Honorary professor invited to join the European Molecular Biology Organization

An Honorary professor from the Institute of Cancer Sciences has been elected as a member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) for 2015.

Professor Vassilis Gorgoulis was one of 58 new members elected in May from Europe, China, Japan, New Zealand and the United States, who join over 1700 outstanding researchers in life sciences who hold membership of EMBO.

In recognition of their contributions to life science research, new Members and Associate Members are invited to present their research at the EMBO Members’ Meeting which takes place in late October this year at the organisations’ home city of Heidelberg.

Professor Gorgoulis said: This is a great honour for me and I thank Manchester for their great and enthusiastic support, especially my long term collaborator Professor Paul Townsend, Associate Dean in MHS and professor in ICS. We are committed to continuing our research in to cell cycle deregulation during carcinogenesis.

Professor Townsend said: Working with Vassilis is an honour and a sincere pleasure. The recognition by EMBO of his and Manchester’s advances in cell biology is well deserved and we look forward to many years of excellent science and novel clinical treatments.

EMBO’s work includes mentoring young scientists and strengthening research communities across countries, helping to shape the future of science.  As an EMBO Member Professor Gorgoulis will have the opportunity to take part in these activities.
