NCT is a comprehensive cancer center uniquely positioned to benefit from the wealth of DKFZ cancer research
Initiated in 2003, and actively treating patients since 2005, the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) Heidelberg was founded as an exceptional alliance between the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Heidelberg University Medical School (HUMS) together with Heidelberg Medical Faculty and German Cancer Aid (Deutche Krebshilfe). NCT is a comprehensive cancer center uniquely positioned to benefit from the wealth of DKFZ cancer research and the Heidelberg biomedical campus.

Established in 1964, the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) is the largest biomedical research center in Germany and one of Europe's leading oncologic research institutions. In over 100 divisions and research groups, a staff of approximately 3000 members including more than 1,000 scientists have undertaken the mission to unravel the causes and mechanisms underlying cancer development and progression and, based on innovative research, to develop novel strategies for the diagnosis, early detection, prevention, and treatment of cancer.
