EMBL expands to Australia

Today, delegates representing the 19 member states of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) offered Australia associate membership in EMBLs international community. The membership is planned to start officially in January 2008 and will initially last for seven years.

EMBL is a central hub for molecular biology in Europe, said Australias Minister for Education Science and Training, the Hon Julie Bishop MP. Australias associate membership will facilitate interaction between the Australian and European molecular biology communities and will encourage the exchange of scientists between the two continents. Combining their complementary expertise will benefit both Australian science and research at EMBL.

Collaborations and exchange will occur between the five European sites of EMBL and leading Australian research institutions. Monash University, The University of Western Australia, The University of Queensland, The University of Sydney and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) all actively worked with the Commonwealth Government in establishing Australias associate membership, and have indicated their interest in engaging in collaborative activities with EMBL.

Through its associate membership Australia will contribute to the diverse activities at EMBL by sending early-career scientists to join EMBL as faculty and postdoctoral and predoctoral fellows, while EMBL will share with Australian institutions its world-renowned expertise in researcher training and research infrastructure development.

Australia is a highly valuable addition to EMBL and we are very pleased to welcome it as our first associate member, said Iain Mattaj, EMBLs Director General. In recent years Australia has become a central player in the landscape of molecular biology. With its special expertise, for example in the fields of medical epidemiology and stem cell research, it will be an excellent complement to EMBLs focus o
