Die Form der partiellen Effekte der Saisonalität der Varizellen-Inzidenz in verschiedenen Breitengraden.

Matthieu Domenech de Cellès' research group unraveled the seasonality of chickenpox cases in Colombia by using a mathematical model. This model may be transferable to other countries in Central America and has the potential to improve future vaccination campaigns. more

Here to stay: How gut bacteria withstand immune responses during infection

Bacteria of the microbiome can resist antimicrobial peptides of the immune systemthe Iatsenko lab now uncovered the mechanism behind this resilience. more

Long Night of the Sciences 2023

On June 17, the Long Night of the Sciences will take place in Berlin and the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology will open its doors to visitors for the "smartest night of the year". With a diverse program—laboratory tours, hands-on booths and much more—we invite you to look behind the scenes of the Institute and get to know our research. more

Simone Reber looking at a falcon tube

On the first of January, Simone Reber started her Max Planck Fellowship at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology. With her research group "Quantitative Biology", she investigates how cell organelles are organized and which biochemical and physical principles lie behind this self-organization. more
