What we have to offer

EMBL was set up in order to promote molecular biology across Europe, and to provide an attractive alternative to the United States as a workplace for Europe’s leading young molecular biologists.

The cornerstones of EMBL’s mission are to:
- perform basic research in molecular biology;
- train scientists, students and visitors at all levels;
- offer vital services to scientists in the member states;
- develop new instruments and methods;
- actively engage in technology transfer;
- and to integrate European life science research.
