Ties Between Science and Clinical Practices
Prof. Dr. Georg Lenz is an oncologist and haematologist, he mainly treats patients at the University Hospital Münster who suffer from aggressive cancer of the lymphatic glands. But you will not only meet him in the hospital. Prof. Lenz spends a good share of his working time in his laboratory. He is doing research work on new medical treatment approaches on a molecular level in order to improve the recovery chances of patients with lymph gland cancer. Lenz’ position was created for the purpose of combining just these two fields of activity. He is CiM Professor of Translational Oncology. The concept behind it is: the medical doctor and scientist should, wherever possible, directly apply his scientific findings to clinical therapy and take up and intern apply impulses from the clinic to his research.
