National Projects

The Max Planck Institute of Biophysics is involved in numerous national collaborations, including projects funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG), the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the Hessen State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts (HMWK), and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH).

Here you can find a selection of third-party funded projects presently implemented at the Institute:
