Peter Papagiannis

European Molecular Biology Laboratory

Peter moved from Canada to Germany in 2017 to join the über-international European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). In his role with EMBL Alumni Relations, he created a volunteer programme from scratch and has empowered alumni volunteers in over 80 countries. In addition to the volunteer programme, Peter oversees innovative, alumni-led events around the world which raise EMBL’s profile and strengthen life science communities. In 2018, two EMBL alumni won the CASE Europe Volunteer of the Year Award for these aforementioned events and he is looking forward to sharing their story with you.

Peter has spent his entire career in university advancement and non-profit fundraising, including roles in development and alumni relations, previously with the University of Victoria in Canada.
