In 2013, Marc accepted a position as independent junior research group leader at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig. His research on the infection biology of Salmonella and the function of type III secretion systems was funded by a Marie Curie Career Integration Grant of the European Commission and a Young Investigator Grant of the Helmholtz Association. Since 2017, Marc is Associate professor for Bacterial Physiology at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. In 2018, Marc was awarded the Forschungspreis der Vereinigung für Allgemeine und Angewandte Mikrobiologie ( Research Prize 2018 of the Association for General and Applied Microbiology) and recently an European Research Council Consolidator Grant.
