Research Area: The vision of our group is the optimization of the treatment outcome of radiation oncology, alone or in combination with established chemotherapy or novel targeted strategies of drug treatment, with conventional photon or innovative ion-beams.
My main research interest is pre-clinical ion beam therapy, with a focus on in-vivo irradiation of small animals and successive dose-response analysis. We are currently adapting existing non-clinical infrastructure of an Ion Beam Therapy Center for pre-clinical experiments using proton and carbon ion beams. This includes development of adequate workflows, imaging, dosimetry and treatment planning.
