Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees (Kuratorium) is a means to enhance outreach and exchange with the public at large. It may also provide important non-scientific guidance for the strategic development of the institute and open up for new funding possibilities. For this reason, the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research has, in collaboration with the neighbouring MPI for Biology of Ageing, compiled a list of individuals representing different social stakeholder groups who will support us in our work.
