There are over 4,500 scientists at the Charité Medical Faculty engaged in frontier biomedical research in countless projects, working groups and cooperations. The focus here is on translational interaction of experimental, molecular biological basic research with patient-oriented clinical application. On this basis, in 2014 the Faculty raised more than 151 million Euros from public and private investors (“third-party funds) to finance its research activities. This enabled it to secure a top position among the medical faculties in Germany and become the leader in Europe.

There already exist a large number of Charité research areas that are distinguished by national and international collaborative projects as well as interdisciplinary cooperations. In six selected areas, the Charité is striving for a top position in the national and international research rankings, thus focusing on the following areas of research:

  • Immunological sciences
  • Cardiovascular research and metabolism
  • Neurosciences
  • Oncology
  • Regenerative Therapies
  • Rare diseases and genetics

The “Berlin Institute of Health (BIH)” research area jointly operated with the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) thereby complements the Charité research activities in a scientific focus on system medicine unique in Germany.

Particular emphasis is placed on the promotion of young researchers – notably young scientists. Moreover, the Charité is developing its own support programs and has set up various graduate academies, in which young scientists can undergo further qualification and specialization.
