Late Wednesday, the 29-member state research entity launched their Science Solidarity webpage, a resource where US-based scientists stranded abroad could connect with laboratories in their discipline and locality to continue their work temporarily. The list acts as a clearinghouse where scientists can directly contact potential hosts, independent of EMBO administration.
