Research Activities @ Biophysics
Biophysics & Cancer Therapy @
The biophysics group is an interdisciplinary collaboration
of radiobiologists, physicists, chemists, biochemists and technicians.
Basic research activities comprise cellular,
chromosomal and DNA damage induction by heavy ions
from the SIS and UNILAC accelerators.
However, most of our efforts are devoted to the
tumour radiotherapy which started
in December 1997 with the irradiation of the
first two patients.
The current status report on the heavy-ion therapy project is available
The radiotherapy at GSI is developed and operated together with the
the German Cancer Research Centre and the
Radiological University Hospital in Heidelberg.
Further collaborations exist with numerous
radiobiology and biophysics groups from
universities and institutes all over the world.
