Why work at the MPI for Biology of Ageing?

Sylvie Burnouf, postdoc, Department Partridge

"As scientists in the field of ageing, finding clues to better, healthier ageing is what drives our research day by day. Having the opportunity to carry out such research in the stimulating scientific environment of the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing with its state-of-the-art research facilities is a chance in a lifetime."

Kristina Behrend, postdoc, Max Planck Research Group Sara Wickström

"For me, working at the Max Planck Institute means having access to and working with state-of-the-art technologies and instruments."

Christian Kukat, postdoc, Department Larsson

"Cologne is a lively city and offers an outstanding basis for scientific collaborations. We study the connection between mitochondria - the "power plants" of the cell - and ageing. In my scientific work at the MPI for Biology of Ageing I enjoy a lot of freedom and at the same time receive excellent support from our directors and my lab members as well as from our core facilities and administration."

Martin Denzel, postdoc, Department Antebi

"The MPI for Biology of Ageing is a fantastic place to do some of the most exciting research of our time! We want to understand the reasons for ageing, which is a challenge for all of society. Among places to pursue this fascinating and important work, the MPI for Biology of Ageing is second to none."

Nadia Storm, PhD student, Department Antebi

"Ageing is cool to study because it's the only "disease" or physiological condition that everybody for sure will meet in their life."

"The Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, like any other Max Planck Institute, provides me with an exciting platform to perform cutting edge research. Here, I get the environment and opportunity to discuss and exchange scientific thoughts with highly motivated colleagues and scientists of international reputation".

Sushmita Ghatak, PhD student, Max Planck Research Group Sara Wickström
