Why is it important to support fundamental research?

Fundamental research drives progress and innovation. In biomedicine, it provides the thorough and detailed understanding of living processes that is required for the development of treatments and, ultimately, cures for human diseases; thus, it has the potential to affect the lives of millions.

In supporting fundamental research at EMBL – or elsewhere – you are making a strategic choice that will have a long-term impact.

Today, many different organisations compete for your friendship and patronage, and we have great respect for all those who pledge their support for a worthy cause. Should you decide to extend your philanthropic commitments to include EMBL, we would consider this a great privilege.

Thank you!
