Sascha Martens: Elected EMBO member


EMBO has played an important role throughout Sascha Martens’ scientific career: It has supported him with a postdoctoral long-term fellowship during his time at the MRC-LMB in Cambridge. Also, more recently, he has received a Young Investigator Award that has supplied him with additional resources and network opportunities to establish his lab at the Perutz. In our doctoral program he servved on the thesis advisory committee of many students and proved to be an excellent mentor.

“Being an elected EMBO member is a great honour for me and for my research. As a new member of this community, I am looking forward to helping promote and support the next generation of life scientists in Europe”, says Sascha Martens.
