About the CSB
The Center for Stroke Research Berlin (CSB) at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin has been funded since July 2008 by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as an Integrated Research and Treatment Center (IFB). CSB research groups perform disease-oriented basic research, clinical research, epidemiology and health services research related to stroke.
The CSB has established internal structures to further research and improve research conditions: the trial team module to support clinical studies; the experimental lab module which holds resources for basic research; the training module including the extra-occupational Master of Science in Cerebrovascular Medicine degree program, and the Berlin Stroke Alliance.
Also participating in the CSB is the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine Berlin-Buch (MDC). Within the Charité itself, several hospitals and institutes are engaged in the CSB. The approach to stroke is interdisciplinary, with neurologists, neurosurgeons, immunologists, cardiologists, radiologists, and epidemiologists actively cooperating.
