Kelly Sheehan-Rooney is Head of the Fellowship Programme at EMBO. She obtained her PhD in Developmental Biology from the University of Manchester, UK, before carrying out a three-year postdoctoral position at the University of Texas in Austin, USA.

Researchers in all stages of their career are welcome to attend and could find the talk useful. The fellowships are a great opportunity for early-stage researchers as well as for group leaders to further their research interests and consider new avenues to expand into high quality research ideas.
