Claus Ropers’ Department of Ultrafast Dynamics applies innovative methods to investigate electronic, structural, and magnetic processes in solids, nanostructures, and on surfaces. Variety to the daily laboratory life brings the team with a wide range of ventures and creative ideas. [more]
Nothing works with incomprehensible code – not even a cell. Patrick Cramer is carrying out research on the enzyme that transcribes the DNA code to enable a protein to be synthesized from a gene. To do so, he relies on high-resolution microscopes and artificial intelligence. [more]
Since September 2021, the structural biologist heads a research group located at the City Campus. With his team, he investigates the structures and mechanisms of the cargo delivery within our cells. [more]
Our research group leader Sonja Lorenz studies particular, small proteins that have the power to rule all the others. [more]
Marieke Oudelaar secured a place in the highly competitive Max Planck Society’s (MPS) new excellence program for female junior researchers and now heads the rst Lise Meitner Group at the MPI-BPC. With her team she wants to uncover how the organization of the DNA inside our cells is related to the regulation of the activity of our genes. [more]
Since the end of last year, Hauke Hillen has led a double life: He is professor of protein biochemistry at the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) and heads a research group at the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Biophysical Chemistry. In this portrait, he revealed how he found his profession, what his research focuses on, and how he combines both affiliations. [more]
Unusual sounds can be heard in the building of the Biomedical NMR group at the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Biophysical Chemistry on June 17, 2019: The professional musicians of german hornsound are visiting to be filmed with real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) while playing horn. With this MRI performance, the brass players support a research project. [more]
