Long Night of the Sciences


On June 15, 2019, the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) invites you to its laboratories on the Berlin-Buch campus: From 4 pm to 11 pm you can experience our research during the Long Night of Sciences.

Highlights 2018

This year in focus: our kidneys. For example, we have a walk-in giant kidney and a station for kidney selfies.

Further highlights this year: A centuries-old "Fitbit", the interactive show "Real or Fake?" and of course numerous glimpses behind the scenes of research on our laboratory tours. There are also lectures at Café Scientifique, crazy guerrilla scientists and rickshaws across our green campus. Several offers are also available in English.
