Scientific Advisory Board

To ensure the high quality and productivity of research, the Max Planck Institute of Immunobiology and Epigenetics (MPI-IE) routinely undergoes evaluations by independent scientific advisors – the 'Scientific Advisory Board' (SAB).

Board Members of the MPI-IE SAB are internationally renowned scientists, who are appointed by the president of the Max Planck Society for a period of six years. The members are not affiliated with the Max Planck Society or involved in major institute projects.

It advises both the institute and the president of the Max Planck Society as to the institute's future development and research strategy. The SAB reviews the activities of the institute every three years and issues a report to the President of the Max Planck Society. This evaluation serves as an important basis for planning of further scientific developments as well as for the distribution of resources by the Max Planck Society. The SAB also supports the MPI-IE in recruiting new directors and group leaders.
