The EMBO Membership is a recognition of a contribution to scientific excellence. BRIC and DanStem Professor Kim B. Jensen’s election, is thus a tribute to his research and achievements by the scientific community.
With more than 1,800 elected members, who are leading researchers in their respective fields, EMBO, The European Molecular Biology Organization promotes excellence in the life sciences. The major goals of the organization are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a European research environment where scientists can pursue challenging scientific question.
EMBO funds or co-funds over 90 meetings, attracting more than 11,000 participants every year. The organization publishes five peer-reviewed scientific journals: The EMBO Journal, EMBO Reports, Molecular Systems Biology, EMBO Molecular Medicine, and Life Science Alliance.
The EMBO Membership is an award granted by the organization in recognition of research excellence and the outstanding achievements made by a life scientist. New Members are annually elected by existing EMBO members in appreciation of their contributions to scientific excellence. BRIC and DanStem Professor Kim B. Jensen’s election, is therefore a tribute to his research and achievements in the scientific community.
Kim Jensen started as a group leader 11 years ago with the aim that his research team would provide greater insight into how cell fate is regulated at the molecular level. Initially, the aim of the group meant to focus on the skin epithelium, however, by serendipity they started studying the intestinal epithelium in parallel.
