Celebrating 10 years of EMBO Molecular Medicine


EMBO at BASEL LIFE focuses on current and emerging topics in the field of molecular medicine, whilst fulfilling its mission of promoting excellence in the life sciences to a wide audience. Speaking on behalf of EMBO Press, Senior Editor Celine Carret says: “This year at EMBO at BASEL LIFE, the scientific open-access journal EMBO Molecular Medicine will be celebrating its 10th anniversary, with keynote lectures from Vas Narasimhan (Novartis, CH), Michal Schwartz (Weizmann Institute of Science, IS) and Kári Stefánsson (deCode Genetics, IC). EMBO owes these high-profile lectures in no small part to the collaboration with its key scientific organisers: Philippe Sansonetti (Chief Editor EMBO Molecular Medicine), Geneviève Almouzni, Michael Hall, Jan Korbel, and Caetano Reis e Sousa.”

This year’s programme will also feature lectures from the Louis-Jeantet prize winners Luigi Naldini (San Raffaele University School of Medicine, IT) and Botond Roska (Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research, CH).

In the session celebrating 10 years of EMBO Molecular Medicine (EMM), chaired by Chief Editor Philippe Sansonetti and by Senior Editor Celine Carret, the EMM lecture will be delivered by Bart de Strooper (VIB Center for Brain & Disease Research, UK Dementia Research Institute, Leuven, BE).
