Success in the EMBO Young Investigator Programme

26 November 2018

Dr Alan Cheung

We are very pleased to congratulate Alan Cheung who is among 26 life science researchers across Europe selected to become EMBO Young Investigators. Each year EMBO selects some of the very best junior group leaders in Europe to join this programme through a very competitive selection process. Congratulations also to Anthony Roberts, a Birkbeck member of the joint UCL/Birkbeck Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology who has also been selected. The EMBO Young Investigator Programme provides a wide range of benefits all aimed at helping awardees to become internationally successful research group leaders. These include many networking and leadership training opportunities.

Alan was recruited to UCL through the UCL Excellence Fellowship scheme that aims to recruit and support outstanding junior group leaders as they transition to independence. He also obtained highly competitive Henry Dale Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust that has enabled him to initiate very ambitious and innovative research programme.
