EMBL’s research sites are closed to external visitors and most staff are working from home – when able to do so. The safety of our staff, their families, our research colleagues, and our local communities is of paramount importance. Small teams are regularly visiting our sites for essential activity including our data services, support for our animal facilities and maintenance of core equipment.

As Europe’s leading life sciences institution, EMBL is also supporting the global research and response effort to the coronavirus pandemic.
