Research turns into health: Topping-out ceremony for Translational Research Centre in Berlin

A new research centre for translational science is currently built directly adjacent to the Charité bed house in Berlin-Mitte. Under one roof, the patient-oriented and translational research of the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) will be combined with the medical care of the Charité.

The former clinic building from the 1970s was completely gutted for this purpose. This shell will now become a modern research building with laboratories, diagnosis and treatment rooms and the corresponding technological infrastructure – everything that translational science needs to “translate” new research results into innovative treatment methods. So far, all milestones of the construction project have been met despite the corona pandemic.

The Federal Minister of Research Anja Karliczek and the Governing Mayor of Berlin and Senator for Science and Research Michael Müller paid tribute to the successful progress of the measures at a topping-out ceremony.
