Biophysics & Radio-Biology Program Advisory Committee (Bio-PAC)

GSI has established a Biophysics & Radio-Biology Program Advisory Committee (Bio-PAC) that evaluates experiment proposals submitted to GSI in the areas of biophysics, radiobiology, and radiotherapy. The Bio-PAC members give advice to the GSI directorate on selecting experiment proposals that are submitted by individual users or user groups. Following periodic calls for proposals, the Bio-PAC meets two in two years. The Bio-PAC evaluates the experiment proposals on the basis of scientific merit and technical feasibility, and makes recommendations on the ammount of beam time to be allotted.


Next Bio-PAC Meeting


Date of the next Bio-PAC Meeting: 22 - 23 June 2020

Though this year's G-PAC meeting has been shifted from June to August due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Bio-PAC meeting will take place as videomeeting in June as planned.

Call for Proposals and Proposal Submission

Call for Proposals: open now, please visit theG-PAC webpage  regarding all necessary information.

Please select "Bio-PAC" in the webform for Proposal submission.

The deadline of the 'Call' is 30 April 2020.

Note: Though the deadline for submission of beamtime proposals to G-PAC has been postponed to June, deadline for proposals for Bio-PAC remains on 30 April 2020!


Please note that since 2019 GSI provides access to its facilities under INSPIRE (Infrastructure in Proton International Research); a contract within the framework of TNA (EU/Horizon2020 Integrating Activities). Please find more information here.
