Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology
The Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology is located in Bremen, Germany. It was founded in 1992, almost a year after the foundation of its sister institute, the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology at Marburg. In 1996, the institute moved into new buildings at the campus of the University of Bremen. It is one of 80 institute in the Max Planck Society (Max Planck Gesellschaft).
Currently, the institute consists of four departments with several associated research groups:
- Microbiology (headed by Prof. Dr. Friedrich Widdel (current managing director))
