HZDR Research Magazine "discovered"

"Discovered" is the English-language edition of our research magazine; usually it is published biannually like the magazine's German-language edition "entdeckt".

Each new issue of this easy-to-read magazine has a major focus, be it repository research, magnetic fields and forces, or cancer research. The magazine keeps you informed about research at the HZDR, new staff members or work groups as well as interesting events.
