Web development

The Web Development team, led by Bren Vaughan, maintains the EMBL-EBI website and supports teams throughout the organisation in a number of ways. They manage the main EBI website, internal websites and also a multitude of other bespoke websites or portals for projects in which EMBL-EBI is a collaborator. They utilise User Experience Design and user testing to better understand what users need and in turn develop web assets that are both functional and usable.
