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 3,700 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.
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. Developed in cooperation with the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC), the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) continues to expand, offering a systems medicine approach that is unique in Germany.
