How can malignant tumors be more precisely visualized, characterized, and more effectively treated?

Some 500,000 people per year in Germany develop cancer for the first time. In order to advance the battle against cancer, it is important for researchers from diverse sectors, ranging from biology to chemistry and physics all the way to medicine, to cooperate with one another. Also relevant: The fast transfer of findings from basic research into clinical applications and back.


Cancer Research

Cancer ResearchCancer research at the HZDR focuses on several major fields: Specialized on Positron-Emission Tomography (PET), our scientists conduct research on new radioactive pharmaceuticals for the diagnosis of cancer and improve medical imaging technology. They also investigate new ways to target cancer cells with the body's own immune system and they also use radiactive drugs to irradiate tumor tissue from within the body. Additionally, our researchers develop compact and cost-efficent accelerator technology for proton therapy and find innovative methods to monitor the proton beams in real-time.

Research on Brain Diseases

Forschungsstelle Leipzig: PET-Bild eines Probanden nach Gabe von [18F]FlubatineThe main focus of research conducted within the Division of Neuroradiopharmaceuticals at the HZDR’s research site in Leipzig, Germany, is the early diagnosis of brain diseases like Alzheimer’s, dementia, or brain cancer. In collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine as well as the Faculty of Pharmacy at Leipzig University the scientists develop radioactive molecular probes for the investigation of cancer-related cognitive defects.
