EXC 115

Dear prospective candidate for our Master scholarships.

Before you take a closer look at the website of the research centre, we would like to give you some basic information about it. 

Here is a short profile for your convenience:  
CEF is a research center dedicated to the study of the structure and the function of macromolecular complexes.  Its full name - “Cluster of Excellence Macromolecular Complexes in Action” - reflects its funding from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) as part of the German Excellence Initiative.  In CEF, scientists at the Goethe University Frankfurt conduct research in close collaboration with scientists at the Max Planck Institutes of Biophysics and Brain Research. Macromolecular complexes are involved in all life processes in cells and a better understanding of the details involved in their assembly and functioning is vitally important to understand how many diseases develop and how they might be prevented or cured. Research in CEF focusses in particular on membrane protein complexes, RNA-protein complexes and complexes involved in signal transduction and quality control.
