Organization of the Institute

The Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry currently consists of 12 departments, 4 Emeritus groups and 23 research groups with their own research focus. These are supported through fifteen central scientific and general service facilities. With more than 850 people  – among them about 470 scientists – the institute is one of the largest in the Max Planck Society and unique in its multidisciplinary 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.
