NCT Heidelberg

Research and clinic for adult patients

The NCT Heidelberg

While the KiTZ focuses on pediatric oncology, the focus of the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT), founded in 2004, is adult oncology. Both facilities in Heidelberg are based on the US model of so-called "Comprehensive Cancer Centers" (CCC).
Like the KiTZ, the NCT is a joint institution of the Heidelberg University Hospital and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ).
