Since the power being fed from photovoltaic systems and wind turbines actually depends on the environmental conditions and not the current demand, storage facilities – in addition to a number of other measures – are indispensable in order to balance supply and demand.

New, faster, and primarily more gentle diagnostic and therapeutic procedures can help to fight the disease and to save lives. Cancer research at the HZDR addresses several major topics: The scientists conduct research, for example, on new radiopharmaceuticals for the diagnosis of cancer and for the characterization of cancer tissue and, as a further development, also investigate substances for the cancer therapy of tomorrow.
