International DKFZ Alumni Groups

International DKFZ Alumni Groups

One of the aims of the DKFZ Alumni Association is to facilitate former DKFZ members to keep in contact with the DKFZ and each other. We have therefore identified cities where a critical mass of our alumni are now working and have established local groups listed below.

Upcoming Get-togethers

The following get-togethers are planned. Please contact if you'd like further information about any of these events.

25th August 2017: San Francisco, USA

The next get-together for DKFZ Alumni in the San Francisco Bay area will take place on Friday 25th August starting at 20:00 near Union Square in downtown SF.

If you are interested in joining the get-together (informal dinner), please let us know by sending an email to and we will provide you with further information about the location.

It would also be great if you could sign up via so other people know you’re planning to come. If you’re not already a member of DKFZ-Connect, then you’re very welcome to join either by connecting with an existing LinkedIn account, or registering with your email address. You'll find the get-together listed under "Events".

You might also be interested in attending the German Academic International Network (GAIN) Conference, taking place from 25th - 27th August in San Francisco, at which the DKFZ will also be represented with a stand. For more info, visit (the event is in German).

We hope that many of you can make it!
