BIH Lecture Series: Frontiers in Translational Medicine - Scientific and Structural Challenges

During the winter semester 2019/20 the BIH starts off the new lecture series "Frontiers in Translational Medicine - Scientific and Structural Challenges" on key questions of translation in medicine. The series features lunchtime discussions with leading personalities from translational research. How must a translational ecosystem be set up, and what can we learn from international best practices? How can the success of translation be measured in the first place and how can the science system implement appropriate criteria in order to entice researchers? On Fridays at lunchtime, BIH invites an internationally renowned expert to give a lecture on these and other questions, followed by discussion and networking with the community.

Lecture 1: "Frontiers in Translational Medicine - Scientific and Structural Challenges"

Professor Axel Radlach Pries, Chairman of the BIH Board (interim) and Dean of the Charité - Universitätsmedizin, opened the new lecture series on 8 November 2019 in the Hans Virchow lecture hall of the Charité Campus Mitte.  With questions and answers on the structures and conditions of successful translational medicine, he addressed all those interested in translation and the work of BIH.

Lecture 2: "Debunking Common Myths about Translation"

On 22 November 2019 the BIH invited to the second lecture of the series. Professor Ulrich Dirnagl, founding director of the BIH QUEST Center, spoke on "Debunking Common Myths about Translation". He argued that, over the last twenty years, ideas of translation have become ingrained that were not true and distracted from different or even better approaches to translation medicine.
