NCT Heidelberg

NCT Partner Site Dresden

Since 2015, a second site for the NCT beside Heidelberg has been under development in Dresden. The NCT Dresden is financed by the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg, the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus, the Medical Faculty of the TU Dresden and the Helmholtz Center Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR). In Dresden just like in Heidelberg, physicians and scientists are striving to offer each patient an individualized cancer therapy that is customized for their specific needs. Both locations work very closely together and supplement each other's expertise.

Following the development phase, the facility in Dresden receives annual funding of 15 Million Euros, a sum that is financed 90:10 by the Federal Government and the Free State of Saxony. The Free State of Saxony has also made another 22 Million Euros available for the construction of a new NCT building on the University Hospital campus.
