Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum Stiftung des öffentlichen Rechts - Smart Technologies for Tumor Therapy

In summer of 2019, the DKFZ founded Germany's first DKFZ external site in Dresden. In Dresden, the DKFZ, together with the Excellence University of Dresden and its University Medicine Department, also maintains sites of the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) and the German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research (DKTK). The DKFZ site Dresden is to be established to develop innovative technology-based approaches for tumor diagnostics and therapy as well as a contact point for prevention. With its high-tech profile, Dresden offers an excellent environment for this.
