The Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry and the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, situated door-to-door in Martinsried near Munich, are two of the worldwide leading institutes in their field of research.
At the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, the research centers around the elucidation of the structure and function of proteins. The scientists investigate, among others, the role of proteins during cell division, in the metabolism or in the development of diseases. The scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology focus on the brain and the nervous system. Their aim is to understand their organization, development and function and what happens in case of neuronal diseases.
The institutes' scientists are supported in manifold ways by the scientific, administrative and technical service groups of the institutes. Many of these groups offer the possibility for vocational training. About 40 trainees currently acquire the skills for one of the following professions: animal technician in Research and Clinic, Biology Laboratory Technician, IT Specialist for System Integration, Media Designer, Office Clerk and Precision Mechanic.
