The space-based DAMPE (DArk Matter Particle Explorer) particle detector has been taking data for more than 7 years since its successful launch in December 2015. Its main scientific goals include the indirect search for dark matter signatures in the cosmic lepton and gamma-ray spectra, the study of galactic cosmic rays up to energies of hundreds of TeV and studies on highenergy gamma ray astronomy. The measurement of galactic cosmic ray spectra are reported here, those being fundamental tools to investigate the mechanisms of acceleration at their sources and propagation through the interstellar medium. Results on proton and helium, which revealed new spectral features, are described. Ongoing analyses on the cosmic ray light, medium and heavy mass nuclei are outlined, together with studies of the so-called secondary cosmic rays. Latest results on gamma-ray astronomy and dark matter search will be also summarized.
