Working Groups

About the GRID/Lattice, FLASH & Microbeam Radiation Therapy Working Groups

The Radiosurgery Society® (RSS) has made a collaborative effort to create three Working Groups (Clinical, Physics and Biology) to address the clinical and scientific facets of GRID/Lattice, FLASH and Microbeam radiation therapies, with the goal of conducting research to advance clinical treatments for patients. Members of the GRID/Lattice, FLASH and Microbeam 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.
