The Center

The BCRT is an internationally recognized center with a strong interdisciplinary program with basic research, clinical research areas and enabling technologies being closely linked within an innovative translational infrastructure (business development, regulatory affairs, health economy).

About Us

The BCRT was founded in 2006 as an alliance between the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, one of Europe's largest university clinics, and the Helmholtz Association, Germany's largest research association. A team of over 250 employees- including physicians, scientists, engineers, experts in translational medicine, PhD students and technical staff - are conducting research at the BCRT's two sites: at the BCRT building on the Virchow Clinic Campus of the Charité, with its close links to the BCRT partner clinics, and at the Teltow Campus of the Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, the Centre for Biomaterial Development.
