Highly-coveted EU funding for two Plön Max Planck researchers

Profile of the institute

The Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology consists of the three departments Evolutionary Genetics, Evolutionary Theory and Microbial Population Biology.

It is focused on basic research to unravel general evolutionary processes, such as ecological adaptations, benefits of sexual reproduction or evolution of cooperation. The scope of the work includes ecological, organismic, molecular and theoretical approaches.
Recently, evolutionary biologist Eva Stukenbrock has been nominated a “Fellow” of the Canadian Institute of Advanced Research (CIFAR). Together with a group of international experts, Eva will run a “think-tank” with a focus on fungal human and plant pathogens. Their work will explore the genetic basis of the interactions of fungi and various host organisms, in particular with regard to human, animal and plant pathogenesis.

Dr. Laura Hindersen, a former doctoral student in the Department of Evolutionary Theory, received the Otto Hahn Medal this year. The award was presented during the general meeting of the Max Planck Society on June 26 in Hamburg. Congratulations!Each year, the Max Planck Society honors up to 30 young scientists and researchers with the Otto Hahn Medal for outstanding scientific achievements in connection with their doctorate. The award comes with a monetary sum of 7500 euros as recognition.Since 1978, more than 970 scientists and researchers have been awarded the Otto Hahn Medal.

For Diethard Tautz and Paul Rainey from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Plön and Ralf Sommer from the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen, Darwin laid the foundations for evolutionary science. This field of research no longer solely considers the past but, instead, increasingly looks to the future.
