In November 2011, HIT celebrates its second year of clinical operation. During this time over 600 cancer patients have been successfully treated.
It is to the pioneering efforts of doctors, scientists and highly skilled technical personnel of the Heidelberg University Clinics, who courageously perservered to bring HIT into operation for the benefit of the sick patients as well as to advance our scientific knowledge in this important approach.
HIT remains unique as it is the only such clinical facility in the world.
