The project for an advanced Heavy Ion Therapy Research Integration plus (HITRIplus) aims at bringing together, integrating on European scale, and opening up to European researchers from academia and industry, the key research infrastructures for bio-physics and medical research on cancer treatment with heavy ion beams, jointly developing at the same time the next generation of its sophisticated instruments.
HITRIplus’ coordinator is the National Center for Oncological Hadrontherapy - CNAO, in Pavia (Lombardy region).
CNAO is the only centre in Italy that uses hadrontherapy with both protons and carbon ions to treat tumours.
The 15th monthly seminar for the HITRIplus project will be held on Tuesday 23rd January at 17:00 CET.
Professor Laura Vallow, Professor of Radiation Oncology and the Department Chair for the Department of Radiation Oncology at Mayo Clinic Florida, will present “Building the First Carbon Therapy Center in North America: The Mayo Clinic Florida Experience”.
