EMBO 2001 golden medal goes to Matthew Freeman

October 10, 2001

The EMBO gold medal highlights the quality of European molecular biology performed by young research scientists and is awarded annually to a scientist who is under 40 years of age. The EMBO Medal is an honour, which has been awarded to many illustrious recipients in the past. In this way the quality work of young European scientists is brought to the attention of a larger world-wide audience and serves to act as a role model for scientists in Europe and as an indicator of the standards which are achieved by European scientists.

The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) was established in 1964, by leading scientists in the field. The aim of the organization is to promote molecular biology studies in Europe. Subsidiary to that general aim are concepts such as the development of a strong trans-national approach to molecular biology, the identification of measures that can assist in the training of scientists in this area and the emphasis on scientific criteria for all of its activities.

EMBO's activities are supported by the European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC). Member states are: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and United Kingdom
