Research focuses at the UMG
The research focus oncology is fundamentally about providing excellent clinical care for oncology patients and the transfer of new scientific findings from research bench into clinical practice as quickly as possible, which is a hallmark of university medicine. This is made possible also by clinical trials.
At the UMG, this means excellent basic research on top of medical care. This includes a DFG-funded research unit (FOR 2008) and also a DFG-funded clinical research unit (KFO 5002) as well as three German Cancer Aid-funded Max Eder Junior Research Groups, all of which are distinct for basic research at the UMG.
The strategic objectives of the research focus oncology are, in addition to further expanding the clinical and scientific infrastructures and their network, the advancement of internationally visible, translational, oncological research activities. One of the essential aspects for reaching this objective is an excellent education and training for junior clinical doctors and researchers.
In the research focus oncology, target group-specific programs such as a graduate school funded by the Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung and a clinician scientist program have already been established and will be expanded to include other research focuses and other groups (medical scientists, advanced clinician scientists).
