Why work at the MPI for Biology of Ageing?
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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".
