Horst Görtz Institute for History and Ethics of the Chinese Life Sciences at the Charité

From the winter semester 2006 on, the foundation promoted at the Charité the recently established Institute for History and Ethics of the Chinese Life Sciences. Prof. Dr. Unschuld has been appointed director of the institute. With this endowed professorship an institute was established, which handles comprehensively and in an innovative way, the Chinese life sciences in research and education and which is thereby widely networked within the faculty and the universities. The manifold interfaces of the field offer extraordinary potential for development from teaching up to clinical research. The sponsorship ended in 2012.

The further research in the field of chronopsychologie by Dr. Manfred Kubny was funded since 2006.

Research with the titel „sematosensensorische und vegetative Therapie“ bei Dr. Florian Beißner were funded since 2010. One aim of this research is e.g. to show how Chinese acupuncture works.
