Berlin Institute of Health at Charité:

The mission of BIH as the translational research area of Charité – University Medicine Berlin is medical translation. BIH translates findings from biomedical research into novel approaches for personalized prediction, prevention, diagnostics and therapy. Conversely, it utilizes clinical findings to help researchers in developing novel approaches. The aim is to deliver relevant medical benefits for patients and citizens – turning research into health. BIH is not a typical research institute. Its innovative approach is to utilize cross-organ systems medicine in a comprehensive translational ecosystem to significantly increase the speed and effectiveness of medical translation. One main reason for its success is the clinical and scientific environment at the Charité and across Berlin, enabling a high degree of interaction with different partners. The MDC (Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine) is central to the development of technologies and new mechanistic approaches.
