Fight every droplet: HZDR team develops new drugs against viral infections

Press Release of 11.11.2021

Prof. Michael Bachmann and his team from the Institute of Radiopharmaceutical Cancer Research at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) will receive a total of 350,000 euros over the next three years for their research project “Viroprotect: Inhalation Drug Against Infection”. It is one of four projects funded through the Else Kröner-Fresenius Foundation’s competition “Ideas to fight droplets”, as the foundation announced at a press conference today (November 11th, 2021).

An X-ray view of carbon: New measurement method promises spectacular insights into the interior of planets

Press Release of 05.10.2021

At the heart of planets, extreme states are to be found: temperatures of thousands of degrees, pressures a million times greater than atmospheric pressure. They can therefore only be explored directly to a limited extent – which is why the expert community is trying to use sophisticated experiments to recreate equivalent extreme conditions. An international research team including the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) has adapted an established measurement method to these extreme conditions and tested it successfully: Using the light flashes of the world’s strongest X-ray laser the team managed to take a closer look at the important element, carbon, along with its chemical properties. As reported in the journal Physics of Plasmas (DOI: 10.1063/5.0048150), the method now has the potential to deliver new insights into the interior of planets both within and outside of our solar system.
