We offer the following types of support

  • Medical research student research stipends, allowing time for excellent doctoral research projects.
  • The translational PhD Program is aimed at qualified basic scientists interested in translational and systems medicine research. PhD students are supervised by two scientists from different research areas (f.e. a combination of clinical, basic science, and systems medicine group leaders).
  • The BIH Charité Clinician Scientist Program, which is building onto the former Charité Clinical Scientist Program, is aimed at clinicians. They are offered protected time of approximately 50% of their working time, as well as options to develop themselves further scientifically.
  • Via Junior Clinician Scientist Grants young clinicians with a proven interest in science receive resources enabling them to continue to do research during the first years of their residency. They are being offered protected time of approximately 20% of their working time.
  • Through translational Postdoc Project Grants we aim to attract excellent Postdocs in the natural sciences in the context of interdisciplinary projects in translational research.

Individual Support

Individual scientists who distinguish themselves with a clear translational and systems medicine profile are also supported. This is done in cooperation with Stiftung Charité via the Private Excellence Initiative of Johanna Quandt. The Excellence Initiative funds scientists in translational and systems medicine research.
