Cancer Research in Dresden

Interdisciplinary research is essential to make progress in the fight against cancer. A close cooperation therefore connects the HZDR with the University Hospital and the Technische Universität Dresden at the jointly operated OncoRay Center. Together with the DKFZ in Heidelberg, the three institutions are expanding Dresden to a partner site of the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT).More
