Areas of research focus at the UMG
Göttingen Medical School meets all of the requirements to address both columns of individualised cancer treatment to the same extent both scientifically and clinically and to drive forward both the developments in biological tumour stratification and in individualised patient stratification.
The University Cancer Centre (G-CCC)
The centrepiece of the oncological focus is the University Cancer Centre (G-CCC: Göttingen Comprehensive Cancer Center), under the umbrella of which all oncological clinics and institutes are combined and linked to external members through partnerships. Within the network of German cancer centres, the G-CCC works closely with national and international research institutes.
Together with Hannover Medical School it also forms the Comprehensive Cancer Center Lower Saxony (CCC-N). In this merger, both locations combine their expertise of oncological diseases and collaborate closely with their partner clinics and practices.
