Insights into „Inner Worlds“

Picture exhibition of the Cluster of Excellence „Cells in Motion“ (CiM) on the Münster University campus

April 07, 2016

More than 13,000 people have visited the picture exhibition by the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Excellence (CiM), in which nine directors and group leaders of the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine are involved, in the "Dominikanerkirche" in Münster last year. Starting in May, the 27 colourful images are exhibited again, this time on the Münster University campus. One of the images originates from Florian Seebeck and Dr. Kerstin Bartscherer, Max Planck Research gorup leader at the MPI for Molecular Biomedicine.

With microscopes and tomographs, scientsist are on the scent of cells, and that in various spatial dimensions - from micro to macro. The images in the exhibition show how single cells look like, how they move along and communicate with each other, how the nervous system or other organs develop and how blood vessels are constructed. Some images show how diseases within the body appear. A free brochure "Images stories to search and find" makes the tour along the images particularly vivid.


  • From May 10 - 22 the images are displayed in the Münster Castle. On Pentecost, May 15, and Pentecost Monday, May 16, scientists explain their exciting research with the aid of their images. Start is at 4:00 pm. The guided tours take approximately 30 minutes. There is no need to register. Opening hours: Mondays to Fridays 8:00 am - 8:00 pm (shortened times on May 11: 8:00 am - 3:00 pm).
