Welcome to EMBL Australia
In 2008 Australia became an associate member of EMBL, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Europe’s flagship for the life sciences.
Membership gives Australia the opportunity to internationalise our life science research: introducing our best young researchers to new networks and tools for life sciences. and enables Australia to create highly competitive research teams networked across the nation and with Europe.
EMBL Australia was created to maximise the benefits of Australia’s associate membership of EMBL and does so via research projects, infrastructure and training programs across Australia, embedding powerful new enabling tools such as bioinformatics and systems biology in Australian life science.
EMBL Australia plans to work with its members and others to create a total of 18 to 20 research groups around Australia – offering hosting institutions access to the scientific excellence and scientific governance which drives EMBL and EMBL Australia.
