Dr. Jan Ellenberg, Head of the EMBL Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit
“The Postdoc Retreat is developing into a highly professional EMBL-wide event that promotes scientific exchange as much as it provides a platform to target other essential topics such as science outreach, research ethics or the burning questions of career development options and opportunities for researchers at such a decisive point in their professional lives.”
