Life Science Campus Martinsried-Großhadern
Munich offers one of the most dynamic and rapidly growing life science research environments in Germany. The Life Science Campus Martinsried-Großhadern is a hotbed of scientific activity and provides excellent opportunities and outstanding facilities to researchers at all levels.
The Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) on the Martinsried campus is one of the largest biological and medical research institutions of the Max Planck Society. The Max Planck Institute for Biological Intelligence, facilities of the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) Munich and the Biotechnology Innovation and Start-Up Center (IZB) are located in the immediate vicinity.
Since 1984, the Max Planck Institute for Biological Intelligence (MPI-BI) has been an integral part of the Martinsried campus. Today, more than 1000 employees work at the MPIB and the neighboring MPI-BI, making Martinsried one of the largest Max Planck sites in the world.
The Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy as well as the Biocenter and the Biomedical Center (BMC) of the LMU are located in the immediate vicinity. The University Hospital Großhadern, the Gene Center of the LMU and the Hämatologikum of the Helmholtz Center are also within walking distance.
Another important campus partner is the Biotechnology Innovation and Start-up Centre (IZB). On currently 25,000 m², the IZB offers more than 50 biotech start-ups the perfect conditions for their first years. Quite a few of the currently successful companies started as spin-offs of the Max Planck Institutes.
Where there is so much research and work, the infrastructure must be right. The cafeteria, canteen, The Bowl and the Seven and More restaurant provide for the physical well-being on campus. There are also three daycare centres for children. Equipped with a Faculty Club, a hotel for academic guests and a restaurant, the "Campus at Home" is a central meeting place for the academic community. The planned extension of the underground line U6 will make the Campus even easier to reach in the future.

Research Networks on Campus
Over the last decade, substantial efforts have been made to enhance and facilitate scientific collaboration at all levels. IMPRS-ML faculty members are heavily engaged in local, national and international scientific collaboration through a variety of networks. These include the Excellence Clusters CIPSM (Center for Integrated Protein Science Munich) and SyNergy (Munich Cluster for Systems Neurology) as well as the networks MCN (Munich Center for Neurosciences), BCCN (Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience) and CeNS (Center for NanoScience) that bring together scientists from various research areas with the aim of fostering interdisciplinary research at the highest level. In addition, numerous DFG-funded Collaborative Research Centers (CRC), Priority Programs and EU-funded Research Networks contribute substantially to scientific cooperation and collaboration on the campus.
