Connect & Collaborate

Find the right technology and collaborate with our researchers

The Max Delbrück Center offers a broad spectrum of experts in various research areas of molecular medicine. Together with stakeholders from research, society and politics, we strive to find innovative solutions for today's great challenges.

Engage with the Technology Transfer Office

Since its foundation the Max Delbrück Center has fostered a problem-solving approach that encourages researchers to work together across fields and institutional boundaries. The resulting collaborations have included many fruitful partnerships with industry and other leading research institutions.

To enable collaboration on technology development the Technology Transfer Office forges links between industry and our research groups. We are happy to work with you to identify researchers who might be interested in collaborating with your company. For more information about our researchers working in your areas of interest, browse our available technologies, contact the Max Delbrück Center Technology Transfer Office or email

Engage with our researchers

The first step is a general consensus as to the nature of the research project between you and the researcher(s) from the Max Delbrück Center. Once this is achieved, the Technology Transfer Office will participate in creating whatever documents are necessary to formalize the partnership. As soon as we have received all required information on the research proposal from the Principal Investigator we will contact you to discuss the preparation of the appropriate contract.

Transfer of research materials

Access to materials and research tools is an essential part of scientific research. The Technology Transfer Office supports our scientists in sharing proprietary materials, data sets or software via Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs).
