Brain research and patients care
When the German Research Institute of Psychiatry (DFA) was founded in 1917, its broad, interdisciplinary approach set new standards in the fields of psychiatric and neurobiological research. Now, in 2017, the two Max Planck Institutes that the DFA gave rise to look back on a century of research in these areas.
Today, the Max Planck Institute for Psychiatry is also characterized by the combination of research and care. Two current construction projects are exemplary and forward-looking: the Preclinical Center enables research at the highest level, and the new construction of the research clinic is to set standards in patient care.
Crucial advances in psychiatry will therefore depend on personalized, scientifically based medicine.The prerequisite for this is the uniquely close interaction between basic science, clinical research and clinical services.
One hundred years later, the Max Planck Institutes look back on neurobiology and psychiatry
Outstanding scientists illustrate at our symposium in Martinsried on 13th and 14th March 2017 how far research has come in the past 100 years. We are looking forward to lectures by the following speakers:
Richard Axel • Cori Bargmann • Karl Deisseroth • Tom Island • Reinhard Jahn • May-Brittmoser • Huda Zoghbi
We cordially invite you to this symposium. For more information, see the poster on the right.
We are looking forward to welcome our invited guests to our ceremony on March 14th.
In the accompanying exhibitions at both institutes, guests and visitors will learn more about methods and achievements as well as about the history of the institutes. The exhibition is open to the public at the Max Planck Institute for Psychiatry, Kraepelinstraße 2 from 15 to 31 March 2017, Monday to Friday between 9 am and 2 pm.
