Scientific Infrastructure

Over the recent years, the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE) has made major efforts to further strengthen its scientific infrastructure. Currently, nine in-house scientfic core facilities provide support in various state-of-the-art technologies and allow the implementation of highly sophisticated research projects. The close collaboration between research groups and scientific core facilities is an important pillar of the scientific success of the MPI-IE.
