Reaching out

Feel free to drop by spontaneously at our weekly clinic (Tuesdays from 10:00-11:00, Atrium MPI-CBG, no appointment needed) for free consultation on protein biochemistry, including troubleshooting and guidance on protein expression, purification, assay development, cloning, generation of nanobodies, advice on new projects, and instant feedback on wild ideas. We can also be reached virtually over the PEPC-virtual channel in Rocketchat or by mail.
Or simply drop by in person at 1-North any afternoon!

Sample transfer

For exchange of sensitive samples, please use our pick-up box in the freezer located in 133-N.
