The Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies

Seize the opportunity to learn the distinctive language of Regenerative Medicine

Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies (BSRT)

The BSRT offers outstanding interdisciplinary training and research opportunities for clinical, biological, and engineering scientists working in the field of regenerative medicine who want to look beyond their research and aim at translating their scientific discoveries into clinical applications.

Future field regenerative medicine

The Berlin-Brandenburg School for Regenerative Therapies was established in November 2007 as graduate school 203 of the German Research Foundation (DFG) within the Excellence Initiative which promotes top-level-research, education and scientific excellence. The BSRT is a joint initiative of clinicians, biologists and (bio-)engineers at the Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Freie Universität Berlin. Innovative research is conducted in the rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field of regenerative medicine which combines pure science, material science, clinical disciplines, and biotechnology with the goal of repairing or replacing tissues and organs impaired by ageing, disease, trauma, or congenital abnormalities.

Educating interdisciplinary scientists

The BSRT offers a doctoral program for German and international graduates with a background in medicine, natural and material science or engineering who want to be at the centre of cutting-edge research in regenerative medicine. The program prepares highly-motivated young researchers to become open-minded and independent scientists with manifold career opportunities in academia, industry or public service. By crossing the traditional boundaries between the pure and applied sciences and medicine, it provides profound in-depth expertise and a broad knowledge across the disciplines.

Three tracks

The BSRT is divided into three tracks, the Biology Track, Engineering Track and Clinical Scientist Track each offering in-depth education in the specific discipline as well as training across the disciplines to provide an all round education. A new type of scientist will be 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. This makes the educational program of the BSRT of particular interest for those wishing to look beyond pure research and who are aiming to translate their scientific discoveries into clinical applications.

First-class partners

The BSRT works in close association with the Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies (BCRT), one of Germany's leading research centers aiming at translating scientific discoveries into clinical applications. The graduate school is situated in Berlin-Brandenburg, Europe's leading region for biotechnology, within Europe's largest university hospital, the Charité, which provides an ideal setting for exciting and innovative scientific research. The BSRT brings together Berlin and Potsdam's universities and other renowned research institutions in and around Berlin. These universities and several of Germany's large research organisations such as the Max Planck Society, Helmholtz and Leibnitz Association open their research facilities to BSRT students and guarantee cutting-edge research and access to state-of-the-art technology
