Next year marks the 60th anniversary of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). EMBO funds researchers as well as conferences, training and networking activities to help create an environment in which scientists can excel. Now will be a time to celebrate, to reflect on past achievements and challenges, and also to look ahead to the future of the life sciences and the role EMBO will play in it. Professor and EMBO Director Fiona Watt will open this unique meeting and then we will hear the perspectives of EMBO postdocs and members. This meeting is open to all wanting to connect to the EMBO community. Professor Watt is also attending the BioCity Symposium, where she will talk about “exploring stem cell dynamics in human skin”.
