Charité - University Medicine Berlin
The mission of the Berlin Institute of Health at Charité (BIH) is a medical translation: findings from biomedical research are translated into new approaches for personalized prediction, prevention, diagnostics, and therapy; inversely, observations in everyday clinical practice lead to new research ideas.
The goal of the approximately 400 scientists is to achieve a relevant medical benefit for patients and citizens. To reach this goal, BIH, as a translational research unit at Charité, establishes a comprehensive translational ecosystem, focuses on a cross-organ understanding of health and disease, and promotes a translational cultural change in biomedical research.
BIH was founded in 2013 and funded 90 %by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and10% by the State of Berlin. The founding institutions Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC) were independent affiliates in BIH until 2020. Since 2021, the BIH was integrated into the Charité as a third pillar, as a translational research area of the Charité; the MDC is a Privileged Partner of the BIH.
