Getting shirty

Staff and alumni getting active for fun, fitness or fundraising this year are celebrating our 40th birthday in the process. More than 300 complimentary running shirts have been sent far and wide, featuring the anniversary logo and a new public awareness motto ‘Vom Leben lernen’ (learning from life). This campaign is being piloted in Germany, but the shirts are being sported by EMBL athletes everywhere from Blenheim Palace to San Francisco Bay.

Picture of the week

To study the effect of commonly used drugs on bacterial envelopes, EMBL scientists applied a biochemical assay using a colour reaction. The deeper the red, the stronger the disruptive effect of the drug.
