Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry

The Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) in Martinsried, Munich is one of the leading international research institutions in the fields of biochemistry, cell and structural biology and biomedical research. With about 20 scientific departments and research groups and about 750 employees, the MPIB is one of the largest institutes of the Max Planck Society.

The approximately 350 scientists, coming from over 50 different nations, study the structure of proteins – on single molecules, but also on complex organisms. Their work and the support of various central service facilities make the MPIB a leading international institute in the field of protein research. The high quality of the research work is also reflected in numerous awards and prizes. Two scientists have already been awarded the Nobel Prize: Feodor Lynen in 1964 and Robert Huber in 1988.
