The NeuroCure Clinical Research Center (NCRC)
Translating findings from basic research into clinical application
The NeuroCure Clinical Research Center NCRC was founded in order to provide patients with the fastest possible access to new therapeutic and diagnostic options. At the NCRC, findings from fundamental research are transferred directly into the clinic, i.e. they are made available to the patient. This translation is made possible by clinical studies.
Clinical Research Centers - CRC create the structural conditions for the efficient implementation of clinical studies, which are initiated by both fundamental scientists and clinical scientists. In Germany, such a concept is relatively new. In the framework of the NeuroCure initiative, in July 2008, such a CRC was set up at the site of Charité Mitte in Berlin - the NeuroCure Clinical Research Center. Here, in-house research-initiated studies (so-called Investigator Initiated Trials, IITs) are carried out as well as studies in cooperation with the industry.
The NCRC was certified in July 2014 as a Site Management Organisation for the development, conduct and administration of neurological and psychiatric studies according to DIN ISO 9001.
