Berlin has excellent scientific expertise in the field of regenerative medicine in a wide variety of individual research groups from various scientific disciplines. Ten years ago the translational research cluster, Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies (BCRT), and its associated graduate school, Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies (BSRT), were formed and, as a consequence, interdisciplinary research and education in the field of regenerative medicine have gained great momentum ever since.
The Einstein Center complements the existing structures of BCRT & BSRT forming a hotbed for new ideas.
It provides an open culture for the different players of the regenerative landscape in Berlin and Brandenburg spanning disciplines ranging from basic biology to clinical medicine.
The Einstein Center for Regenerative Therapies is a joint initiative of the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Technische Universität Berlin, as well as the non-university partners Max Planck Institut für Kolloid und Grenzflächenforschung, Zuse Institut Berlin, Max-Delbrück-Center für Molekulare Medizin and the Helmholtz-Zentrum für Biomaterialforschung.
