€300,000 for Cancer Research

Since 2016, The NWC has co-financed research for HPV cancers with €300,000.

The NWC supports the research centers where Nicola received treatments in 2015:

  • German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg 

  • Institut Gustave Roussy in Paris

It was a true European cooperation.

The NWC supports this effort so other women and men can benefit.

German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ)

DKFZ is the largest biomedical research institute in Germany and a member of the Helmholtz Association of National Research Centers.

In more than 100 divisions and research groups, our more than 3,000 employees, of which more than 1,200 are scientists, are investigating the mechanisms of cancer, are identifying cancer risk factors and are trying to find strategies to prevent people from getting cancer.

They are developing novel approaches to make tumor diagnosis more precise and treatment of cancer patients more successful.

In 2008, a very special distinction was the Nobel Prize in Medicine awarded to Professor Harald zur Hausen, who discovered that human papillomaviruses (HPV) cause cervical cancer.

The NWC continues to support the project “Head & throat cancer” at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ). The results of the project will be for the benefit of all

Gustave Roussy comes 3rd place in the ranking of specialized hospitals (published by Newsweek).

This place on the world podium of the best hospitals in oncology reflects the international base of the institute, both in terms of clinical research and major publications and in terms of innovations towards patients living with cancer.

The institute has many researchers who are regularly awarded prize at international congresses or learned societies.

The NWC co-finances the project “immunotherapy for cervical cancer” is led by Dr. Judith Michels, who was in charge of Nicola for the treatments conducted in France.
