Main Research Areas

The main research areas of NCT Dresden focus on high-precision radiotherapy, novel surgical techniques, modern anti-cancer drugs, biological imaging methods and molecular tumor diagnostics. Over the course of establishing NCT Dresden these areas will be extended and strengthened.

Prof. Dr. Stefanie Speidel is the first professor, whose research is funded by NCT Dresden. She is an expert in translational surgical oncology.

Soon, the professorships for "Translational Medical Oncology" and "Translational Imaging in Oncology" will be staffed with leading scientists and clinicians. Two more professorships are going to be announced. These professorships will synergistically enhance the oncological expertise in Dresden.

The first NCT junior research group focusses on tumor invasion and metastasis. In addition to that, NCT Dresden is currently funding innovative “proof of concept”-projects.
