Radiation therapy of resistant tumors

The Advanced Medical Instrumentation Unit and the Cancer Stem Cell Working Group (CSCWG) would like to invite you to two seminars given by Pr Claire Rodriguez-Lafrasse and Anne-Sophie Wozny from Lyon University.

Welcome to Lina and Shubhra!

Two new team members have joined the Unit in April. A warm welcome to Lina (research intern from University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris) and Shubhra (postdoctoral researcher)! Both will work on drug delivery systems.

Mini-Symposium "Radiation sensors and emerging applications in medical imaging, space science and materials science"

New detectors have been generating new science. Especially, the detection of photons and charged particles is the basic technology that has been providing advanced measurement in the field of biology, space science, material science, nuclear application, and so on. Actually, the speakers proposed here are comprised of prominent researchers in the various fields such as medical imaging, astrophysics, high-energy physics and muon science.

SAKURA France-Japan collaboration

Guillaume, Hong Huat and Vincent of the Sugawara Unit have recently performed carbon-ion irradiations at  the Heavy Ions Medical Accelerator in Chiba (HIMAC) of the National Institutes of Radiological Sciences NIRS/QST. Thanks to a bilateral France-Japan collaboration grant ("Sakura"), we have been able to work with our collaborators from QST (Dr Nakajima) and from the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) (Dr Saintigny).

New postdoc opening

A new postdoc position is available! The successful candidate will be involved in developing a hybrid drug delivery system using functionalized boron-delivery nanoparticles. Check this page for more information.
