Prof. Dr. Gazanfer Belge - Faculty of Biology / Chemistry | Prof. Klaus Peter Dieckmann - Faculty of Biology / Chemistry

The research team of PD Dr. Gazanfer Belge Faculty of Biology/Chemistry and the Hamburg urology professor Klaus-Peter Dieckmann received the Maximilian Nitze Prize at the 71st Congress of the German Urology Association.

It is the highest scientific award of the organization. The researchers were honored for their groundbreaking studies in the past years, which led to the discovery of a tumor marker for testicular cancer. This now makes the early detection of testicular tumors – the most common, malignant tumor illness in young men – possible by means of a simple blood test.
