Videos from the MDC

Making research tangible and understandable often requires more than text. That's why we produce videos about science at the MDC.

Why does it take so long for new therapies to emerge from basic research? This is a question that researchers at the MDC and beyond encounter frequently. For us it was also the starting point for a film: 

A long and winding road  – a film with Thomas Blankenstein, Elisa Kieback, Mathias Leisegang, Antonio Pezzutto and Wolfgang Uckert. (with English subtitles)
