Dear Sir or Madam,

The Life Science Community met again at BIONNALE two weeks ago. Over one thousand attendees discussed current developments and networked. The topics and projects discussed at BIONNALE continue to develop. One example of this is the company FaradaIC. The founder Ryan Gutermann was a finalist in the BIONNALE Speed Lecture Award in 2017. In our interview, he explains the factors that were important for the development of his company and how he wants to tap into markets with his product. 

How to bring innovative AI solutions for the healthcare industry to market faster in the future is the topic of the European project “Testing and Experimentation Facility for Health AI and Robotics” (TEF-Health). In the interview, the coordination team explains the role of data security, infrastructure and certification and why this project with a budget of more than 60 million euros and 51 partners from nine countries is managed from Berlin.

Noble Prize winner Emmanuelle Charpentier also agrees that the German capital city region is generally a good location for scientific networking in the current Braincity interview.

The next opportunity to meet us is at BIO in Boston (5 - 8 June 2023), where HealthCapital is exhibiting at the German Pavilion. On 5 June, we’re holding a business breakfast “Business Opportunities in Berlin”. Feel free to take a look!

"Be prepared to learn
new things constantly"

Ryan Guterman is from Canada and obtained his PhD in chemistry from the University of Western Ontario before moving to Germany in 2015. He soon after became Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces before starting his company FaradaIC Sensors GmbH in 2021. His research focus revolved around the invention of new electrolyte materials and their application in electrochemical devices. Now as CEO of FaradaIC Sensors, his goal is to create the world's first O2 gas sensor on a microchip specifically designed for mass-market applications.

“Ultimately, the goal is to
bring health-innovations
Made in Europe to the

Technological advances in AI and robotics have been unprecedented and have captured the imagination of companies, start-ups and researchers alike. The new EU-funded project “Testing and Experimentation Facility for Health AI and Robotics” (TEF-Health), with a total budget of around €60 million, aims to facilitate and accelerate the validation and certification of AI and robotics in medical devices. In the #ai_berlin interview with project lead Prof. Dr. Petra Ritter, Director of the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) and the Brain Simulation Section at the Department of Neurology with Experimental Neurology at Charité and project partner Dr. Dirk Schlesinger Head of the TÜV AI Lab we learned more about their innovative approach, the importance of data accessibility and being at the heart of Berlin's AI landscape.

"Basic research is the
basis for innovation" 

For her groundbreaking work at the molecular mechanisms of a bacterial immune system, called CRISPR/Cas9, and its repurpose into a tool for genome editing, Prof. Dr. Emmanuelle Charpentier won the nobel prize in chemistry in 2020, together with Jennifer Doudna from the University of California, Berkeley, USA. In 2018 she founded the independent Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens (MPUSP) to strengthen fundamental research on pathogens causing diseases in humans. In the Brain City interview, she tells us about her goals, her current research, advantages of Berlin as a science location and her love of sports and culture. 

The tip from our
relocation experts

Relocating to a new city can be tricky, both from a business as from a private perspective.

Our Talent Services team has put together a great landing page with an overview on the main aspects to consider when arriving and living in Berlin, such as visa, health insurance, learning German, housing, international day cares/ schools, etc.

And also from a business perspective we have you covered: Our business location center offers a series of HOW TO Session videos on topics such as setting up a business in Berlin, Berlin public funding overview, etc.

And then you can always contact us relocation managers for more details and further questions.
Looking forward to getting in touch and assisting you in setting up your business in Berlin.

Scientists from the Berlin Institute of Health have discovered that autoantibodies in Covid-19 patients are likely not to blame when patients become severely ill

Critically ill COVID-19 patients often have antibodies in their blood that bind to the body’s own structures, so-called autoantibodies. Scientists from the BIH at Charité and the Max Delbrück Center have now discovered that these autoantibodies frequently bind to not just one but multiple targets.
