Leibniz Institute for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) Back
University accreditation does not apply to courses from this institution
The FMP is devoted to research in molecular pharmacology, a field which deals with the interaction of small molecules with their cellular targets, and the effects of these interactions on cells and organisms as a whole.
Our Molecular Physiology and Cell Biology section studies cell biology, physiology and pathology.
Our Chemical Biology section develops molecular tools for probing cellular processes.
Finally, our Structural Biology section explores drug-target interactions at the molecular level.
The FMP was founded in 1992 as a successor to the "Institut für Wirkstofforschung", an Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the GDR. It was renamed "Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie" - hence, its acronym FMP. Then as now, the institute focused on proteins as basic structures of the lives of all cellular organisms.
