How do cells form tissues?

We want to understand how cells form tissues and how these tissues develop into complex organisms.

MPI-CBG remembers Suzanne Eaton

Remembering Suzanne

Collected tributes to the life and legacy of Suzanne Eaton from family, friends and colleagues.

Remembering Suzanne

Decoding Diversity

We want to understand the molecular principles underlying the development of organisms and how they brought about diversity.

Going into the unknown

We develop new technologies that make the invisible visible and simulate biological processes to understand life.

What makes cells tick?

We want to understand how cells function in detail, how they communicate, and how they organize intracellular exchange.

We are the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG)

We do pioneering basic research. 500 curiosity-driven scientists from over 50 countries ask: How do cells form tissues? Our research programs span multiple scales of magnitude, from molecular assemblies to organelles, cells, tissues, organs, and organisms.
