Date:2/17/2012

In 2010 the MDC ranked 14th on the Thomson Reuters list in the field of molecular biology and genetics, making it the only German research institution to be among the world's "Top Twenty".

Furthermore, Professor Rosenthal emphasized the MDC's extensive participation in excellence clusters and collaborative research centers, the acquisition of eight ERC grants and the award of the Leibniz Prize the most highly endowed German research prize to Professor Nikolaus Rajewsky, head of the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology (BIMSB) at the MDC, during the period covered by the report.

"The founding charter of the MDC, which was formulated in 1992, is more relevant than ever," Professor Rosenthal went on to say.
