Health & Medical Sciences Student Wins ESTRO33 Poster Competition
30 May 2014
In April 2014, Hayley Chesham, one of the first students to enrol on UCL's new flexible Graduate Programme in Health & Medical Sciences, and in clinical life Research & Development Lead Dosimetrist at Cancer Partners UK, was awarded the prize for her poster entitled Reduced PTV margins for prostate IMRT with daily online IGRT: a retrospective analysis.
Hayley, who is based at Cancer Partners UK’s Elstree Cancer Centre in Hertfordshire, said: “It is early days and this was just a summary of our initial findings from the pilot study of eleven patients... It’s very exciting, and we’re looking forward to completing the research and determining our final conclusion over the next few months.”
Over 1,800 abstracts were submitted to ESTRO33, of which over 500 were displayed as posters on at the event. Each was scored by four members of the Scientific Advisory Group, chaired by Michelle Leech, head of discipline of radiation therapy at the School of Medicine in Dublin, Ireland, who said: "The jury took into account the academic content as well as poster layout, creativity and visualisation. They also rated the information’s relevance to the profession and its value to radiation therapy technologists in their daily practice."
Hayley added: “I was surprised but really pleased to have won. Dr Ariyaratne [clinical research fellow] and I have worked hard on the project, and a lot of work still needs to be done, but it’s nice to have our initial results well received by the European radiotherapy community.”
Hayley trained at the University of Sydney in Australia and worked at
The London Clinic before joining Cancer Partners UK four years ago. She
started as a senior dosimetrist at Elstree Cancer Centre before
developing her career by joining the newly established research unit in
