Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory

This laboratory focuses on modern materials research in high magnetic fields. In particular, electronic properties of metallic, semiconducting, superconducting, and magnetic materials are investigated. This way the High Magnetic Field Laboratory serves as a research facility for both in-house and user projects.

Institute of Radiooncology at HZDR

The aim of the Institute is to improve cure of cancer through biologically individualized and technologically optimized radiotherapy. Focus and strategy - to bridge the gap between research and clinical application - have been defined in response to the high demand for pre-clinical and clinical translational research in this area. The Institute collaborates closely with OncoRay - National Cen­ter for Radiation Research in Oncology

Director: Prof. Michael Baumann, Prof. Mechthild Krause
