DCPT is the national Danish proton therapy facility and platform for research at the highest international level.

The Danish Centre for Particle Therapy (DCPT) provides proton radiotherapy for patients with cancer and benign tumours. As the only proton facility in Denmark, we treat patients from all across the country in close collaboration with Danish oncology departments. We also treat patients from abroad if we have available capacity.

The centre houses a comprehensive international research group. The group carries out pre-clinical-, experimental-, translational- and clinical research within radiation oncology, medical physics and radiobiology.   

DCPT also has an extensive clinical research programme with a focus on gathering clinical evidence to develop treatment. We work closely together across disciplines with a collective goal to deliver treatment of the highest quality, improve outcome and patient experience.


  • DCPT is located at Aarhus University Hospital and started patient treatment in January 2019.
  • DCPT has more than 80 clinical staff members and houses more than 50 scientists funded by Aarhus University and external grants.
  • The facility covers an area of approximately 10,000 square feet. The DCPT building and equipment is funded by the A.P. Møller Foundation, the Danish state and Central Denmark Region.
