Dear Sir or Madam,

Since October 2022, our Cluster has a new spokesman. Prof. Dr. Heyo Kroemer, Chairman of the Board of Charité – University Medical Center Berlin, describes in our interview the current challenges for medicine and the healthcare industry and the potentials that arise from them.

One example of the current challenges is dealing with “Long COVID.” In the capital region there are a number of networks and initiatives that conduct research on this topic, exchange ideas and work to improve care for those affected. Our article provides an overview of the activities.

Part of the potential described by Prof. Kroemer is the “highly innovative work” that is possible in the region. Start-ups are an important component of this ecosystem. Learn how start-ups are supported here in our special article. Or – even better – get to know the actors directly on site. Good opportunities are offered again in the spring by DMEA (04/25-27/2023) or BIONNALE (05/16-17/2023)

We look forward to exchanging ideas with you!

Dr. Kai Uwe Bindseil

Long COVID in Berlin-Brandenburg – research, networks and engagement for better care

Research on Post and Long COVID is still in its infancy and so is knowledge about how to deal appropriately with the disease. At the same time, more and more affected people need help. This presents a challenge to healthcare as a whole. In Berlin and Brandenburg there are initiatives and networks at various levels that are trying to expand knowledge about the disease and to create structures for diagnostics and treatment. Last year’s Innovative Care Future Workshop of the Healthcare Cluster also addressed this topic.

This is how the capital region supports founders

Berlin is ahead of the rest of Germany in many segments when it comes to start-ups. Also in the life sciences sector, nowhere else in Germany are so many financing rounds completed as here. In addition to the quality of life which Berlin offers, numerous other factors play an important role in this success. Founders in Berlin can rely on support from a large network of offerings such as incubators, mentoring programs and premises. 

BCSE - Where Rare Diseases Are Not Rare 

February 28 was ‘rare disease day’ – an awareness day for all people who suffer from such a rare disease. An important contact point for them in the airport region Berlin Brandenburg is the Berlin Center for Rare Diseases (BCSE) of the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin. Here, affected people of all ages find help, whether without or with an already established diagnosis.

Researchers of Max Delbrück Center develop a new method that is able to identify “zipcodes” that assign a destination to mRNAs

Researchers suspect that neurodegenerative diseases occur when messenger RNA (mRNA) goes astray in the neuron. With a new method, Marina Chekulaeva is able to identify “zipcodes” that assign a destination to mRNAs. She has now presented her method in the journal Nature Neuroscience.

Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) has discovered an unknown mechanism for how “starvation response” in body cells is triggered

Body cells burn off fat reserves when nutrient supply from food ceases. A team led by Professor Volker Haucke and Dr. Wonyul Jang from the Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut für Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) has now discovered a previously unknown mechanism for how this “starvation response” is triggered, and what can inhibit it. The results have been published in the renowned international journal Science.
