EMBL Administration

  • DE-EMBL IB-ADM01
  • Institutional body

The activities of EMBL Administration started in 1973 when the Agreement establishing the European Molecular Biology Laboratory was signed by the Member States. This agreement was ratified on 1974-07-04.

EIROforum

  • DE-EMBL IB-EIR01
  • Institutional body
  • 2001/

EIROforum was created in 2001 by seven European research organisations: the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organisation for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere (ESO), the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) and the European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA). EIRO stands for European Intergovernmental Research Organisation.

Following initial discussions 2000 and 2001, EIROforum was formally established by the signing of the EIROforum Charter was signed in Brussels (BE) on 2002-11-12.

The European XFEL Free-Electron Laser Facility (European XFEL) joined EIROforum on 2010-11-08, becoming its eighth member.

EFDA-JET was succeeded in EIROforum by EUROfusion in 2014.

EIROforum is governed by the EIROforum Council, which is comprised of the leaders of the member organisations. One of these leaders is the chair of EIROforum for one year, on a rotational presidency, from 1 July annually. The EIROforum Council meets twice per year, once in Brussels (BE) and once at the institute of that year’s chair.

Dubochet, Jacques

  • DE-EMBL ID-P-DUB01
  • Person
  • 1942-06-08/

Dubochet was born in Aigle, CH and was raised in the Swiss cantons of Vaud and Valais. He attended the École polytechnique de l'université de Lausanne (which became the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in 1969) from 1962 to 1967, receiving a degree in physical engineering (in French: ingénieur physicien). In 1969, he obtained a certificate in molecular biology from the Univeristy of Geneva, after which he worked under the supervision of Eduard Kellenberger between the University of Geneva and the Biozentrum of the University of Basel (founded in 1971). Dubochet obtained his doctorate in 1973 (“Contribution to the use of dark-field electron microscopy in biology”).

In 1978, Dubochet joined EMBL in Heidelberg as a Group Leader of the Electron Microscopy Applications Group within the Division of Biological Structures( later the Biological Structures Programme). He stayed at EMBL until 1987 when he joined the University of Lausanne, where he stayed until his retirement in 2007, after which he stayed on as an honorary professor.

In 2015, Dubochet received EMBL's first Lennart Philipson Award (announced in 2014-12). On 2017-10-04, Dubochet is awarded a Nobel Prize in Chemsitry, shared equally with Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson for the development of cryo-electron microscopy which enables the determination of high-resolution structures of biomolecules in solutions. His received the prize from King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden in Stockholm, SE on 2017-12-10.

Director General's Office

  • DE-EMBL IB-DGO01
  • Institutional body
  • 1974/

Previous to the use of the appellation "Office of the EMBL Director General", this service was delivered by the Secretary to the Director General.

Course and Conference Office

  • DE-EMBL IB-CCO01
  • Institutional body
  • 1983/

The EMBL Course and Conference Office (CCO) exists to help deliver the teaching and training mission of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL).

As one of EMBL’s core missions, EMBL delivers advanced training to a variety of audiences. The CCO focuses on delivering a programme of academic conferences and practical training courses and conferences to the international life sciences community.

From 1974 to the early-1980s, EMBL’s training activities (courses, workshops and seminars) was mostly driven by individual staff members. A comprehensive list of these can be found in the EMBL Annual Reports from the period.

From the early-1980s, the delivery of training was consolidated. From 1983, Nelly van der Jagt works part-time on organizing the logistics of courses, a role taken over in 1987 by Maria Ittensohn. In 1989, the position of “Course and Workshop Secretary” is created, and it is filled by Ingeborg Fatscher. Throughout this period and until 1999, the “Course and Workshop Secretariat”, and later the “Courses Secretariat” is, hierarchically, an administrative department.

In 1984, the EMBO-sponsored “Yeast Genetics” course, taught by François Lacroute (Strasbourg) and Albert Hinnen (Basel) is the first course hosted at EMBL Heidelberg that is not run primarily by EMBL staff.

In July 1987, EMBL Council approves plans to build an auditorium and better teaching facilities at EMBL Heidelberg; in December 1988, the EMBL Operon is inaugurated.

In 1999, the “Conferences Office”, becomes part of the EMBL Photography Laboratory.

From 2004, training activities are reorganized at EMBL, and in 2006, the “Course and Conference Office” becomes part of the “External Training” arm of the EMBL International Centre for Advanced Training (EICAT) programme. From 2007 to 2016, Sally Böhm is the Head of Course and Conference Office. Geoffrey Barnett takes over this position.

Cameron, Graham Neil

  • DE-EMBL ID-P-CAM01
  • Person
  • 1951-07-22/

Graham Cameron was born in Edinburgh on 22 July 1951.

After initial training in psychology, Cameron spent the majority of his career working with databases. He joined EMBL in 1982 to work on the Nucleotide Sequence Data Library and was subsequently involved of the development of the Data Library into a new EMBL outstation, the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI).

Boulin, Christian

  • DE-EMBL ID-P-BOU01
  • Person
  • 1948-12-23/2014-04-27

Boulin was born in Thann, FR in 1948.
Between 1966 and 1969, he studied Mathematics and Physics at Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg, FR. He then competed a diplôme universitaire de technologie (DUT) in computer science at the Institut universitaire de technologie (IUT) of Belfort, FR (1969-1971). He then studied for a Masters "Electronique-Electrotechnique-Automation" at the École supérieure des sciences exactes et appliquées in Mulhouse, FR and then a DEA (diplôme d'études approfondies) in nuclear instrumentation, also at the Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg (1973-1974). He completed a doctoral thesis in the field of nuclear instrumentation (physics) at the Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg and the Institut National de Physique Nucléaire et de Physiques des Particules. His thesis was entitled "Contribution à l'étude et à la réalisation d'un processeur micro-programmable, ultra-rapide, destiné à la gestion des tâches CAMAC" (see DE 2324 P-BOU-C) in 1977.
