  • Description:

    The mission of the Berlin Institute of Health (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 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 area at Charité – one that places emphasis on a system-wide understanding of health and disease and that promotes change in the biomedical research culture. The BIH is funded 90 percent by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and 10 percent by the State of Berlin. The two founding institutions, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association (MDC), were independent member entities within the BIH until 2020. As of 2021, the BIH has been integrated into Charité as the so-called third pillar; the MDC is privileged partner of the BIH.

    The Hedtrich lab focuses on tackling and understanding inflammatory and genetic diseases of the skin and the lung. Research projects within the lab are highly interdisciplinary and routinely require intensive collaborations with groups from other disciplines. For more information about the Hedtrich group and current research, please see:

    Your responsibilities:

    • Research project 1 aims to unravel the intracellular trafficking of the Cas9 protein which is a key component of CRISPR-based gene editing. This project is part of a bigger project that aims for the development of an in-situ gene therapy using CRISPR-Cas-based approaches as a new treatment option for severe monogenic skin diseases.  
    • Research project 2 aims to unravel the impact of extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling in inflammatory diseases and its contribution to the communication of inflammation between tissues. This project is part of the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1340 “Matrix in Vision” that aims to visualize and understand the contribution of ECM in pathological conditions. As such, the MSc student will be collaborating with several project partners in this CRC
