FEBS Junior Section

Junior Section, FEBS

The FEBS Junior Section is organised by students and young researchers from some FEBS Constituent Societies. They develop joint activities, such as online talks and other events, and share resources, as well as open doors for young European scientists to opportunities outside their home countries by providing the relevant contacts and fostering communication within the network.

The FEBS Journal is an international journal devoted to the rapid publication of full-length papers covering a wide range of topics in any area of the molecular life sciences.

'FEBS Communications' posts general items from the FEBS Network Team as well as news on FEBS events and other activities.

Brooke Morriswood

former group leader, University of Würzburg

I write a blog called Total Internal Reflection about the human side of science. Postings are generally either opinion/commentary (either serious or silly) or "How To" pieces aimed at improving young scientists' soft skills. 

A longer biography and manifesto are on the blog here.

The International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology unites scientists in 75 countries or regions through a society, national council, or academy of sciences.

Dr. Jan Ellenberg

Head of Imaging Centre / Head of Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)

Over the past 20 years, I have been interested in cell division and nuclear organization, including systematic analysis of mitosis, nuclear pore complex structure and assembly, as well as chromatin organization and formation and segregation of mitotic and meiotic chromosomes. My goal has been to obtain structural and functional measures of the required molecular machinery inside cells using quantitative 4D imaging, single molecule spectroscopy, as well as light sheet and super-resolution microscopy, which my group is constantly developing and automating to address all molecular components comprehensively. Since many years we are supporting large EU-wide efforts on systems biology of mitosis, as well as microscopy automation and unbiased computational image analysis, (,,, establishing methods to reliably score up to billions of cells and capture rare and transient functional states automatically.

Due to the importance of new imaging technologies for the future life sciences and to make imaging technologies more accessible to researchers, I have coordinated EMBL 's and European efforts which led to the establishment of the EMBL Imaging Centre ( and of the Euro-BioImaging ERIC (, respectively
