Leibniz-Institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie
The FMP was founded in 1992 as a successor to the "Institut für Wirkstofforschung", an Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the GDR. It was renamed "Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie" - hence, its acronym FMP. Then as now, the institute focused on proteins as basic structures of the lives of all cellular organisms.
From the beginning, the FMP has been a member of the Leibniz-Association and is now called Leibniz-Institut für Molekulare Pharmakologie. The FMP and seven other Berlin Leibniz-Institutes are legally represented by the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V.
As a Leibniz-Institute, it receives its core funding from both the national government (Bund) and the federal state (Land) Berlin (50% respectively). In 2009, the institute received a total of 14.6 Mio Euro and attracted an additional 4 Mio Euro external funds.
