Faculty, Lecturers and Instructors

Many DKFZ laboratories are incorporated into our innovative Major "Cancer Biology" Program. This allows the students to experience cutting edge science and to interact with internationally leading scientists at a very early stage of their career.

The lists of lecturers and instructors from the various Research Divisions and Groups, who are actively involved in the Major Cancer Biology study program, are arranged according to the DKFZ Research Programs (Forschungsschwerpunkte)

How to become a Major Cancer Biology Faculty Member?

If you are DKFZ scientist or cooperative partner and wish to actively contribute to our study program by, e.g., giving lectures or tutorials, by organizing (part of) a HP-F practical, please contact the Coordinator, Prof. Ilse Hofmann, to discuss how your offer can be integrated to the program. We are always happy to welcome new active contributors!

In certain cases, teaching activities at the Bachelor level can also be honored by becoming a Major Cancer Biology faculty member.
