  The Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry is a research institute of the Max Planck Society located in Martinsried, a suburb of Munich. The Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, founded 1912 as a Kaiser Wilhelm Institute, was relocated from Berlin in 1945 to Tübingen and moved once more in 1956 to Munich.

Additional recommended knowledge

The institute in Munich was founded 1973 by the merger of three former independent institutes, the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry, , the Max Planck Institute of Protein and Leather Research, founded 1954 in Regensburg, and the Max Planck Institute of Cell Chemistry, founded 1956 in Munich.

Currently the institute hosts nine departments:
- Cell Biology (Erich A. Nigg)
- Cellular Biochemistry (Franz-Ulrich Hartl)
- Membrane Biochemistry (Dieter Oesterhelt)
- Membrane and Neurophysics (Peter Fromherz)
- Molecular Biology (Axel Ullrich)
- Molecular Cell Biology (Stefan Jentsch)
- Molecular Medicine (Reinhard Fässler)
- Molecular Structural Biology (Wolfgang Baumeister)
- Proteomics and Signaltransduction (Matthias Mann)

Graduate Program

The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences is a graduate program offering a Ph.D. in biochemistry. The school is run in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology, the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich and the Technical University of Munich.
