State Research Center Institute for High Energy Physics (IHEP) is a research organisation in Protvino (near Moscow, Moscow Oblast), Russia. It was established in 1963.[1] The institute is known for the particle accelerator U-70 synchrotron launched in 1967 with the maximum proton energy of 70 GeV, which had the largest proton energy in the world for five years.[2] The first director of the institute from 1963 to 1974 was Anatoly Logunov. From 1974 to 1993 professor Lev Solovyov (Russian: Лев Дмитриевич Соловьев) served the director of the institute.[3] In 1978 a scientist of the institute Anatoli Bugorski was irradiated to an extreme dose of proton beam. He survived and even continued working in the institute. Since 2003 professor Nikolai E. Tyurin is the director of the institute.[4]
