Radiation Medical Physics Group
Basic research on the application of ion beams in life sciences is being conducted in the group of radiation medical physics. It includes cancer therapy with ion beams, ion beam biological effects and corresponding mechanisms, bio-medical applications of ion beam radiation, and so on. These researches are involved in interdiscipline as medical physics, biophysics, nuclear technique application, etc. The research activities in the group are as follows: (1) biophysical modeling of ion beam radiation; (2) conformal and intensity-modulated radiation therapy techniques of ion beams; (3) biological-based ion beam treatment planning system; (4) experimental research on ion beam biological effects and corresponding mechanisms; (5) dosimetry of ion beam radiation; (6) application of ion beam radiation breeding technique.
