Interview with Joan Mecsas on her sabbatical at the MPIIB
If you are a scientist, have you ever thought about pressing the pause button in life to focus your thoughts on your research, to rethink your scientific goals and to get a break from the administrative day-to-day business?


Condolence Note

We mourn the Max Planck research group leader Suzanne Eaton, who was found dead on Crete on 8th July, and still cannot comprehend this shocking and terrible tragedy. Suzanne was a brilliant scientist and a mainstay of the MPI for Cell Biology and Genetics, where she had been a research group leader since the year of its inception. Our thoughts are with her family, her friends and her colleagues.
