Collaborative Research

The Comprehensive Cancer Center Freiburg – CCCF fosters and integrates basic research as well as translational and clinical cancer research leading to innovative therapies. We are closely connected with institutions in the surrounding region and participate in research networks. Germany-wide collaborations, for example within the framework of the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK), help to consolidate synergies in translational research and shorten the path of new discoveries from the laboratory to clinical trials. 

The scientists in the CCCF departments coordinate or contribute to the following research collaborations, clusters of excellence, collaborative research centers, priority programs, and cohorts:
