Visting Fellows

To integrate internationally renowned scientists into the Berlin research landscape and to foster collaborative projects, the QUEST Center has established the funding of Visiting Fellows.

The QUEST Visiting Fellows come to Berlin on a regular basis to participate actively in the research and activities of the QUEST Center.

As of 2019 John P.A. Ioannidis will join the QUEST Center as an Einstein BIH Visiting Fellow. With his research group he will build up the Meta Research Innovation Center Berlin (METRIC-Berlin), see press release (in German). The Center and fellowship are  funded by the Stiftung Charité and the Einstein Foundation Berlin.
