SOMERSET, NJ—Tartaglia Communications has been named to manage national public relations, marketing and scientific writing for the Max Planck Florida Institute, a leader in research on the structure, function and development of the brain’s neural circuits.

“We chose Tartaglia Communications because of their experience in communicating about neuroscience and their ability to interpret and publicize basic research on a national level,” says Claudia Hillinger, president of the Max Planck Florida Foundation and vice president for institute development, Max Planck Florida Institute.
