Innovative capacity and responsible governance, for the benefit of patients and society – these are the central tenets behind all of Charité research endeavors.

At Charité, approximately 5,242 researchers are actively engaged in the development of pioneering innovations in the field of medicine. Committed to the highest standards of quality and sustainability, they work across 1,000 projects, working groups and collaborative projects.

There is a particular focus on the interface between basic and patient-oriented research, which seeks to foster interdisciplinary collaborations with both national and international partners. Harnessing the potential of this approach is of particular importance to Charité given that the most significant scientific developments are likely to arise from interdisciplinary cooperation. 

Research at Charité

In addition to promoting its six main areas of research focus, Charité is also supporting areas which boast particular expertise and innovative potential.

Research Support Services

Charité offers a comprehensive range of services for researchers, which cover a range of issues, from research funding and technology platforms to centralized service facilities and project management.


Given the increasing complexity of today’s research questions, research successes and new developments are likely to arise primarily as a result of interdisciplinary and/or international collaborations. Charité pursues a wide range of cooperative projects, in particular those promoting the mutual exchange of findings from basic biomedical research, clinical research and clinical application. While committed to both national and international research, and growing its reputation on both the national and international stage, Charité remains true to its roots. Charité is very much the heart of Berlin-based health care research as well as its driving force.
