500 researchers from all over the world at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) are almost always in action - not only for the Dresden Science Night (Dresdner Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften) on June 30, 2023, but especially then! This year, our building will not be open, but you can find us at the TU Dresden in building of the Faculty of Biology (see exact address below).

We prepared an exciting program for you and we'll hope to see many of you at our two info booths at TU Dresden.

You can find us here this year!

Full program of the 2023 Dresden Science Night:



How do cells form tissues? Info booth Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics

5:00 pm until 0:00 am
Get to know the Dresden Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG) at this info booth and take a quiz! 500 curiosity-driven scientists from over 50 countries have one research mission: How do cells form tissues? Our basic research programs span multiple scales of magnitude, from molecular assemblies to organelles, cells, tissues, organs, and organisms. We are looking forward meeting you!

How does the skull form?

5:00 pm – 0:00 am
Our skull is very important, not only because it shapes our face but because it also protects our brain. How does the skull develop? Studying this process is essential to better understanding what causes diseases which affect skull shape and function. The research group of Jacqueline Tabler at the MPI-CBG is working on answering those questions and our scientists will be happy to discuss with you. Come and visit us and have a look at cranial bone cells under the microscope.
