The Center for Transforming Biomedical Research of the Berlin Institute of Health was founded in 2017. The acronym QUEST represents its main themes Quality | Ethics | Open Science | Translation.
QUEST strives to maximize the quality, reproducibility, generalizability, and validity of BIH research. Ultimately, QUEST aims to foster a change in the culture of academic biomedicine even beyond the BIH, towards greater scientific rigour, transparency, as well as academic rewards and incentives conducive to sound science.
By conducting meta-research and providing education, tools and services, QUEST addresses topics such as quality assurance in research, bioethics of translation, open science, rewards & incentives, as well as citizen science. QUEST is directed by Prof. Dr. Ulrich Dirnagl, who also heads the Department of Experimental Neurology at the Charité.
