The rise of next generation sequencing (NGS) has opened up new opportunities for translating high-throughput functional genomics into clinical practice. By combining forces between genomics, systems biology and translational oncology, the DKFZ has launched the Heidelberg Center for Personalized Oncology (DKFZ-HIPO) in 2011. The goal of this center is to develop a program for personalized oncology that will readily translate latest research and technologies from the field of functional genomics and systems biology into clinical practice.
DKFZ-HIPO integrates high-level expertise in functional genomics, systems biology and translational oncology under a unified organizational structure.
The center consists of the three vertical programs:
HIPOgen – Genome Analysis (head: Peter Lichter),
HIPOsys – Systems Biology (head: Roland Eils),
HIPOmed – Precision Oncology (head: Christof von Kalle).
