Research foci

Charité covers all medical specialties, a result not only of its history but also its sheer size. In order to ensure it can maintain its position as a research leader on both a national and international level, Charité is now focusing its efforts on a number of areas of clinical focus.

Research foci – areas of special research interest at Charité

The term 'research foci' refers to all those areas of research that receive substantial funding support from Charité, and which seek cooperation with influential external partners. High priority is given to research areas that offer an interdisciplinary approach and close integration of basic and clinical research. While one of the aims is to ensure that new research findings are quickly translated into clinical practice, the training of the next generation of physicians and researchers also plays a significant role in these areas.
