The University Cancer Center Hamburg (UCCH) represents the organisational unit of all departments and institutes at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) involved in prevention, diagnosis, therapy and research of cancer. In this respect, the UCCH is constantly trying to further advance the state-of-the-art care for cancer patients and acts as a research and education/knowledge partner to develop and offer innovative diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for cancer patients. Since its foundation in 2007, it is the clear mission of the UCCH to not only restrict its aims and new developments to the UCCH members inside the UKE but to develop cooperations and networks with external partners in clinical care (office-based physicians and hospitals) and cancer research (office-based physicians, hospitals, scientific institutes and organisations) in order to achieve a broad and sector-crossing common structure for academic clinical and preclinical research as well as patient care on the highest possible level within the metropolitan region of Hamburg.

In the following you will find all information about our partners and the individual networks.
