“Turning research into health!” – The Berlin Institute of Health at Charité (BIH) turns 10 years old

The Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) was officially founded exactly 10 years ago today, March 25, 2013. The aim was to advance medical translation and thus accelerate the transfer of basic research findings from the bench to the bedside. The BIH at Charité is now the translational research unit of Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and forms its third pillar alongside the university hospital and the medical faculty, while the Max Delbrück Center in the Helmholtz Association (Max Delbrück Center) has become the Privileged Partner of the BIH. This marks the first time that the German federal government is structurally involved in an institution of a university hospital.
