„Der Simulierte Mensch“ ("The Simulated Human", Si-M) is a new research building which is currently under construction and is expected to be finished in 2023. The building site is directly adjacent to the Charité Campus Virchow-Klinikum of the Charité - Universitätsmedizin in Berlin-Wedding and is also the birthplace of biotechnology at the TU Berlin.

The initiators of Si-M are Roland Lauster (Head of the Department of Medical Biotechnology at TU Berlin) and Andreas Thiel (Head of the research group Regenerative Immunology and Aging at Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin). They applied for the research building in 2018 (GG §91b) and successfully defended it before the German Science Council.

In the building, scientists from both institutions will work together to simulate the functions of human cells and tissues with new technologies of 3D cultivation, multi-organ chips or 3D bioprinting. In contrast to already existing collaborative projects, the building will be used to practice the joint development of models "side by side" in the same laboratory environment. In this way, both the development of organ models and technological developments can be adapted and optimized at the same time.
