ELLS

European Learning Laboratory for the Life Sciences

Our inspiring educational experiences share the scientific discoveries of EMBL with young learners aged 10-19 years and teachers in Europe and beyond.

Insight Lectures

Since its start in 2003, the EMBL Insight Lecture series has been inspiring thousands of young learners from across the world. Each year, a senior EMBL scientist presents their research on a cutting-edge topic in the life sciences in a lecture specifically designed for a secondary school student audience.

We invite young learners aged 16 to 19 to attend the virtual event with their school classes or as individuals.

Recordings of the lectures are available on our website. The lectures cover a wide range of life sciences topics, from genomics and neuroscience, to ocean diversity, advances in light microscopy and the study of macromolecules.

Upcoming lecture

In the EMBL Insight Lecture 2021, Dr. Anna Kreshuk will introduce the field of computer vision and discuss how scientists profit from its recent breakthroughs in the area of modern microscopy. The lecture will use examples of cells, hearts and worms to illustrate how the algorithms and tools developed by Anna’s research team have revealed new insights into biology.
