On the campus of GSI and FAIR, one of the symbolic desks of the campaign "Your story counts" is located. They are supposed to raise attention in the district of Darmstadt-Dieburg for the topic of violence against women. The campaign which was initiated on the occasion of Women's Day 2020 is supported by Frauen helfen Frauen e.V., the women's home Notwaende and "Mäander - individuelle Jugendhilfe".

In the tumor therapy with ion beams developed by GSI, so-called treatment plans are prepared prior to the treatment of individuals. Their validity is checked on models to guarantee a correct and safe procedure. The investigation of a new test option has now been published in the scientific journal "Physics in Medicine and Biology". What’s special about this: Dea Aulia Kartini and Gianmarco Camazzola, GET_INvolved participant and summer student at GSI and FAIR, are among the authors.

It is still a glance into the future: The combination of carbon ion and immune therapy could become an effective tool in the fight against cancer. Promising results for the potential benefit of this treatment combination have now been published in the renowned radiation therapy journal "International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics" of the American Society for Therapeutic Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). The authors are an international team of researchers, led by the Department of…

Very successful experiments, high-quality ion beams for research — the current experiment period on the GSI and FAIR campus has ended with a positive outcome despite the corona pandemic. At the existing accelerator facility researchers were able to conduct experiments with a wide variety of ion beams on numerous topics. This opened the way for new discoveries and excellent research opportunities in the future.

The cycling season is slowly coming to an ending, time for an annual balance: This year again, team GSI/FAIR has achieved a great success in city cycling campaign and has reached first place in the team ranking. A total mileage of 37,181 kilometers was covered. 142 employees from GSI, FAIR and externals participated in the campaign as team GSI/FAIR. The kilometers travelled avoided the emission of 5.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
