The Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies (BSRT) combines pure science, materials science, clinical disciplines, and biotechnology with the goal of repairing or replacing tissues and organs impaired by aging, diseases, trauma, or congenital abnormalities. BSRT is a cooperative initiative of Freie Universität, Humboldt-Universität, and their jointly operated medical school Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, as well as Technische Universität Berlin, Universität Potsdam, and other high-ranking research institutes in Berlin and Brandenburg, including several Max Planck Institutes, Helmholtz Institutes, Fraunhofer Institutes, Leibnitz Institutes, and the Hasso-Plattner Institute.
The graduate school operates in close association with the Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies (BCRT) and offers an excellent interdisciplinary education and outstanding research opportunities. It aims to prepare young scientists coming from different disciplines for a successful research career in the highly interdisciplinary field of regenerative medicine. The training and research cover four main areas: disorders of the immune system, the cardiovascular system, the nervous system, and the musculoskeletal system.
BSRT students are educated to have not only a profound understanding of their own field, but also a substantial understanding of the associated clinical needs and a broad knowledge in cell biology, molecular biology, bioengineering, biotechnology, and biomaterials. The graduate program includes a comprehensive range of seminars as well as an opportunity to conduct an independent research project. The students are supervised by outstanding representatives from academia and industry.
With the additional funding during the second phase of the German Excellence Initiative, BSRT will expand its doctoral program. With the support of the BSRT network, postdocs will be able to pursue their own innovative research ideas in regenerative medicine. Students enrolled in master’s programs in the life sciences at the various universities in Berlin, will be given first insights into the research going on at BSRT. A program for training clinicians to become clinical scientists will be developed into a model for other departments at Charité. The main objective is interdisciplinary cooperation between early-career scientists in various branches of regenerative medicine – from basic research to applications. Innovative training concepts are employed that were developed in BRST’s BioThinking program.
