The German Cancer Society - First-hand Knowledge in Oncology

The German Cancer Society includes more than 7,200 individual scientific members organized in 23 working groups, 16 regional cancer societies and 38 sponsors from research-based pharmaceutical industries, scientific publishers and health insurances. All our members are active in the research and treatment of cancer with the aim to address our joint goal: the  fight against cancer. The society is not only open to clinical experts of all relevant medical specialties, but also to basic researchers, medical technicians, nurses, psychologists and many other professional groups working in the field of oncology.

As a nonprofit organization, we finance ourselves through membership fees, project-based funding, donations and income from asset management. Our office is located in Berlin. Feel free to find out more about our organization, our national and international collaborations and whom to contact in case of questions.
