Glasgow Focus Groups

Our Glasgow radiotherapy research Focus Groups are truly multidisciplinary with representation from discovery and translational science; imaging, bioinformatics and the physical sciences; clinicians including oncologists, surgeons and pathologists; and allied clinical professionals from radiography and medical physics. They include members of all career stages from PhD students through to professors and lead clinicians.

The groups create supportive, inclusive and collaborative environments in which ideas can be shared, debated and improved, to generate high-quality multidisciplinary research proposals for external funding.

  • Lung and Mesothelioma Imaging and Radiotherapy Group
  • GLAHNC Glasgow Head and Neck Cancer Research Group
  • GGRBN Glasgow Glioma Radiation Biology Network 
  • Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma and Radiotherapy Group 
  • Colorectal Radiotherapy Research Group
  • Invasion and Metastasis Focus Group
  • Cell Death and Resistance Focus Group

We welcome everyone to join a group which best aligns with your research interests or a theme that you wish to develop in collaboration with colleagues.

Please email Anna Morris for details or if you wish to join the next meeting.

Recent Publications

An example of our recent publications:

Patient and Public Involvement Group

We have established a Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) group made up of patients or their family members or carers who have experienced radiotherapy treatment for cancer. We consult, work with and partner with patients and carers at all stages of the research cycle.

Examples of patient public involvement can include:

  • helping to plan and design research projects at initial concept or grant application
  • developing patient-friendly information and consent documents for use in clinical trials
  • recommending areas of focus for research planning and patient opinions to shape research priorities
  • sitting on a Trial Management Group to represent views of patients in research

 

If you have a research project, at whatever stage, that would benefit from input from our RadNet PPI Group please contact Anna Morris for further information.
