Prianshu Sinha 


Normal tissue damage after radiation and hyperthermia

Priyanshu Sinha, MSc

Graduated from Goethe University Frankfurt am Main with a MSc in Physical Biology of Cells Cell Interactions (Cell Biology). Previously held an industry trainee position in the field of Microbiology but shifted his focus to pursue research with the long term aim to clinically establish combinational therapies in the field of precision oncology. His MSc thesis is focused on modelling adapting immune response in patient derived colorectal cancer organoids where my goal was to establish an allogenic CD8+ T cell cocultures system for physiological T cell expansion, and tumor cytotoxicity. During his PhD, he will be part of preclinical studies investigating normal tissue response to radiation and hyperthermia using established mouse model Long_Bio

Advanced optimisation strategies for hyperthermia combined with radiotherapy

Timoteo Daniel Herrera, MSc

Graduated from Instituto Balseiro (Bariloche, Argentina) with a bachelor in physics and a master in Medical Physics. His master thesis proposed a patient positioning system for radiotherapy treatments using augmented reality tools in a mobile application. After graduation, he obtained a grant from the Argentinian Atomic Energy Commission to take part in commissioning of radiotherapy equipment for a new oncology clinic. Afterwards, he completed his training as a radiotherapy medical physicist, gaining more than 4 years of clinical experience. His work in the Hyperboost project focuses on the development of optimization strategies for patient-specific treatment planning of hyperthermia treatments combined with radiotherapy. Long_Bio

Spyridon Karkavitsas ESR7- SMT

MR thermometry feedback-based planning

Spyridon Karkavitsas, MSc

holds a BSc in Physics from the University of Crete in Greece. He obtained his Msc in “Medical Physics – Radiophysics” from the Kapodistrian University of Athens. The aim of his MSc thesis was twofold. Firstly, to measure and characterize the temperature dependence of T2 relaxation time utilizing two major T2 mapping sequences: Multi – Echo Spin Echo and 2D Half – Fourier Acquisition Single- Shot Turbo Spin Echo. Secondly, using both of sequences he wanted to investigate the correlation between T2 relaxation time and electrical conductivity at a given temperature. His current scientific interests center on Magnetic Resonance (MR) Imaging – Guided Hyperthermia. Long_Bio

Clinical user interface for hyperthermia treatment planning system

Artemis Kontogoula, MSc

 Studied physics at the University of Athens and her bachelor thesis was about the reduction of coherent synchrotron radiation effects at the FLASHForward plasma wakefield accelerator at DESY, Hamburg, Germany. She obtained her MSc in physics at the University of Hamburg and in the context of her master thesis she worked on the deformable image registration (DIR) method for the calculation of accumulated dose for prostate cancer patients at the University Clinic in Eppendorf-Hamburg (UKE). During her studies she investigated limitations of the method, as well as parameters that can affect the performance of the DIR algorithm. Long_Bio

Requirements clinical RT+HT treatment data reporting

Carolina Seabra, MSc

Holds an integrated BSE/MSE degree in Biomedical Engineering and Biophysics, with a specialisation in Radiation for Diagnosis and Treatment from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. The Masters dissertation was focused on Prostate Cancer and Deep Learning. In detail, she used prostate histopathology images to feed a convolutional neural network, which could automatically classify tumour and non-tumour images. Afterwards, she worked as a junior researcher in the Physics Research division in Maastro, where she was involved in projects related to proton radiotherapy, mainly focused on investigating and developing imaging techniques to verify beam delivery.
