The city of Darmstadt is celebrating a special anniversary this year: since August 1997, it has held the honorary title City of Science - the first in Germany at the time. For the anniversary year, the science city of Darmstadt launched the campaign "Brought to the point: places of knowledge in Darmstadt". All scientific institutions in Darmstadt can participate with their own events and activities. The GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the international accelerator center FAIR,…

Detector system
An international research team with participation by the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung succeeded for the first time to create an isolated four-neutron system with low relative energy in a volume corresponding to that of an atomic nucleus. The scientists have overcome the experimental challenge by employing a new method.

Therapy – Treatment Facility at GSI and FAIR
GSI/FAIR is actively involved in the charity cycling event "Tour der Hoffnung" for the benefit of children suffering from cancer and leukemia. When the nationwide known fundraising event stops at the Bürgermeister-Pohl-Haus in Wixhausen on August 12, 2022 at 3 p.m., representatives of GSI/FAIR and the Association for the Promotion of Tumor Therapy with Heavy Ions will be there.

Radiation therapy is a proven approach to destroying tumours. However, it is possible that it might be able to do even more in the future – namely stimulate the immune system at the same time and so fight cancer even more intensively. Researchers led by TU Darmstadt and with participation of GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung have found that x-rays trigger a calcium signalling cascade in cells of the immune system. The results have now been published in the “Journal of General…

Professor Marco Durante
Professor Marco Durante, head of the Biophysics Research Department at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, has been elected president of the Particle Therapy Co-Operative Group (PTCOG). The international organization is active worldwide to promote particle therapy — tumor therapy with particle beams, as developed, among others, at GSI— and thus improve overall treatment options for cancer.

Luca Spano is the "Artist in Science Residence" at GSI/FAIR.
Darmstadt is not only a science city, but can also look back on more than 175 years of history of art production and promotion. What could be more obvious than combining these two important traditions? In the "Artist-in-Science-Residence" program, the association Kultur einer Digitalstadt and the three science institutes in Darmstadt, GSI/FAIR, ESOC and hessian.AI, bring art and science together in a way that is unique in Germany.
