Berlin Science Week

Berlin Science week (1-10 Nov) is an international gathering, bringing together people from the world’s most innovative scientific institutions in Berlin. It is dedicated to the dialogue between science and society to inspire a deeper understanding of our world. Please find the FMP program here

 

 

Welcome to the Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP)

The FMP conducts basic research in Molecular Pharmacology with the aim to identify novel bioactive molecules and to characterize their interactions with their biological targets in cells or organisms. These compounds are useful tools in basic biomedical research and may be further developed for the treatment, prevention, or diagnosis of disease.
To this aim FMP researchers study key biological processes and corresponding diseases, such as cancer, aging including osteoporosis, or neurodegeneration. They also develop and apply advanced technologies ranging from screening technologies over NMR based methods to proteomics and in vivo models.

A new signaling pathway for mTor-dependent cell growth

NATURE CELL BIOLOGY The activation of mTor complex 1 in the cell is central to many vital processes in the body such as cell growth and metabolism. Overactivity of this signalling pathway can result in diseases such as in diabetic insulin resistance and cancer. A (...)[more]

Gene for acid-sensitive ion channel identified

eLIFE In the human body the salt content of cells and their surrounding is regulated by sophisticated transport systems. Special channels in the cell membrane selectively permit salt ions to flow in and out of cells. A research team led by Professor Thomas (...)[more]

A Matter of Dynamics

NATURE COMMUNICATIONS Most ion channels are very selective about the ions, which may or may not pass through them. They may be conductive for potassium ions and non-conductive for sodium ions or vice versa. However, a number of ion channels allows for the (...)[more]

When Bacteria Build Homes

PNAS Bacteria like to make their gooey homes along boundary surfaces to protect themselves from inclement conditions and attacks. So far, however, the architectural strategy of these bacteria has eluded researchers. A team working with the scientists Anne Diehl (...)[more]

How a Mutated Gene Triggers Hypertension

NATURE GENETICS Arterial hypertension (high blood pressure) can occur when the adrenal cortex produces excess aldosterone hormone. How does this happen? Scientists working at the Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) and the Max Delbrück Center for (...)[more]

Novel contrast medium promises deep insights into the fate of cells

NATURE PROTOCOLS Imagine tracing the fate of specific cells in deep layers of tissue using minute amounts of an externally triggered contrast medium. The almost unimaginable is within reach today! A new contrast medium in the form of gas vesicles moves this goal (...)[more]
