Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology
Infections are among the most significant medical challenges. The relationships between microbes and their hosts are also essential drivers of evolution. At the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology, researchers from different disciplines search for answers to fundamental questions in infection biology. The scientists investigate how viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi and worms cause diseases and how their hosts react to them. The research encompasses different levels: Atoms, molecules, cells, tissues and organisms as well as medical and social aspects.
