Cancer Research in Frankfurt

Frankfurt has a vibrant life science community. On the Science Campus of the Goethe University in the north of Frankfurt, the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics, the Buchman Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (BMLS), Europe’s largest Center for Biomolecular Resonance Spectroscopy and the faculties for chemistry and pharmacy focus on structural biology and medicinal chemistry.

On the medical campus in the south of Frankfurt (about 5 miles from the science campus), the University Hospital is surrounded by several institutions such as the Georg-Speyer-Haus (GSH) and the Paul-Ehrlich Institute (PEI) that work on cell signaling, tumor microenvironment, immunotherapy, cancer stem cells and advanced cellular cancer therapies.

Within the University Hospital and Nordwest Hospital, the UCT brings together all clinicians and scientists in the field of oncology with its partners to work in five research programs.
