Stefan Glöggler received the Felix Bloch Lecture by the German Chemical Society for his research on methods in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). He improved the signal duration and strength of metabolic molecules and built a portable mini-MRI device.
Kristian Blom and Aljaž Godec at the MPI for Biophysical Chemistry successfully exploited the Ising model – which was originally used to describe ferromagnetism – to understand how the avidity of adhesion receptors and the strength of cellular adhesion can be regulated by mechanics.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded the Gregori Aminoff Prize to the director at the MPI for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen. The academy honors his groundbreaking research on how RNA is formed in cells.
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.
