There are intensive collaborations with several Chinese universities, such as Tongji University Shanghai, Second Military Medical University Shanghai, Third Military Medical University Chongching, High School of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Dept. of Pathology, Hangzhou, Beijing University, Hospital 301 and Hangzhou Normal University.

One focus is the establishment of new pathology laboratories (anatomic and molecular pathology) in China in collaboration with Virchow Laboratories Group Ltd. in Shanghai/Beijing/Hangzhou. The first four laboratories are working at Dong Fang Hospital, Shanghai, and at Hospital No. 2 of Hangzhou Normal University.


There is a long-standing cooperation between several colleagues from the University of Habana and the Charité, focusing in particular on experimental and surgical pathology. Infectious diseases and various problems in oncology have been the topics of scientific exchange. As a result, a number of scientific publications and exchanges have been produced.
