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

We do pioneering work in the field of basic research: 500 curiosity-driven scientists representing 50 nationalities work at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) in Dresden and ask: How do cells form tissues? The cross-disciplinary research program brings together people from different parts of the world and from a wide variety of backgrounds and creates a vibrant working environment and an exciting atmosphere.

In 2009, The Scientist voted the MPI-CBG the number one place in the world in academia, and also ranked it 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 part of DRESDEN-concept, a research alliance of Dresden University of Technology together with the four major German research institutions – Max Planck, Helmholtz, Fraunhofer, and Leibniz – aimed at the development and use of synergies in research, education, infrastructure, and administration.
