Matti Saraste Fund
The Alumni Association would like to thank all those who have generously donated to the Matti Saraste Fund. Matti, who was a Group Leader and Unit Coordinator of EMBL's Structural and Computational Biology Unit (1990- 2001), died in 2001. To commemorate him, and in recognition of his commitment both to science and to EMBL, the Matti Saraste Fellowship Fund was established.
The aim of the fund, which is administered by the Alumni Association, had originally been to support a student in the EMBL International PhD Programme. While a substantial sum of money has been donated, the total is far short of what is required and it is unlikely that it will increase significantly.
Alumni board members, in consultation with Matti's family, have given careful thought to how best to use the money and have voted in favour of a dedicated Matti Saraste memorial in the grounds of the new ATC building.
