Cancer Research at CCCC

New understanding and methodological developments in molecular biology, tumor immunology and genomics have revolutionized cancer research in recent years.

The Charité Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCCC) is dedicated to the further development of diagnostic procedures, treatment techniques and drugs. Based on this new knowledge we are able to bring advances in the diagnosis and therapy of tumor diseases into clinical application as quickly as possible.

Knowledge from different research disciplines is needed to investigate the causes and combat these complex tumor diseases.
