Despite constant progress in medical research, the diagnosis “cancer” has lost little of its terrifying effect.  This is why we do everything we can to offer those affected and their relatives the best possible help with medical structures at the highest level. The Bavarian Cancer Research Center (BZKF) combines outstanding oncological research with high-performance cutting-edge medicine. In close coordination with each other, the BZKF sites at the six Bavarian university hospitals and their universities are developing specialized research infrastructures on various issues relating to the development and treatment of cancer that are visible far beyond Bavaria. As a result, our scientists find ideal conditions to set new standards in the fight against this dreadful disease.

One of the most important objectives is the rapid transfer of basic research results into broad clinical practice. Another goal is to provide the Bavarian population with direct access to information on the latest research findings and to diagnostic and therapeutic options. In order to succeed, close cooperation with medical technology companies is essential. So please take the opportunity to explore the possibilities of partnering with the Bavarian Cancer Research Center (BZKF). I wish you a fruitful and intensive exchange, in accordance with the motto of the BZKF: “Strengthen excellence – Share knowledge”.
