With the establishment of the Max-Planck-Zentrum für Physik und Medizin (MPZPM) in Erlangen, we have opened a new chapter of “Physics and Medicine” where physics plays an integral and indispensable role in understanding life and what leads to anomalies and, thus, disease. MPZPM is an interdisciplinary joint research center run by Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Erlangen University Hospital (UKER) and Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (MPL).

MPZPM hosts a combination of tenured and nontenured principal investigators who cover various areas of research at the interface of physics and medicine. Until the move into the MPZPM building, the groups are housed at MPL (Guck, Sandoghdar, Singh), Dept. of Mathematics at FAU (Zaburdaev), Institute for Medical Technology, FAU (Franze) and Optical Imaging Center Erlangen (OICE, Dulin).
