NCT

National Center for
Tumor Diseases (NCT)

At the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) patients and scientists enter through the same door. This is more than just a symbol: NCT has made it its duty to connect research and patient care as closely as possible.

The NCT also strives to offer each patient a personalized treatment option specifically tailored for his or her individual needs. This approach uses modern precision oncology and reaches far beyond the borders of traditional disciplines. The joint aspiration of both NCT institutes is to establish the NCT as an internationally renowned center of excellence for personalized cancer research and cancer therapy. Both NCT locations are oncological centers of the German Cancer Aid.

NCT Heidelberg

The National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) in Heidelberg was founded in 2004 as an exceptional alliance between the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Heidelberg University Hospital, the Heidelberg Medical Faculty, and German Cancer Aid (Deutsche Krebshilfe).
