Active Involvement in the Leibniz Association
The INM is a member of the Leibniz Association, which connects 96 research institutions that range in focus on natural, engineering and environmental sciences to the economics, spatial and social sciences and the humanities.
The INM coordinates the Leibniz Science Campus Living Living Therapeutic Materials. Together with Saarland University and the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland it develops new materials for the personalized administration of biotherapeutics.
The INM coordinates the Leibniz Research Alliance Nanosafety, which, together with six partners, investigates issues ranging from the uptake of nanoparticles into the human body, its organs and cells to the design of safe nanomaterials.
The INM and the Leibniz Association have appointed Robert McMeeking, Distinguished Professor of Engineering, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA, 2018 as Leibniz Chair in 2018 to recognize his services to the INM. He is one of the world’s leading materials researchers in theoretical modeling and numerical simulation of complex materials.
