Professor Eva Hoffmann, from the DNRF’s Center for Chromosome Stability (CCS) at the University of Copenhagen, is among this year’s new members of the research organization European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). The membership honors Professor Hoffmann, and the rest of the new members, for their successful work in the life sciences.
Professor Eva Hoffmann from the Center of Excellence CCS at the University of Copenhagen is one of the new members of EMBO 2020. The membership pays tribute to Professor Hoffmann and 62 other researchers from around the world for their contributions to research in the life sciences.
“The new members have contributed to the success of research in the life sciences in Europe and around the world. As EMBO members, they can help shape the future through EMBO’s work to support talented researchers, bring ideas together, and promote an international research environment conducive to excellent science,” said Maria Leptin, director at EMBO.
Since 1964, EMBO has supported talented researchers from the field of the life sciences. Members are carefully selected through impartial evaluation processes. This year, a total of 63 researchers from 25 different countries received lifelong memberships in EMBO; 52 of the researchers are members and 11 are associate members.
Professor Eva Hoffmann is one of the researchers from Denmark who have been awarded a membership in EMBO this year. The other Danish researcher is Professor Eske Willerslev, who was the head of the Center for GeoGenetics, which was supported by the DNRF during the period 2009-2019.
