At EMBL Barcelona, biologists, physicists and computer scientists work together to understand and simulate the multi-scale connections between genes, cells and tissues. On 15 October, EMBL Barcelona hosted its Inauguration Symposium to officially introduce itself to the city. At this event, journalists, politicians and scientists got the chance to peek inside EMBL Barcelona’s new lab spaces and meet the researchers. Donald Ingber, the founding director of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, also gave a keynote lecture which inspired visitors and researchers alike. Among the most recent recruits to EMBL’s sixth and newest site are Jim Swoger, Head of the Mesoscopic Imaging Facility, and group leaders Miki Ebisuya and Vikas Trivedi.
