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.

15th December 2017: Berlin, Germany

This time, we have organized a guided tour of the “Humboldt-Box”, starting at 17:00. This will feature the history of the “Stadtschloss” (the city castle of the Prussian kings), and the realization of its reconstruction as the “Humboldt Forum” by means of models, pictures and posters.

For those of you who are interested in finding out more, an optional extra is a visit the “Schlossbauhütte” (the Stonemasons’ Lodge) before the Humboldt-Box tour, where the work of stonemasons will be explained and where you can watch the stonemasons at work. This additional tour will start at 14:00 and will cost participants 20 Euros per person. Places are limited and will be on a first-come-first-served basis (the Humbold-Box tour is free of charge).

After the tour of the Humboldt-Box, alumni are invited to join for dinner at the restaurant “12-Apostel” from 18:30, a short walk from the Humboldt-Box.

If you would like to participate in either/both of the tours, or join later for the dinner, please register with your full name so that we can book enough places and inform you about the final details: or send an email to

We hope that many of you can make it!

We're planning the next get-together in Boston to take place on the evening of Friday 23rd February, 2018.
