Berlin's governing mayor Michael Müller visits translation hub.
Yesterday Berlin's governing mayor Michael Müller visited the Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies (BCRT). At the Campus Virchow-Klinikum he, Dr. Matthias Kollatz-Ahnen (Finance Senator), Cornelia Yzer (Science Senator), Steffen Krach (State Secretary of Science) and Boris Velter (State Secretary of Labour) were informed about current research projects of the interdisciplinary translation centre.
Prof. Axel Radlach Pries (Dean of the Charité), Prof. Georg Duda (Deputy Director of the BCRT) and Prof. Andreas Lendlein welcomed the guests and explained the structure and development of the BCRT. According to Prof. Duda the centre aims to pursue application-oriented research. The main question is, how to combine an excellent clinic and excellent basic research to speed the outcome of solutions for patients up. An important factor is the close proximity between medical centres and research, which allows a fusion between research and patient's care. To demonstrate this, Prof. Duda and his interdisciplinary team introduced different science projects, like regenerative therapies for heart diseases explained by heart surgeon Prof. Christof Stamm.
