How to find our institute


Welcome to the MPI MiS

Fundamental questions arising from natural and engineering sciences and economics have always inspired mathematicians to search for new mathematical structures and methods. The interaction between mathematics and the sciences forms the central point of research at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (MiS) in Leipzig.

Dr Matteo Smerlak has been awarded the Human Frontiers Science Grant (11.04.2019)

Our Sofja Kovalevskaja research group leader Dr Matteo Smerlak has been awarded one of the prestigious Young Investigators Grants from the Human Frontier Sciences Program Organisation (HFSPO). In a collaborative research project he will investigate processes of RNA based evolution.
