Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, founded in 2003, is a joint corporation of Freie Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and functions as the joint medical school of both universities.
Freie Universität is one of very few universities in Germany to offer the full spectrum of disciplines in the life sciences – human medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, and the fundamental biological sciences.
In the southwest of Berlin, collaborative research centers and the “Functional Materials at the Nanoscale” focus area create close cooperative relationships between physicians and medical researchers and those pursuing fundamental research.
