Charité — Universitätsmedizin Berlin
Charité — Universitätsmedizin Berlin, which recently marked its 300-year anniversary, is now the largest university hospital in Europe. Throughout its history, Charité has been dedicated to research, teaching, and medical care. The BIH - Berlin Institute of Health - represents Charité’s third pillar, alongside the Hospital and the Medical Faculty and operates as the executive institute of the Charité in the EU research project Screen4Care. The mission of the BIH is medical translation: transferring biomedical research findings into novel approaches to personalized prediction, prevention, diagnostics and therapy and, conversely, using clinical observations to develop new research ideas. The aim of its more than 400 scientists is to deliver relevant medical benefits to patients and the population at large. The BIH is also committed to establishing a comprehensive translational ecosystem as translational research unit at Charité – one that places emphasis on a system-wide understanding of health and disease and that promotes change in the biomedical research culture.
Role within Screen4Care
Within the Screen4Care project, the Charité will support WP2: “Federated Metadata Repository and Machine Learning for Rare Diseases” and WP4: “ML- and literature-evidence-based algorithms for early EHR-based RD detection”. Our main task is the creation of the "Screen4Care Common Data Model for RD“.
