The Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology (German: Max-Planck-Institut für Infektionsbiologie) is a research institute of the Max Planck Society located in Berlin. The institute was founded 1993 near the Charité hospital in Berlin on the campus of the Humboldt University of Berlin in Berlin-Mitte. The Institute commenced its operation in a provisional laboratory facility and a small group of scientists that has greatly expanded over the years, and relocated to an especially built facility in summer 2000. The new facility is located in the heart of Berlin on the historical Charité medical campus, where Robert Koch and Emil Behring had made their important discoveries paving the field of infection research, in close proximity to the Parliament house and the newly constructed government offices. The choice of the location was to support the goal of the Institute to research infectious diseases in close collaboration with universities and clinical units.
