About the John Kendrew Award

The John Kendrew Young Scientist Award ceremony was made even more special this year with the attendance of its donor for the decade 2011-2020, Roland Specker, the EMBL Alumni Association board (almost in their entirety), former EMBL group leader Jochen Wittbrodt and an amazing turn-out of EMBL staff.

Jochen's speech struck a particularly special chord with EMBL Administration, as he told the audience that what he misses most about EMBL is the canteen and Administration. "No where do you find a Unit dedicated entirely to facilitate the work of scientists," he explained before moving on to the other many special features of EMBL, namely the culture and language (EMBLish).
