Heidelberg Center for Personalized Oncology

Heidelberg Center for Personalized Oncology (DKFZ-HIPO)

The rise of next generation sequencing (NGS) has opened up new opportunities for translating high-throughput functional genomics into clinical practice. By combining forces between genomics, systems biologyand translational oncology, the DKFZ has launched the Heidelberg Center for Personalized Oncology (DKFZ-HIPO) in 2011.

The goal of this center is to develop a program for personalized oncology that will readily translate latest research and technologies from the field of functional genomics and systems biology into clinical practice.

DKFZ-HIPO integrates high-level expertise in functional genomics, systems biology and translational oncology under a unified organizational structure. The center consists of the three vertical programs: HIPOgen (Genome Analysis), HIPOsys (Systems Biology), and HIPOmed (Precision Oncology) and is headed by the three HIPO directors Peter Lichter, Roland Eils, and Christof von Kalle.

The following Technology Platforms are embedded in the HIPO workflow which was established to pursue the center’s ambitious goals: Sample Processing Laboratory (SPL), CHromatin And RNA Methods laboratory (HIPO-CHARM), Sequencing units of the DKFZ Genomics and Proteomics Core Facility (GPCF) as well as Data Management Group (DMG) and Bioinformatics.
