The International Max Planck Research School for Chemical and Molecular Biology (IMPRS-CMB) is a collaboration between the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology and three universities, the Technical University Dortmund (TU Dortmund), the Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) and the University of Duisburg-Essen (DUE).

All four institutes are located in the Ruhr Metropolitan Area of Germany, an extremely vibrant and culturally interconnected region. The same spirit is reflected in the science of our program: research groups, with different and often complementary approaches, combine their efforts to study at the molecular level basic cell physiology.

Below you can find all the research groups that are part of IMPRS-CMB, in alphabetical order. You can also search groups by name, topic or technique.
