BIH: Berlin Institute of Health

The mission of the BIH is medical translation: The BIH aims to translate findings from biomedical research into new approaches for personalised prediction, prevention and therapy and, conversely, to develop new research approaches from clinical observations.

The BIH is not a typical research institute. Its innovative approach is to utilize a novel concept of clinically-anchored cross-organ systems medicine in a comprehensive translational ecosystem to significantly increase the speed and effectiveness of medical translation. One of the main reasons for the success it enjoys in translational research is the clinical and scientific environment at the Charité and across Berlin, enabling a high degree of interaction due to the proximity of different partners. The MDC (Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine) is central to the development of technologies and new mechanistic approaches.


Charité is one of the largest university hospitals in Europe. All of our clinical care, research and teaching is delivered by physicians and researchers of the highest international standard. Charité proudly lays claim to more than half of all German Nobel Prize winners in Physiology or Medicine, including Emil von Behring, Robert Koch, and Paul Ehrlich. Charité is internationally renowned for its excellence in teaching and training.  Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin represents a single medical faculty, which serves both Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and Freie Universität Berlin. Charité extends over four campuses, and has close to 100 different Departments and Institutes, which make up a total of 17 different CharitéCenters. Having marked its 300-year anniversary in 2010, Charité is now one of the largest employers in Berlin, employing 16,300 staff (or 19,400 if including its subsidiaries), and with a total annual turnover of €2.2 billion (including external funding and investment grants).
