Successful application for Cluster of Excellence (iFIT)

As part of the German government’s Excellence Strategy funding for higher education research, Tübingen will host new outstanding research networks starting in January 2019.
The Image-Guided and Functionally Instructed Tumor Therapies (iFIT) Cluster of Excellence succeeded in the application for a seven years funding period. The Cluster aims to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the biological processes in tumors in order to develop innovative and sustainable cancer treatments. The researchers seek to comprehensively map the biological processes in tumors using functional genetic analysis and to identify potential weak points which new medications could target.
