For the love of travel friends and survival skills: EBI Search

Throughout the year we are featuring a series of ‘Top tens’, in which we share some interesting, historical and surprising facts about the EBI training programme.

So far we’ve featured 10 milestones, 10 things that make our training unique, and 10 things that our trainers need on the road.


Have a look through our top 10s. Find the animal that one of our trainers has as a travel companion. Use EBI Search to find information about this particular type of feathery friend and a paper on their hidden keys to survival.

What is the PubMed ID (PMID) of this paper?
