DNPM – German Network for Personalised Medicine

DNPM – German Network for Personalised Medicine

The aim of the project is to establish Centres for Personalised Medicine at a further 13 locations nationwide and to bundle the competences in a German Network for Personalised Medicine (DNPM). In particular, the project partners will develop common standards and establish so-called „molecular tumour boards“ to provide patients with the best possible individualised treatment. A joint database will serve quality assurance and provide new insights for the further development of personalised medicine. The accompanying evaluation will examine in particular whether patients benefit directly from the new standards and structures and what challenges are associated with the establishment of corresponding centres. The Certification Commission of the German Cancer Society will develop requirements for the Centres for Personalised Medicine on the basis of which they will be certified.
