Vision 2020 - Learning About the Origin of Life from Efforts to Design an Artificial Cell

To celebrate the inaugural year of the EMBL Advanced Training Centre and to set the stage for what we hope will be decades of exceptional scientific presentations, the EMBL plans to host a unique series of forward-looking scientific lectures by world leaders in their fields, called “Vision 2020”. Nobel laureates have been invited to share their vision of the future of their field with an audience of scientists from different areas of the life sciences and interested members of the public. World leaders in their fields will share their thoughts on where their field currently stands and which exciting new developments and possible breakthroughs they see shaping this field within the next 10 years.
