Institute presentation

DKFZ is Germany´s largest cancer research institute with a prime focus in preclinical and clinical cancer research embedded in one of the largest biomedical environments in Germany. Thus, there is an enormous accumulation of many highly competitive preclinical and clinical/translational research groups at the institution.

In general, DKFZ is dedicated to cancer research including a strong focus in preclinical and clinical PDAC research due to the scientific interest of clinical departments (e.g. Surgical Department, University Hospital Heidelberg) and many preclinical groups. DKFZ is highly experienced in the generation and characterisation of GEMM extensively and competing with the largest research labs worldwide.
