News from Apr 27, 2018
Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and Technische Universität Berlin are to receive a new joint science building. At its meeting in Trier on April 27, 2018, the German Council of Science and Humanities recommended funding of the “Simulated Man” (Si-M) research building. Within the framework of research buildings at universities (Art. 91b GG) and partly financed by the German Federal Government and the State of Berlin, the new building should be completed by 2023. It will be jointly operated by the two partners Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and Technische Universität Berlin and facilitates research at the interface of engineering sciences and medicine. Using new technologies, such as high-resolution analysis of individual cells, tissue cultivation in organ-on-a-chip systems, or 3-D bioprinting methods, physicians will work in the 2,700 square-meter building side by side with scientists and engineers from various disciplines in analyzing the functions of human cells and tissue. Initially, the focus will be on oncological, immunological, and regenerative issues. The new building will be located at Seestrasse in Berlin’s district of Wedding.
