The Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies (BSRT) provides interdisciplinary training for young scientists at the highest international level.

Interdisciplinary research and education

Maintaining communication between scientists is one of the greatest challenges in interdisciplinary research. Clinicians, biologists, biochemists and engineers speak different technical languages, but they need to work together. This is where the work of the internationally renowned Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies comes in.

The BSRT graduate school, the interdisciplinary education center attached to the BCRT, is funded through the Excellence Initiative program (GSC 203) of the German Research Foundation (DFG). The scientific and didactic orientation of the graduate school is to provide young scientists not only with the necessary expertise in their own field of research but also with a comprehensive understanding of each of the other disciplines.

In line with the BCRT's focus on translation, our training program offers participants a broad understanding of cell and molecular biology, bioengineering, biotechnology, and biomaterials, as well as key skills such as scientific writing and presentation. It also covers clinical trials, economic issues, and career planning. The close connection to the BCRT ensures a continuous exchange of information on the current state of research and offers a whole range of development opportunities.

Three Tracks of the BSRT

PhD students in the natural sciences and materials science are prepared over a three-year period for a career in scienceor industry; physicians receive specialist training over a fiveyear period with a wide range of research opportunities.
