Research training group 1739 receives further support – effects of radiation in focus

Radiotherapy is one of the fundamental pillars of cancer treatment; however, significant improvements are still needed for tumours with high rates of relapse and those in high-risk organs. The research training group 1739 at the Faculty of Medicine incorporates the molecular determinants of cellular response to radiation and its significance for modulating sensitivity to radiation. The German Research Foundation is also supporting the research training group founded in 2012 over the next four-and-a-half-year funding period. The training group’s research programme unites innovative concepts and the latest methods of radiation biology, experimental and clinic (radio)oncology, as well as biomedicine.
