The DKFZ was founded in 1964. For the 50 years in business celebration, an anniversary issue was released containing a list of the 20 most cited publications which were published by the DKFZ within this period of time. These publications include two articles, which were written by Dr. Frank Kischkel as first author during his time at the DKFZ. This award exclusively goes to publications which are of adequate scientific relevance as well as of adequate scientific quality. The magazine is available online. The most cited publications are listed on pages 16 and 17.
