The Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine was founded on 1 April 2001 in Münster, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is part of the Max Planck Society. The current managing director is Prof. Dr. Hans R. Schöler.
The Institute was founded on 1 August 2001 in Münster, Germany. Founding director was Prof. Dr. Dietmar Vestweber. In 2004 another department was added (Prof. Dr. Hans Robert Schöler). In the same year, the institute got its current name: Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine. In 2006 the institute moved to a new and modern building offering more space and equipment. At the end of 2007 another department was added (Prof. Dr. Ralf H. Adams). This department moved from the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute to the MPI.
- Department of Vascular Cell Biology (Director: Prof. Dr. Dietmar Vestweber)

Department of Vascular Cell Biology
The Department of Vascular Cell Biology is concentrating its research on leukocyte migration into inflammatory sites.
Department of Cell and Developmental Research
The Department of Cell and Developmental Biology works on germline development and pluripotency.
Department of Tissue Morphogenesis
The Department of Tissue Morphogenesis works on how cells make tissue, in particular blood vessels.
- The MPI for Molecular Biomedicine offers a Master of Science and a PhD in Molecular Biomedicine together with the University of Münster. Both degree programmes are taught in English.
