Organization of the network
Dr. Wiebke MöbiusHead of the Electron Microscopy Core Unit & MaxBI Spokesperson
"By working in the network, I recognize the common ground that different facilities share. This allows us to speak with one voice as MaxBI and represent our interests within the MPG. We can contribute important data to the research of our collaboration partners. And for everyday life it is helpful to see that you are not alone with your challenges."
Dr. Arun SampathkumarHead of the Plant Cell Biology and Morphodynamics group & MaxBI Deputy Spokesperson
"MaxBI provides me with the opportunity to interact with facility members across the Max Planck Society. This creates a platform to exchange experiences and knowledge, from scientific to organizational details that helps to execute our tasks better."
Dr. Christian KukatHead of the Flow Cytometry and Imaging facility, MaxBI Financial Officer & Steering Group Committee member
“The members of MaxBI are an enthusiastic and cooperative crowd of people who are always happy to help! It’s amazing how much we could achieve by joining forces in such a Max Planck-wide network. Sharing is caring!”
Dr. Elisa D'EsteHead of the Optical Microscopy facility & MaxBI Steering Group Committee member
"Being a MaxBI member means that whenever you have a question, you find someone who supports. Having limited staff in most of the facilities, this is highly valuable!"
Dr. Gabriele MalengoHead of the Flow Cytometry and Imaging facility & MaxBI Steering Group Committee member
"Getting in touch with many colleagues from other Core Facilities of the Max Planck Society made me feel part of a large, enthusiastic and cooperative community, and able to exchange useful information both on the organisational and technical side."
Dr. Stefan VolkeryHead of the Light Microscopy Service Unit & MaxBI Steering Group Committee member
"Working in cross-MPI research groups is an enriching exchange. You come into contact with other colleagues from other facilities and through the joint work you have the opportunity to further develop and improve the facilities in the Max Planck Society. It is also always exciting to gain insights into other facilities, because this also broadens one's own horizions."
Dr. Jan PeychlService Leader of the Light Microscopy Facility & MaxBI Steering Group Committee member
"With MaxBI we could achieve things we could not achieve for many years before."
