Particle detectors find increasing applications in medicine. The broad spectrum of particles used in medicine requires a variety of instruments, which are mostly based on concepts originally developed within HEP, Nuclear Physics or Astro-physics. The optimization of these instruments for clinical use will be shown on examples in dosimetry, beam diagnostics and in the wide field of imaging.

Astroparticle physics is an exciting new field of research at the interface between particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. After briefly addressing some of the fundamental questions it is trying to answer, I will review the newest experimental developments in this varied field, with emphasis on present and future detector technologies for dark matter searches.
