Funding from the economic stimulus package II makes interdisciplinary research work at the highest level possible
In a festive ceremony, the Parliamentary State Secretary of the Federal Minister of Education and Research, Thomas Rachel, Berlin's Senator for Education, Science and Research, Prof. Jürgen Zöllner, and the Dean of Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Prof. Annette Grüters-Kieslich, opened the new research building, which has also housed the Julius Wolff Institute since the summer.
The building on the Campus Virchow-Klinikum of the Charité, which formerly served as a dental clinic, was renovated and equipped according to the latest standards within only 18 months with the help of subsidies from the economic stimulus package II. Subsidies from the European Union (EFRE), which the Julius Wolff Institute acquired, made it possible to provide state-of-the-art equipment for musculoskeletal and regenerative research. The result is an institute and research building with highly specialized laboratory space for interdisciplinary research and clean rooms for the production of cell products.
In addition to the Julius Wolff Institute, the Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies (BCRT), the Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies (BSRT), the Institute of Medical Genetics and Human Genetics, the Institute of Medical Immunology, and the Kidney and Transplant Research Department of the Nephrology Clinic all work in the building.
"I am particularly pleased about the interdisciplinary use of the project because it makes it clear that additional potential can be tapped through the cooperation of high-ranking scientific players. This ultra-modern research building is an important milestone in further strengthening Berlin as a location for top-level medical research at the highest level," said Science Senator Prof. Jürgen Zöllner at the opening ceremony.
