Welcome to the MPI-CBG

The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG), founded in 1998, is one of 82 institutes of the Max Planck Society, an independent, non-profit organization in Germany.

"How do cells form tissues?" has been and still is the question that researchers at MPI-CBG are tackling from different angles. Molecular cell biologists provide insight into basic processes of cellular life and organization. Developmental biologists and geneticists place these functions into the context of tissue development in different model organisms like zebrafish, Drosophila, C. elegans, or mouse.

The MPI-CBG has also invested extensively in Services and Facilities to allow research scientists shared access to sophisticated and expensive technologies.

The Scientist voted the MPI-CBG the number one place in the world in academia and the number one place in the world to do a postdoc. The institute was named the "Most family-friendly company in Dresden" in 2012. The MPI-CBG is member of DRESDEN-concept, a research alliance of the Technische Universit├Ąt Dresden together with the major non-university partners and culture institutions in Dresden.
