A new center for the fight against cancer is to be built in Berlin. The German capital has been chosen as one of four new locations for the National Center for Tumor Diseases, as the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) announced on Wednesday. Existing locations are Heidelberg and Dresden.

The Governing Mayor Michael Müller has stated that Berlin "plays a key role in decisively advancing cancer research and developing new approaches in the early detection and treatment of cancer". The new center will have 10,000 square meters and contain research laboratories, an outpatient clinic and an information center.
