The grand opening of the Einstein Center for Regenerative Therapies (ECRT) at Charité -Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the jointly operated medical school of Freie Universität and Humboldt-Universität, was celebrated on December 1, 2017. The scientists at this research center are concerned with the reinstatement and repair of biomaterial – such as cells, tissues, and organs – that have been damaged or destroyed by various diseases. They work together with researchers in the fields of engineering science, biology, and medicine.
The center at Charité, which since early 2017 has been the beneficiary of Einstein Foundation Berlin funding, supplements and unifies the existing structures of the Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies (BCRT) and the Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies (BSRT). During the course of its ten-year history, the school has been training young scientists studying the interdisciplinary field of regenerative medicine – a focal point of research at Charité. Young scientists at BSRT benefit from an approach to the promotion of collaborative science (BioThinking) that is unique in the world. They are part of a strong and intellectually stimulating network, which also incorporates nonuniversity research facilities. Prof. Dr. Georg Duda is the spokesperson for both ECRT and BSRT.
