Royals @ DKFZ

Visit of Prince Wiliam, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, to the German Cancer Research Center, July 20th, 2017


Josef Puchta, Administrative Director DKFZ

"If you look at the tight schedule of the royal tour to Germany, it is a huge honor that the DKFZ was selected for a visit."


Michael Milsom, group leader of the Junior Research Group "Experimental Hematology" at the German Cancer Research Center and at the Heidelberg Institute for Stem Cell Technology and Experimental Medicine (HI-STEM)

"The elevator door opened and it was a little surreal to watch the royal couple suddenly stood in front of me.
But then I gave them their lab coats and took them through to the lab, where I explained to them how a misdirected gene in blood stem cells can cause a particularly aggressive form of blood cancer. The Duchess and the Duke were very interested in how our work relates to the development of new therapies for cancer patients and asked a number of great questions about this."

Michael Baumann, Chairman and Scientific Director DKFZ

"It was a very special experience to meet the Duke and Duchess. They seemed open and were very engaged in our discussions. I think that they both understand very well the importance that health research has for our society. That is true just as much in Great Britain as in Germany. Research relies on international cooperation – even Brexit won't change that."
