PART - Proton & Advanced RadioTherapy

People Publications Projects Grants

The treatment of complex cancers requires an evolution in the technology, techniques and software to increase survival rates and to personalise the patient’s therapy. Our research aims to bring new developments in a wide range of disciplines, such as physics, engineering, computer science, imaging science, biology, nanotechnology and oncology, to the field of conformal radiotherapy. 

About us

PART is a multi-disciplinary, cross-faculty research network featuring physicists, computer scientists, engineers, biologists, oncologists and radiographers based across UCL and UCLH. This involves academics, postdoctoral researchers, PhD and MSc students from the UCL faculties of Engineering, Life Sciences, Medical Sciences and Maths and Physical Sciences, and clinical physicists, radiographers and radiation oncologists from UCLH Radiotherapy.

An important focus of our R&D programme is the new UCLH proton therapy centre, due to open in 2018. Many of our projects aim at providing new tools and techniques to support the clinical teams delivering proton treatments.
