Precision oncology at CCCZ

Precision oncology seeks to provide tailored and more efficient cancer therapies that have fewer side effects. Just as every person is unique, every tumor is individual and different. That is why cancer patients respond very differently to treatments. At CCCZ, innovative technologies allow us to analyze tumors ever more precisely. Depending on the diagnosis, we examine the genetic material of the tumor, the composition of the proteins, the response of the tumor to drugs and its interaction with the immune system. These analyses allow us to select the best option for personalized cancer treatments for each patient individually.

Innovative cancer research to provide better care

At CCCZ, scientists and physicians from around 60 research groups and clinical departments work closely together to bring novel scientific findings swiftly and efficiently into clinical practice. We develop and offer innovative clinical trials allowing our patients to benefit from novel anti-cancer treatments and the latest research results. The overall aim is to develop innovative diagnostic and therapeutic concepts towards precision oncology and patient-centered cancer care.
