Isotopes of elements up to Z = 113 have been synthesized using medium heavy projectiles and target nuclei around doubly magic 208Pb. Synthesis of still heavier elements in reactions of 48Ca projectiles with actinide target nuclei has been reported. To obtain more information about production mechanism of transfermium isotopes nuclear reaction studies including investigations of massive transfer were resumed at SHIP, GSI. Nuclear structure investigations at SHIP have been concentrated so far mainly on systematic investigations of low lying Nilsson levels in odd-mass nuclei. Recently this field has been extended to decay studies of isomeric states in nobelium nuclei at E* > 1 MeV.
