Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU) has a long tradition of contributing to EU programmes in the life sciences. Resources of the centre that will be made available to the contract include the Proteomics Core Facility, Metabolomics Platform, Genome Analysis Centre and the German Mouse Clinic.

The Institute of Radiation Biology, directed by Prof. Michael Atkinson, involved in the CEREBRAD project, is member of current/recent EURATOM contracts: DoReMi (WP leadership Atkinson), CARDIORISK (WP leadership Tapio), STORE (WP leadership Tapio). Methods and facilities available to the consortium are Cs-137 radiation source for cells, free flow electrophoresis, microRNA transcriptomic profiling and Proteomics Core Facility with following instrumentation: nanoHPLC; MS (OrbiTrap XL, Q-TRAP 4000 and MALDI-TOFTOF technology, MALDI-Imaging). This state of the art equipment will speed throughput and enhance the number of proteins detectable and will be made available to the CEREBRAD consortium, thereby increasing the power of the analyses.
