International Cooperations

The Max Delbrück Center is continually developing and maintaining scientific and research relations between our institute and other higher educational and research institutes worldwide. Currently, our scientists have cooperations with researchers from over 30 countries.

About 65% of MDC scientific papers in 2020 were published in co-authorship with international partners from the USA, the UK, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, among others.

Approximately 53% of our research staff (including PhD students, 2023) have a foreign nationality.

The Max Delbrück Center is a founding member of the EU-LIFE, an alliance of top research centres in life sciences to support and strengthen European research excellence.
