Funding for the International Max Planck Research School for Genome Science extended

The Max Planck Society is funding the International Max Planck Research School for Genome Science for another six years. The PhD program combines experimental and computational methods to train young scientists in the field of genome research (in German). more

Herbert Jäckle elected as member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences

Already during his time as Vice President of the Max Planck Society, the scientist encouraged international cooperation with China on the topic of science. For this achievement and his work in the field of developmental biology, he is awarded the highest academic honor the country grants in science and technology. (in German) more

Technology transfer award for light microscopes with molecular resolution

For the entrepreneurial implementation of research results in the field of high-resolution light microscopy, abberior Instruments GmbH, Max Planck Innovation and our institute receive the Technologieftransferpreis  from the German Physical Society. (in German) more

How a little change drives a whole factory

During protein synthesis, both tRNAs and messenger RNA move rapidly through the ribosome. This movement is GTPase-powered by elongation factor G. Scientists at the MPI for Biophysical Chemistry have visualized the steps of ongoing translocation, revealing how a small local event drives large-scale movement in a huge RNA-protein complex. more

Albrecht Kossel Prize for Marina Rodnina

The director at the MPI for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen was honored by the German Chemical Society for her research in the field of biochemistry. She received the prize in a ceremony on October 21, 2021.  more

A small Noah's ark

October 20, 2021

On October 18, the institute's biotope project BioDiversum was inaugurated. Guest of honor was the well-known ornithologist and conservationist Peter Berthold, who even in his old age never tires of promoting his heartfelt mission: a conservation concept that also works in our intensively used and spoiled landscape. more

Life sciences get a quantum boost

Stefan Glöggler received the Felix Bloch Lecture by the German Chemical Society for his research on methods in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). He improved the signal duration and strength of metabolic molecules and built a portable mini-MRI device. more
