We are grateful to the following people, companies and foundations that have supported us in extraordinary ways:

Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation (BIS)

The Imaging Technology Centre on EMBL Heidelberg Campus will be a unique service facility for the life sciences and unite cutting-edge equipment, experts and data analysis, open also to visiting scientists from all over the world as well as industry partners.

We thank the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation for making a major donation towards the operation of the new centre with a special focus on training scientists from academic institutions from all over the globe to work with the highly advanced microscopes.

Dietmar Hopp Stiftung

The EMBL Advanced Training Centre provides training opportunities through conferences and workshops, and state-of-the-art training laboratories that create an exemplary, flexible infrastructure for practical courses. We thank the Dietmar Hopp Stiftung for making a major contribution to equipping these training labs that enable many young scientists and medical doctors to advance their research through practical training on modern techniques and technologies.

Klaus Tschira Stiftung

The EMBL Advanced Training Centre would not have been initiated without Klaus Tschira’s vision for a ‘double helix building’ and a generous donation from the Klaus Tschira Foundation. This represents an unparalleled contribution to the advanced training of molecular life scientists in Europe and was realised with additional support from the German Federal Ministry of Science and Education (BMBF) and the state of Baden Württemberg.

Manfred Lautenschläger Stiftung

The Manfred Lautenschläger Foundation has supported the Science and Society Programme at EMBL for more than 10 years. We have deepest respect for Manfred Lautenschläger’s outstanding contributions to promoting science and research in the Rhein-Neckar region.
