Meet some of our alumni


Katharina Sonnen

Group leader, The Hubrecht Institute, The Netherlands

I enjoyed the scientific culture at EMBL, the focus on science and the exciting scientific discussions a lot. Being at EMBL you get into contact with advanced, state-of-the art or not-yet state-of-the-art technology. This allows you to wonder and test how this technology might be useful for your own project.


Lucas Chaible

Research Scientist, iTeos Therapeutics, Belgium

EMBL provided me with the chance to have a scientific experience abroad working with high level scientists. This opportunity allowed me to grow professionally, developing new skills such as the ability to work in an interdisciplinary/multicultural team and improved my problem solving skills in different areas.

I have never experienced any research institution where scientists and technical staff are so open to discuss your research and generous in offering their help.
