"The newly elected EMBO Young Investigators have the potential to be tomorrow's life science leaders," says Gerlind Wallon, EMBO Deputy Director and Manager of the Young Investigator Programme. “The status of Young Investigator offers a level of recognition that brings immediate benefits to scientists at an early stage of their careers.”

Financial support includes 15,000 euros per year for three years directly from the member state where the laboratories of the scientists are located. The researchers receive a range of benefits to help start their first independent research laboratories. Laboratory management and non-scientific skills training as well as PhD courses offer the young group leaders and their students the chance to develop professional skills. The scientists also receive funding for themselves and their group members to attend conferences and access to core facilities at EMBL.
