Science Seminars (Prestigious Lecture Series)

Science communication events are a daily occurrence at EMBL. We are happy to share selected lectures, making them available to the public for online viewing. We hope that these webcasts may serve as windows into science communication activities taking place at our institute.

The seminar recordings viewable on this website have been selected by EMBL staff according to established criteria. However, EMBL is in no way responsible for, nor necessarily endorses, the views and opinions expressed by invited speakers.

Approximately once a month, prominent scientists from various fields within the life sciences visit our institute and give talks within the EMBL Distinguished Visitor Lecture Series. Here you can access some of these lecture events in the form of webcasts.
