Ceremonial laying of the cornerstone
The Governing Mayor of Berlin, Michael Müller, who also serves as the Senator for Science and chairs the board of Charité, emphasized in his greeting: "Once again, a groundbreaking ceremony that demonstrates that Berlin is the place where the future of medicine is being shaped. With our significant investments over the past five years, we have set important milestones to enable Berlin to develop into an international hub for healthcare that combines cutting-edge research with world-class patient care. The fact that we often collaborate closely with the federal government underscores the significant recognition that our researchers enjoy nationwide. Their findings benefit all patients in the development of novel medications and treatment methods."
