EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic

With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.


Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.

EMBL has taken the necessary decision to pause our programme of external courses and conferences. As a result, we are cancelling this meeting and apologise for the inconvenience.
