EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic

With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.


Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.


More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.

EMBL is committed to sharing research advances and sustaining scientific interaction throughout the coronavirus pandemic. We are delighted to announce that the conference is going virtual and invite you to join us online. The virtual conference includes live-streamed talks from invited speakers with live Q&A sessions as well as meet the speaker sessions, pre-recorded short talks, digital poster sessions with recorded flash talks and networking opportunities.

Conference Overview

The conference sets the stage for the dissemination and exchange of new developments in diverse, hot fields within chemical biology. It is the largest and longest standing conference in the field, being a platform for inspiration, collaboration and networking for researchers in academia and industry. We aim to provide the possibility for every chemical biologist to virtually meet and discuss with peers topics ranging from tool development to biological applications, from computational drug design to synthetic chemistry.

The conference Chemical Biology 2010 was one of the first conferences held at the new Advanced Training Centre at EMBL Heidelberg. Due to the large success of the initial conferences in 2008 and 2010 the following conferences in this biennial series became a member of the family of EMBO-funded conferences. On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the conference, Angewandte Chemie compiled a virtual issue, which contains selected papers published in Angewandte Chemie by the speakers and organisers of the 2018 conference as well as the previous two conferences.
