Webcast – FLASH MECHANISMS: Modelling the Mechanisms of the FLASH Effect
FLASH MECHANISMS: Modelling the Mechanisms of the FLASH Effect
Some things are too important not to share, which is why we are giving free access to selected sessions from the FRPT 2021 Virtual Conference to everyone interested in FLASH and Particle Therapy.
We hope you enjoy this lecture chaired by Prof. Jean Bourhis and we look forward to seeing you at the FRPT 2022 Conference!
Dr. Jan Schuemann is an Associate Professor within the department of Radiation Oncology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Schuemanm is the Head of the Multi-Scale Monte Carlo Modeling Lab. His research focuses on understanding radiobiology from first principles. He is the PI of the TOPAS-nBio project, a nanometer scale extension of TOPAS, that simulates the physical and chemical damage induction and following repair kinetics. Dr. Schuemann’s lab applies mechanistic models in the design and analysis of our experiments. Currently, he leads the MGH efforts investigating the potential in vivo healthy tissue sparing effects for FLASH proton irradiations.
Pr. Bourhis has been Chairman of the Radiation Oncology at the Institute Gustave Roussy (Villejuif, France), one of the most prominent Cancer Center in Europe, and moved in 2012 to the CHUV as Head of Radiation Oncology. His clinical activity is focused on Radiation Oncology Head and Neck cancers, he is chairman of the GORTEC, a cooperative group dedicated to Head and Neck Oncology. Pr. Bourhis has been for 15 years also Director of a laboratory dedicated to Translational Research in Radiation Oncology. He authored more than 300 scientific papers. Pr. Bourhis is also Past President of the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO), Past President of the ESTRO Cancer Foundation and currently serves as SASRO President.
