MDC-Newsletter: 06/2022: Welcome to the MDC!

Maike Sander

Dear Reader,

For us, the summer begins with good news. First of all, Maike Sander (pictured above) will be leading the Max Delbrück Center in the future. We are very much looking forward to her start in November and would like to share with you why the diabetes researcher is choosing to come from the Pacific coast to Berlin. Moreover, this weekend marks the return of the "Long Night of the Sciences" in Berlin, and we can finally welcome you personally in our labs again after the Corona break! A recurring theme throughout our program: the relationships between science and art.

You can't make it to Berlin on Saturday, but still don't want to miss any of the MDC's research highlights? In that case, we have something for you to read in this issue of “Insights”: for example, learn how artificial intelligence reliably detects cancer cells or how genetic scissors are becoming even more precise.

Enjoy reading and the Long Night!

Your MDC Insights Team

PS: the June episode of the BR50 podcast “Berlin Research Forschung in Berlin” is about a very relevant topic: whether green hydrogen is a bogus giant or a real alternative to natural gas.
