We provide diagnosis and treatment of oncological deseases at the Heidelberg University Clinic. It is recognized all over the world as a center for treating tumor diseases. Over 100 years ago, Vincenz Czerny founded in Heidelberg an institute for cancer research, where cancer was examined and treated.
It was reorganized in 1964 into the famous German Cancer Research Center(Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ) Today the clinic works closely on
research and patient care with the German Cancer Center (Nationales Centrum für Tumorerkrankungen - NCT) - an institution that by its quality level meets the model of the American Comprehensive Cancer Center. The most actual scientific achievements are quickly adopted here for the patients needs.
