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. They will inform about cancer therapy with ions and the current state of research, as well as about the activities of…

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.

Signing of research agreement
On June 12, a ceremony was held on the joint campus of the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research (GSI) and the international Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) to commemorate the signing of an agreement on collaborative research (Memorandum of Understanding) in the area of nuclear physics. The agreement was made between the Japanese RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research (CPR), GSI and FAIR.

Award ceremony
During their recent meeting, the PANDA Collaboration has announced for the third time its PANDA Theory PhD Prize. Every other year outstanding PhD theses of young scientists are honored with this prize. The year 2022 prize was handed over to Dr. Bai-Long Hoid for his PhD thesis “Taming Hadronic Effects at the Precision Frontier: From the Muon Anomaly to Rare Decays” by Professor Ulrich Wiedner, spokesperson of the PANDA Collaboration, Professor Karin Schönning, deputy spokesperson, and ...
