Profile


The institute was founded in 1947 as "Medical Research Institution". In 1948 it was taken over by the Max-Planck-Society and in 1965, it received its current name "Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine".

 

The research focus of the institute is on neuroscience. Research activities cover a wide spectrum of topics, ranging from basic molecular analyses of neuronal processes to clinical studies on novel therapies of neurological and psychiatric disorders in patients. The central aim of all these studies is to understand basic molecular and cellular processes in brain function, to analyze their pathological dysfunction in psychiatric and neurological diseases, and ultimately to develop novel therapies for these disorders.
