Today we had the chance, teachers and students of our High School, to go on a virtual tour around the European Molecular Biology Laboratory – EMBL of Haidelberg, organised by the EMBL ELLS! The virtual tour included the history of EMBL, 2 speeches on the life of a researcher and a technician in the EMBL, as well as a speech regarding the mini organs and how they are used so that we learn more about the cancer cells’ biology. In total, the tour was extremely interesting and offered us a window to the word in this hard time of the lockdown! I wish to thank the organisers for their hosting as well as our student group for their active participation.
