The German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ) with its more than 2,500 employees is the largest biomedical research institute in Germany. Ever since its foundation in 1964, it has had the task to systematically explore the mechanisms of carcinogenesis and identify cancer risk factors. This is the common goal of its currently more than 70 scientific departments and research groups.

Assigned to seven Research Programs, more than 1.000 staff scientists and 500 scientific infrastructure staff are working to find new approaches in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
