Manuel Irimia, group leader of the Transcriptomics of Vertebrate Development and Evolution laboratory, has been elected EMBO Young Investigator. He is one of the two scientists elected in Spain of the 28 young researchers elected in the latest call.

Selection to the EMBO Young Investigator Programme is recognition of exceptional research and scientific potential. It allows young scientists to boost their own research groups in their early career.

Irimia will join a network of 47 current and 417 past Young Investigators who represent some of the best up-and-coming group leaders in the life sciences in Europe and beyond. Manuel Irimia is the fourth CRG group leader elected EMBO Young Investigator.

The programme received 224 eligible applications with a 12.5% of application success rate. 36% of elected researchers are women. Newly elected Young Investigators are based in 11 different countries, including two European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC) Associate Member States, India and Singapore.
