The aim of the Alumni Association of the DKFZ is to support long-lasting personal and scientific relationships between present and former members of our center and to maintain the exchange of ideas and experiences in this ever growing world-wide community at the national and international level. A particularly important target group of the activities of the association are young scientists, especially those from abroad, currently or previously working at the DKFZ.
