Max Delbrück Centre for Molecular Medicine (MDC) Berlin

The Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine is devoted to biomedical research with the aim of understanding the molecular basis of health and disease and translating findings as quickly as possible into clinical applications. Better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases are the ultimate goals.

Master's Programmes



The MDC is named after the German-American Nobel Prize winner Max Delbrück. 

The MDC was founded in 1992, based on institutes of the former Academy of Sciences of the GDR, with a mission of translating discoveries from molecular research into applications to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of major human diseases.


With over 300 PhD students in several graduate programs, the MDC is helping to educate a new generation of scientists. In addition, the MDC is involved in the continued professional development of teachers and in the education and training of young people.


Research at the MDC aims to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of health and disease, and translate those findings into medical practice. These core activities are pursued in more than 60 independent research groups across four main research areas.


The university offer a wide range of challenging scientific and non-scientific positions with diverse career development and training opportunities.
