Prof. Carvalho’s contribution to our understanding of the role the ER plays in protein degradation and organelle biogenesis was recognized through his election to the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO).
EMBO is an international organisation of life scientists, which aims to support outstanding researchers at all stages of their careers and to cultivate a collaborative environment that is conducive to science. Today, together with 69 other scientists from around the world, he joins this community of over 2,000 scientists.
“I feel very honoured to be elected by my peers to become an EMBO member.” said Prof. Carvalho “Also, I would like to thank all the present and past members of the lab. Our success as a group depends on their hard work and enthusiasm.”
He will be formally welcomed to EMBO at the annual members meeting between the 25th and the27th of October in Heidelberg, Germany. Pedro will be the 10th EMBO member in the Dunn School together with: Ivan Ahel, Peter Cook, Matthew Freeman, Susan Lea, Nick Proudfoot, Jordan Raff, Liz Robertson, Chris Tang and Ervin Fodor.
