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.

Cellular Cartography - Charting the Sizes and Abundance of Our Body's Cells Reveals Mathematical Order Underlying Life (19.09.2023)

International scientists unveil the first human cell index, mapping cell size and abundance throughout the body. In a landmark PNAS study, they uncover surprising mathematical patterns that challenge our basic understanding of cellular organization.
