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.
Dr. Laura Hindersen, a former doctoral student in the Department of Evolutionary Theory, will receive the Otto Hahn Medal this year. The award is 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.
