The cornerstones of EMBL's mission are: to perform basic research in molecular biology and molecular medicine, to train scientists, students and visitors at all levels, to offer vital services to scientists in the member states, to develop new instruments and methods in the life sciences, and to actively engage in technology transfer.
EMBL's international PhD Programme has a student body of about 170. The Laboratory also sponsors an active Science and Society programme.
Many scientific breakthroughs have been made at EMBL, most notably the first systematic genetic analysis of embryonic development in the fruit fly by Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard and Eric Wieschaus, for which they were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1995.
