For Yvonne Padberg, a doctoral student in Biology, it was a dream come true: in Ventura, in the USA, she received a prize for the best talk at a prestigious scientific conference for junior researchers. A CiM travel grant for female researchers had made the trip possible.

Understanding Through Imaging

Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence (CiM)

CiM is a network of about 80 research groups of the University of Münster and the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine. To study the dynamic interactions between cells, they develop and apply novel imaging strategies. Biomedical imaging links different scientific disciplines in CiM – from medicine and biology through chemistry and pharmacy to physics, mathematics and computer science. The cluster has been funded since 2012 by the German Research Foundation (DFG) in the context of the Excellence Initiative of the German federation and the federal states. Cells-in-Motion - The Film
