Organization of the Institute
The Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry currently consists of eleven departments, three Emeritus groups and about 30 research groups with their own research focus. These are supported through fifteen central scientific and general service facilities. With more than 800 staff – including approximately 470 scientists – the institute is one of the largest in the Max Planck Society and unique in its interdisciplinary approach.
In order to maintain a high scientific standard, an advisory board of international scientists regularly assesses the research undertaken at the institute. A board of trustees, composed of scientists as well as representatives from industry and politics, supports the integration of the institute's work into the wider social context.
