Normal tissue damage after radiation and hyperthermia

Priyanshu Sinha, MSc

Graduated from Goethe University Frankfurt am Main with a master’s degree 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

Model-based Data Analysis of Radio-sensitization by Hyperthermia in Combination with Radiotherapy

 

 

Sergio Mingo Barba, MSc

received the bachelor in Physics by the University Complutense of Madrid (Spain) in 2018. After his bachelor, he undertook the application path of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Programme in Nuclear Physics in the University of Catania (Italy), the University of Caen (France) and the University Complutense of Madrid (Spain). During his master thesis, he participated in the ELIMED project where he carried out Monte Carlo simulations to study the laser-accelerated beam characterization as well as the dosimetric parameters at the irradiation point.

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

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.
