In the event of an impending global flu pandemic, vaccine production could quickly reach its limits, as flu vaccines are still largely produced in embryonated chicken eggs. Udo Reichl, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems, and his colleagues have therefore been working on a fully automated method for production in cell cultures that could yield vaccines in large quantities in a crisis.

MaxSynBio: Ceremonial Opening of the Research Programme on Synthetic Biology

April 21, 2015
Since its inception, biology has been about life. Yet, precisely what life is, not to mention how it emerged, remains unclear. The researchers involved in the MaxSynBio programme would like to contribute to finding answers to these questions. Together with the President of the Max Planck Society, Martin Stratmann, and representatives of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), they presented their research programme at Harnack House, the Max Planck Society’s conference venue in Berlin.

German Malaria Researchers from Berlin and Magdeburg win International „Humanity in Science" Award

March 11, 2015
Chemist Prof. Peter H. Seeberger and chemical engineer Prof. Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern have been selected as the inaugural “Humanity in Science” prize winners. Seeberger, director at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces Potsdam and professor at the Freie Universität Berlin and Seidel-Morgenstern, director at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems Magdeburg and professor for chemical engineering at the Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg, won the prize for their groundbreaking work in developing new production methods for antimalarial drugs. They received the “Humanity in Science” prize during a gala dinner on March 10, 2015 in New Orleans, USA. The prize money is 25.000 USD (roughly 22.500 €). The award was launched in 2014 by the “The Analytical Scientist” a journal and Phenomenex, a separation technology company. [more]
