Two IMBA group leaders are selected for the EMBO Young Investigators Programme

Kikuë Tachibana-Konwalski and Stefan Ameres, both group leaders at IMBA, passed the highly competitive annual selection to join the prestigious EMBO Young Investigator programme. This programme comprises a three-year tenure in which fellows receive a range of financial and practical benefits, to help them realize their potential as world-class researchers. EMBO Young Investigators, or “YIPs” receive extensive support for professional interactions and other career development for themselves and their labs. They benefit from a vibrant and broad network of over 450 scientists, made up of current and former Young Investigators, and recipients of an EMBO Installation Grant.

The Vienna Biocenter in the third district of Vienna has established itself as the premier location for life sciences in Central Europe and is a world-leading international bio-medical research center.
