50th anniversary of the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics
This year, the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics (MPIMG) will celebrate its 50th anniversary. For this reason, we want to look back to 50 years of research performed at the MPIMG and its impact on molecular biology and the life sciences in Germany. All former and current staff, collaborators and friends of the Institute are cordially invited to come to the MPIMG on December 5th and celebrate with us.
Participation in the Ceremony and the Scientific event are free of charge. For organisational reasons, please register by using the link on the right.
