The recent STAR heavy-ion results obtained in the first phase of the RHIC Beam Energy Scan program are presented. The measurements of particle spectra have been performed over a wide range of collision energy √sNN=7.7-200 GeV, centrality and transverse momentum of produced particles. The fixed target mode in heavy-ion collisions at the STAR experiment also extends considerably the range of search for the new physics. Heavy quarks provide an exceptional probe in understanding properties of the hot and dense medium created in such collisions. The Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT) and Muon Telescope Detector (MTD) upgrades at the STAR experiment at RHIC significantly improved the experimental capabilities of TPC, ToF and EMC detectors in measuring both open and hidden heavy flavor hadrons in heavy-ion collisions.
