LocationHeidelberg, Germany
Website

As of 2018, 87 EMBO Members and Associate Members have been awarded Nobel Prizes in either Physiology or Medicine, Chemistry or Physics.[1][2][3][4] See Category:Members of the European Molecular Biology Organization for examples of EMBO members.

Nomination and election of new membersEdit

Elections for membership are held annually[5] with candidates for membership being nominated and elected exclusively by existing EMBO members,[6][7] membership cannot be applied for directly.[8][9][10][11] Three types of membership exist:

  1. EMBO Member, for scientists living (or who have lived) in a European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC) Member State[12]
  2. EMBO Associate Member, for scientists living outside of the EMBC Member States[12]
  3. EMBO Young Investigator[13]
