UofG scientists lead the way in next generation radiotherapy research

In Glasgow, the funding will support researchers to develop and test new radiotherapy-drug combinations and new radiotherapy techniques. Scientists and doctors will focus on improving radiotherapy for patients with hard-to-treat cancers and cancers with poor prognosis, such as lung, brain, pancreatic, and head and neck cancers. And they will carry out research to develop personalised radiotherapy treatment, by developing new imaging techniques and identifying molecular and genetic signatures of cancers that can predict how well each patient will respond to radiotherapy.


Professor Anthony Chalmers, Chair of Clinical Oncology at the University of Glasgow, is lead researcher for the centre which could help to save the lives of more people with cancer in the city – and across the UK – in the future.
