Join a growing network

Virchow 2.0 is a growing research and innovation network in the German capital region. It brings together a unique constellation of regional players which are global leaders in complementary technology fields.

The competencies of the initial core academic partners are highly synergistic: the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) contributes cutting-edge innovations in single-cell technologies; the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) has expertise in efficient biomedical technology transfer; the Charité stands for broad medical expertise and rapid clinical transfer capabilities; the Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD) contributes the required excellence in innovative AI applications.

Experts from systems biology, medicine, biotechnology, physics and computer science/artificial intelligence are teaming up with local and national industry partners to develop world leading single cell analysis tools and methods for tomorrow’s diagnostics and therapies.

Some 15 pharmaceutical and biotech companies as well as AI start-ups, spin-off projects, foundations and investors, etc. are already supporting the initiative.

If you/ your organisation are interested in joining the Virchow 2.0 community and participating in the development of the cluster strategy during the up-coming conception phase (01/10/2021-31/03/2022), please contact the project coordinator Marie Vidal:
