The OncoRay - National Center for Radiation Research in Oncology, welcomed on 25.10.2019 the Thai Princess Professor Dr. Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn Krom Phra Srisavangavadhana. During her visit to Germany, she was particularly interested in the renowned proton therapy of the University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus in Dresden and to learn about the close interaction between translational research and clinical practice. Professor Mechthild Krause, Director of OncoRay, appreciated the interest and the first joint projects already in progress. With signing of a joint 'Memorandum of Understanding', an important step has now been taken towards further strengthening the cooperation between the Chulabhorn Royal Academy (CRA) Bangkok, Thailand, and OncoRay in research and teaching.
