HZDR Research Sites

In addition to its headquarters in Dresden, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf has three other research sites. Researchers of the Institute of Radiooncology at HZDR also work at the OncoRay Center, a site at the University Hospital Dresden.

Directors: Prof. Jens Gutzmer | Prof. Markus Reuter

Scientists carry out research on new technologies for exploration, extraction and exploitation of mineral and metal-containing raw materials.

Contact: Prof. Dr. Peter Brust  |  Dr. Johanna Lippmann-Pipke

The HZDR scientists in Leipzig investigate the transport of (toxic) substances in geological systems and also neurotracers for diagnosing and treating cancer-related cognitive defects.

Accelerator tunnel of the European XFEL; Picture: DESYThe HZDR is currently installing the extreme lab HIBEF at the European XFEL in Schenefeld near Hamburg.

Contact: Dr. Carsten Baehtz

The goal is that, starting in 2018, the HIBEF infrastructures at the High-Energy Density Science Instrument (HED) will be used to conduct experiments under extreme conditions of high pressures, temperatures, or electromagnetic fields. Head of the international user consortia is Prof. Thomas Cowan, Director at the HZDR Institute of Radiation Physics.
