Why and how does therapy with radon work?
New research project funded with three million Euro
In a new research project lead-managed by GSI the anti-inflammatory therapeutic properties and the risks of a therapy with radon will be studied. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project Grewis (Genetische Risiken und entzündungshemmende Wirkung von ionisierender Strahlung, meaning genetical risks and anti-inflammatory properties of ionizing radiation) with three million Euro in the next 3,5 years. Research partners of GSI are the technical university in Darmstadt, the universities of Erlangen and Frankfurt and the Federal Office for Radiation Protection.
