The Young Investigator database lists all current and former EMBO Young Investigators. Please browse the database to find out more about their research. You can also search by keyword to find a Young Investigator working in a particular area.


Current EMBO Young Investigators are also featured in the EMBO communities’ resource at people.embo.org.


If you would like to invite a Young Investigator as a speaker and plan to apply for a Young Investigator Lecture Grant to support their talk, please consult the list of Young Investigators eligible for lecture grants in 2017, sorted by EMBO subject area.


A separate database of Installation Grantees is linked from the Installation Grant webpages.
