The graduate study program entitled “ONCOnnect” focuses on new therapies and diagnostic instruments in the field of personalized oncology. This occurs in four subject areas: Alongside the development of robot-supported surgical assistance systems and image-guided, high-precision irradiation techniques, projects are equally planned in the area of medicinally personalized cell therapy products and the utilization of computer-based simulations. ONCOnnect shall be closely affiliated with the Dresden School of Clinical Science. Natural scientists and physicians work hand in hand on both the care and supervision level as well as on the graduate fellows level in order to implement the transdisciplinary idea posed by the program to the best possible degree while ensuring a close interlinkage thereof.
