HCEMM-EMBL Partnership

About EMBL

EMBL is Europe’s leading laboratory for the life sciences. Established in 1974 as an intergovernmental organisation, EMBL is supported by over 20 member states. EMBL performs fundamental research in molecular biology, studying the story of life. The institute offers services to the scientific community, trains the next generation of scientists, and strives to integrate the life sciences across Europe. EMBL is international, innovative, and interdisciplinary. Its more than 1700 staff, from over 80 countries, operate across six sites in Barcelona (Spain), Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Heidelberg (Germany), Hinxton (UK), and Rome (Italy). EMBL scientists work in independent groups and conduct research and offer services in all areas of molecular biology. EMBL research drives the development of new technology and methods in the life sciences. The institute works to transfer this knowledge for the benefit of society.

HCEMM-EMBL Partnership

HCEMM is considered first and foremost by the partnership with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the world’s leading research institutions, and Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences.

HCEMM-EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine is EMBL’s fifth remote partnership, a partnership outside the countries where EMBL has its six sites, and its first in Central Europe. The mission of HCEMM is to focus on research in the field of cardiovascular, tumour and inflammatory disease especially affecting older generations and thereby bridging basic to translational research. HCEMM-EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine is inspired by the desire of EMBL and its member state Hungary to make sure that EMBL’s research strategy and operational model are implemented on national level. It comprises not only an inter-institutional research initiative, but also serves to secure better integration and participation of national scientific communities into EMBL’s activities, and opportunity for HCEMM to benefit from the EMBL model.

As part of the HCEMM-EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine, HCEMM follows the EMBL operational model and principles aiming at scientific excellence and establishing mechanisms for independent, regular scientific evaluation of research activities, scientific integrity and good scientific practice, as well as commitment to international recruitment and significant levels of staff turnover.
