About the Department
The Department of experimental clinical oncology was founded in 1987 by the Danish Cancer Society as part of the previous "Cancer Research Institute" ("Kræftforskningsinstitutet"). January 1, 1997, the Department was included in Aarhus University Hospital but until the end of 2001 the Department was still associated with the Danish Cancer Society.
The Department works with development and improvements of cancer therapy through experimental studies and collaborations with clinical departments. The Department houses a "Clinical Trials Unit" and the Danish Cancer Society's "Documentation Center for Treatment of Cancer".
