboratory is an inter­na­tio­nally renowned research insti­tution, with stations in Germany (Heidelberg and Hamburg), the United Kingdom (Hinxton), France (Grenoble) and Italy (Montero­tondo). Heidelberg serves as EMBL’s headquarters, hosting a range of groups with a broad diversity of research interests, exploring new frontiers in basic molecular biology. EMBL Heidelberg has an extensive and growing bioin­for­matics community: currently more than 40% of resear­chers at the laboratory spend the majority of their time on compu­ta­tional work. Colla­bo­ration between these compu­ta­tional scien­tists and those at the bench is one of the key strengths of EMBL Heidelberg. It encou­rages the develo­pment of new research methods, innovation in new technology and software, and the estab­lishment of resources and services for the wider scien­tific community. Scien­tific partner­ships are formed between different research groups and across EMBL outsta­tions and other leading insti­tu­tions. This pioneering approach can have great impact in trans­la­tional research, such as in the foundation of the Molecular Medicine Partnership Unit (MMP), which connects molecular research directly with medicine.
