The UKE-tumorcenter will be supported by the Hubertus-Wald-Fund with 1.9 millionEuros over the next 3 years. A further 200,000 Euros will be received for special cancer prevention programmes."With this support we can now continue what we started three years ago," says Prof. Carsten Bokemeyer, director of the "Hubertus Wald Tumorzentrum – University Cancer Center Hamburg" In 2008, the trust had already provided 2.7 million Euros. Since 2009, Deutsche Krebshilfe (German Cancer Aid) supports and considers the facility as a Center of Excellence. The UKE invested 9 million Euros into the first phase of construction that has just been completed, says Professor Jörg Debatin, director of the UKE board.
