Elective program in “Interdisciplinary Oncology”
Medical doctoral dissertation in translational cancer research
The Department of Translational Medical Oncology (NCT Heidelberg/DKFZ, Director: Dr. Stefan Fröhling, MD) has a multidisciplinary team of physicians, biologists and bioinformatics specialists in all fields of translational cancer research.
Our activities include a program on the multidimensional characterization of tumors by means of whole genome and transcriptome sequencing (NCT MASTER), basic scientific projects as well as the planning and carrying out of clinical trials on molecular stratification. For example, one scientific and clinical focus is on sarcoma diseases. This project area also draws on the close cooperation with the Department of Applied Functional Genomics (DKFZ, Head: Dr. Claudia Scholl), the Emmy Noether junior research group for precision sarcoma research (DKFZ, Head: Dr. Priya Chudasama) and the Heidelberg Sarcoma Center.
For a wide range of clinical, translational, and basic research projects, we regularly look for motivated and committed doctoral students who are interested in oncological topics.
