EMBL Insight Lectures
The EMBL Insight Lectures represent a lecture series held annually by scientists who are working at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory.
The idea behind the EMBL Insight Lectures is to inform young people about current trends in life science research and to show how research is influencing our every day lives.
The presentations are specifically designed for students and teachers alike who are interested in life science research and who want to make cutting-edge research a part of their biology lessons. The slides offer attractive graphical illustrations, short text explanations which are reduced to the point and a coherent design which makes it easy to understand complex topics.
