    Annual UCCH Research Retreat in Bad Bramstedt

    The XIV. UCCH Research Retreat 2022 is now open for registration!

    The University Cancer Center Hamburg – Hubertus Wald Tumorzentrum once again invites UKE/UCCH scientists and clinicians involved in cancer-relevant research to meet for talks and discussions on basic, translational, clinical, epidemiological, psycho-oncological and health care research in oncology. This year we would like to welcome you in the “Tryp by Wyndham” hotel in Bad Bramstedt (as the hotel in Jesteburg closed).

    This year, as usual, we are planning an extensive one-and-a-half day lecture program on topics from experimental, clinical and translational cancer research. In addition, there will be a parallel program on "patient-centered research", to which we would like to invite the epidemiologists, psycho-oncologists and health care researchers of our Cancer Center. This part of the event will take place from Friday morning to Friday noon and will require participants to travel to and from the meeting themselves. For all participants attending on Friday and Saturday, however, we will offer bus transfer as usual.

    As the Retreat is funded by the Hubertus-Wald Foundation and additionally by the Deutsche Krebshilfe via the Mildred-Scheel Cancer Career Center, participation is free of charge, regardless of whether you will present your research project or not.

    Date: August 19/20, 2022
    Venue: Tryp by Wyndham, Am Köhlerhof 4, 24576 Bad Bramstedt
    Deadline for registration and abstract submission: July 8, 2022

    If you consider taking part, please visit our website www.uke.de/ucch-research-retreat which provides all further information on the event, our online registration form and all templates necessary for participation. There you will also find information concerning the application for the UCCH Research Fellowship for junior physician scientists and the Hubertus Wald Junior Investigator Award for Oncology Research.

    We look forward to welcoming you in Bad Bramstedt in August!
