Max Planck scientists begin the move into new biomedical research facility

JUPITER, Fla. -- Two years after the groundbreaking of a new biomedical research facility in Jupiter, several scientists are moving in.

The Max Planck Florida Institute will house state of the art technology that will help researchers study how human brains are wired. The institute also plans to develop treatments for neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and autism.

Scientists should be moved in by the end of the week and will spend the next few months calibrating their equipment.

The institute hopes to become the first fully functioning facility of its kind in the United States by December.
