At our institute, we are investigating how molecules interact to perform a wide variety of tasks - in living nature, but also fundamentally. We are convinced that great discoveries are possible when scientists from different disciplines – such as biology, physics, and chemistry – work together and openly exchange their ideas.
Graphene is an extraordinary material. Hydrogen atoms could even turn it into a semiconductor. Alec Wodtke’s team now showed how hydrogen atoms bind to it by a surprisingly efficient energy loss.This could open doors for new applications.
The developmental biologist took up office on April 1, 2019. Rink investigates how flatworms manage to completely regenerate their tissue following injury, and why this ability is an exception rather than the rule in the animal kingdom.
The Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, the GWDG, and our institute form the Max Planck Campus Göttingen. Here, employees and guests find various offers such as child care, a canteen, and a library.
