Head: Dietmar Georg
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 primary research focus is on beam quality effects, dosimetry and Monte Carlo simulations in ion-beam therapy.
