Besides the departments, 4 research group leaders with their teams are currently established at the institute. Research groups are department-independent groups that have their own budgets - mostly with external financial resources.

One of these groups is an Emeritus Group: since November 1, 2021, Professor emeritus Dr. Hans R. Schöler, together with Dr. Thomas Rauen, continues his research in the MPG White Paper Emeritus Group with a team of seven scientists.
