ABOUT THE WORKING GROUPS

The National Cancer Institute’s Radiation Research Program and the Radiosurgery Society made a converged, collaborative effort to create three Working Groups (Clinical, Physics and Biology) to address the clinical and scientific facets of GRID, Lattice, FLASH and microbeam radiotherapy, with the goal of conducting research to advance clinical treatments for patients. Members of the Working Groups are experts in the fields of radiobiology, medical physics and radiation oncology who work collectively to understand the biology, technical and physical parameters, and clinical practice of these emerging technologies.
