CSB Concept

To meet the BMBF goals – to create an attractive internal environment for top-rate clinical research, to create better career opportunities for the new generation of scientists, and to achieve high quality in patient-oriented research – the CSB has developed modules of bundled interactive measures.

CSB Modules

Management Module

An efficient administration under the Managing Director frees scientists to concentrate on research and treatment. Project managers accompany management processing projects on performance indicators, quality controls and communication strategies as well as IT projects. The internal allocation of flexible funds according to defined criteria enables the CSB to respond to new discoveries and developments.

Health Care Module

The Health Care Module includes the establishment of the Berlin Stroke Alliance (BSA), a consortium of 40 research and provider entities, and others. The BSA and the CSB maintain a counselling service for stroke patients and their families and friends ("Servicepunkt Schlaganfall"). Moreover, the BSA is developing a Stroke Management Research System in cooperation with consultants and external service providers to record patient flow, data collection and evaluation. Since February 2015, the Berlin Stroke Alliance is a registered non-profit organization.

Trial Management

The Trial Team supports CSB's scientists in preparing and carrying out clinical stroke studies. With its effective quality management it guarantees a constantly high level in its patient-oriented research. CSB's Trial Management is the first and up to now only ISO 9001-certified academic Site Management Organisation (SMO) in Germany.

iCSB (Imaging@CSB)

Non-invasive neuro-imaging is a key technology in the translative stroke research at CSB. A broad spectrum of modalities and expertise has been assembled. CSB seeks to fuse preclinical and clinical stroke imaging activity and is building a new platform: iCSB ("imaging@CSB"). It serves the intensive exchange taking place among experts from the various groups and enables the exploitation of synergies between different imaging technologies.

Clinical Epidemiology

Epidemiology deals wih the causes and spread of disease and other health problems. "Clinical Epedemiology in Stroke" applies epidemiologic methods to answer questions that rise in the context of patient care. The goal is to make an important contribution to improving health sciences in the field of stroke using the procedures and methods of clinical epidemiology.

Training

The Training Module bundles a curriculum and rotation positions along with stipends for master and PhD students. In Cooperation with the international graduate program Medical Neurosciences, the CSB offers a comprehensive extra-occupational curriculum in clinical cerebrovascular research called "Cerebrovascular Medicine". The first year started in october 2009.
Moreover, the CSB started the Virchow Scholarship. The deadline for applications is set at 01.09.2015 23:59 CET.

Research Groups Module

Two groups of young scientists and five professorships are being established. These research groups conduct basic, disease-oriented and patient-oriented stroke-relevant research at the Charité. The research is interdisciplinary, with neurologists, cardiologists, radiologists, immunologists and rehabilitation providers interacting in common projects. In all phases of a project, the CSB serves as a resource platform (experimental labs, trial team, training, regulating access to patients) and with its access to flexible funding can give kick-start support where necessary.

Experimental Lab Module

The Experimental Neurology Department has assigned a large part of its resources to the CSB. Other participating entities have contributed further relevant resources, so that broad methodological know-how, a plethora of models and state of the art equipment are available for preclinical stroke research.
