Jointly expanding knowledge in order to advance medicine.
OncoRay - Center for Radiation Research in Oncology aims to develop innovative methods for biologically individualized, technologically optimized radiation therapy for
improving cancer treatment. OncoRay has been established in 2005 as an interdisciplinary research center by the University of Technology Dresden, the University Hospital
Dresden and the Helmholtz Center Dresden-Rossendorf. It is located at the Faculty of Medicine and offers high-level research facilities, internationally acknowledged expertise
in translational cancer and radiation research, and a dedicated postgraduate school with an MSc and a PhD program. The Institute for Medical Informatics and Biometry (IMB) is
part of the Carl Gustav Carus Faculty of Medicine at the Technische Universität Dresden. The IMB is actively engaged in various research projects within the fields of cancer
systems biology and systems medicine and trains students in the fields of biometry, bioinformatics and systems Medicine.
