Support EMBL

EMBL Anniversary Fund


Welcome to the celebration of a remarkable milestone – the 50th anniversary of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory.

As we reflect on EMBL’s ground-breaking achievements and advancements in molecular biology over the past half-century and the many global leaders trained at EMBL, we invite you to be a part of shaping the future. 

The core of EMBL’s work is funded by member state contributions and grants. With private support, we can go even further. Philanthropy has already kickstarted research projects seeking novel solutions for environmental challenges, enabled hundreds of scientists from around the world to take part in our training, promoted the advancement of women in science and helped ignite a passion for the life sciences in young learners. 

By making a donation to the EMBL 50th Anniversary Fund, you will empower us to embark on new initiatives, support cutting-edge research and provide opportunities for the next generation of scientists to thrive. 

Whether you are an EMBL alumna or alumnus, a member of the scientific community, or someone passionate about advancing scientific knowledge for the benefit of human and planetary health, your generosity – whatever amount you choose to give – will have a lasting impact on science and society.
