Young Investigator Meeting 2017


17-19 May 2017


The annual EMBO Young Investigator Meeting provides members of the programme with a forum to network. Young Investigators present their research, and informal discussions offer an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences.



The meeting comprises short talks from all attendees, lots of time for networking, and a dedicated session to learn more about the Young Investigator Programme and provide input on its activities. Optional training workshops will take place on the morning of 17 May.



The meeting will take place at the EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany.

EMBL, Meyerhofstr. 1, D-69117 Heidelberg



All current and former EMBO Young Investigators and EMBO Installation Grantees are invited to participate. In addition, EMBL group leaders are welcome to attend.
