Forschungsschwerpunkte

Das Tumor Bank Ovarian Cancer - Netzwerk (TOC) umfasst aktuell 13 rekrutierende Zentren und stellt mit Proben und klinischen Daten von über 6500 eingeschlossenen Ovarialkarzinompatientinnen weltweit die größte Tumorbank auf diesem Gebiet dar.

Dieses umfangreiche Probenkollektiv ermöglicht es uns, in Zusammenarbeit mit unseren nationalen und internationalen Kollaborationspartnern, zahlreiche translationale Forschungsprojekte durchzuführen.

Neben dem klinischen Management und der Durchführung von Studien beim Ovarialkarzinom hat unser Zentrum eine starke Erfolgsbilanz, die auf unserer TOC Biobank basiert und sich in über 200 Publikationen in renommierten Fachzeitschriften widerspiegelt.
